The Tomorrow Project
As part of the school's Literacy programme, last term we teamed up with the Donmar Warehouse to take part in The Tomorrow Project: a series of workshops, talks and performances which use drama and theatre techniques to examine the future of our society.
Around 15 of our Lower Sixth Form students were involved in the programme, with pupils working with experienced drama practitioners to produce short plays based on key topics of interest (The Future of Criminal Justice, The Future of Wealth, The Future of Energy etc.) culminating in a performance at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA).
As well as teaching valuable performance techniques, vocal training and stagecraft, The Tomorrow Project offered our pupils the opportunity to learn from industry experts about the future of important issues, developing their analytical and debating skills to explore fundamental political, philosophical and moral concepts that shape the way that we perceive our world. Through tackling challenging questions about the future of society, our young people became engaged in discussions about the world that they will inherit, debating the practical and ethical implications of the potential changes and challenges of the next generation.
Huge thanks to all at the The Donmar Warehouse for organising this wonderful project, all of which is made possible by the generous support of the John Lyon’s Charity.
The Donmar Warehouse is a 251-seat subsidised theatre located in the heart of London’s West End. To find out more about the theatre please visit their website, or click here for additional photographs taken during The Tomorrow Project.
