Poetry in Action Perform to English Students
On Tuesday 23rd October, the Poetry in Action (PIA) Theatre Company put on a performance for our Year 7-11 English students.
The travelling PIA Theatre Company is founded on the belief that poetry is not written to sit on a page in silence but demands to be heard. PIA believes that poetry should be spoken, torn apart and put back together, twisted, turned, adored, derided, loved and hated with equal passion and simply enjoyed by both the actor and the audience.
A team of three very talented performers highlighted the language techniques used in poetry such as; imagery, alliteration, rhyme, simile and so on. Their performances (United Nations, Poetry Quest and Words of War) were slick and brimming with energy and enthusiasm, drawing from traditional verse, such as bush ballads to modern monologues with a strong rhythm.
CVC students thoroughly enjoyed the performances!
