Talented students from Southwark College's Dance and Drama programmes recently culminated 2023 with a spectacular performance that left the audience in awe as part of the College's Creative Arts Winter Show.  

The play's theme was "Madness," written and prepared by the students coached by their teachers. The surrealist play included a practitioner-inspired dance solo and group routines showcasing the students' abilities and journeys in Dance and Drama. 

The performance began with a captivating dance routine that seamlessly blended classical ballet and contemporary dance, accompanied by modern-day music from Pop to Hip Hop and R&B. The students began rehearsing for the performance just after the October half-term, where they worked tirelessly to perfect their techniques and prepare for the rest of their course. The solo routines and drama plays had a unique Christmas twist that added to the overall experience. 

The Creative Arts Winter Show performances were a testament to the students' hard work and dedication, which they had put in to improve their versatility, performance skills, special awareness, precision, and control.  

Ambrose Junior, a Level 2 Drama student, shared his experience preparing and delivering the performance. He said: "Delving into the intricacies of our characters required an extensive journey of research and exploration. Through investigation and thorough study, we unearthed valuable insights and broadened our understanding of the roles, allowing us to immerse ourselves wholly in the essence of our character. This intensive research phase served as a gateway, enabling us to expand our knowledge base and explore the nuances that define and shape our character's motivations, complexities, and intricacies, ultimately enriching our portrayal on stage." 

Scott Peasey, Vice Principal at Southwark College, said: "We are so proud of our talented drama students' performance as part of this year's Southwark College Creative Arts Winter Performance. Hearing about their passion for performing and the hard work that went on behind the scenes to bring this play to the stage was a real pleasure. I look forward to their next performance and learning more about their achievements in the industry as they progress in their careers."
