Students studying Dance and Drama at Southwark College finished their end-of-year performance in front of a sold-out audience at its own theatre on The Cut in SE1.  

The performance was centered around love and hate as its overarching focus, with an emphasis on the effects they can have on individuals and society. Students spent six weeks devising the themes for the performance, and drew inspiration from themes of jealousy and betrayal, redemption and forgiveness, hatred in society, self-loathing, forbidden love, and connection and intimacy. 

Olivia Rossetter, who studies Dance and Drama at Southwark College, said: I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and had such a fun time doing it. I really enjoyed being part of such a big group dance finale at the end. It brought everything together perfectly and there was a cheerful and upbeat ending to the show so that it finished on a high. We all worked brilliantly as a team, and really came together to ensure the performance was the best that we could do. Despite the challenges we faced, I am really pleased with the outcome.

Jane Button, Principal at Southwark College, said: Jane Button, Principal at Southwark College, said: “The Love and Hate Performance put on by our Level  2 students addressed important themes that students can relate to. We are extremely proud of their hard work and collaboration to put on a brilliant performance for friends, family and guests to enjoy. Staff have high expectation of the quality of work they will produce when they join the Level 3 programme in September.”

The Level 2 Drama and Dance course equips students with diverse creative studies in performing arts. Shows such as the end-of-year performance provide students with an opportunity to develop all-round skills that are required to move on to the next level of their course in either dance or drama, learning through a combination of workshops and projects. Students also have the opportunity to learn in different environments, including studios off-site, trips to creative venues and projects with external partners.
