U5 gripped by Othello production



Georgia Onslow U5 writes: In October the U5 GCSE drama students were invited to go and watch Frantic Assembly’s production of Shakespeare’s “Othello” at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton. Having attended a fascinating physical theatre workshop run by the company at Winchester College the previous Sunday, we were all really looking forward to seeing how the techniques we’d explored applied to this notorious production. As soon as the performance had begun we were gripped; from the tragic love scenes to the brutal fight scenes, every emotion was emphasised through rhythmic movement, resulting in a really intense, thought-provoking performance.
