KS4 Drama – Frantic Assembly’s Othello 

 On Thursday  9th October the KS4 BTEC Drama students had the opportunity to watch physical theatre company, Frantic Assembly perform their much-revered production of Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’.

This was performed at Liverpool’s Playhouse theatre in the heart of the city centre. The students were unsure what to expect as this classic text was brought into the 21st century with its modern setting and current music.

However, from the moment the play began the students were gripped by its fast pace, seamless movement, and gripping plot of lies and revenge. With an interchangeable set, clever use of props and some fantastic performances from the cast, our students came away buzzing.

They can now take away the techniques they have seen and look to implement these in their own work as they continue their BTEC qualification over the course of the next term.
