Summer School Fun

July marked the completion of another successful “Drama Matrix”, the fun summer course in Perthshire, tutored by Rapture’s Artistic Directors.  This year students enjoyed the enormous challenge of workshopping a wide variety of exciting play extracts - from Pinter and Albee to Byrne and Miller - while Margaret Milne choreographed two outstanding dance pieces.

One of the overriding themes of the course this year was movement:  students worked very hard with absolute commitment and, on the last night, brilliantly performed a stunning, abridged version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest in masques, based on movement influenced by the teachings of Jaques Lecoq – the famous French physical theatre guru.

One of the many, many highlights of the course was the workshopped extract from Rapture’s latest production A Streetcar named Desire (which opens in September and tours around Scotland until mid-October).  Everyone wanted to know who the cast was going to be in the actual show – well guys, wait no more.  The news is out! See our Facebook or Twitter pages for the latest!

Thanks again for being your brilliant selves. Looking forward to next year!

Can’t wait to meet up with you all somewhere on the tour!!!
