South Essex College drama students produce dynamic performance

South Essex Dram

PERFORMING Arts students took to the stage at South Essex College’s Thurrock Campus to put on a fantastic production for their end of year show.

The Level 2 Performing Arts (Acting) students, part of the College’s Nu.Dynamic Theatre Company, showcased their devising and physical theatre skills with their production ‘Fight or Flight’.

The work focussed on a range of themes such as relationships, social media, family, and gang violence.

The students wanted to use the opportunity to reflect on these important issues and highlight how a single split second decision can have a major and often negative impact on people’s lives.

The performance’s underlying message encouraged people to take a moment to think about the consequences of their actions and whether it be best to confront a situation or walk away, fight or flight.

Jay Clinton, Level 2 Performing Arts (Acting) Course Leader, said he was impressed with the students and praised their hard work throughout the year.

He said: “It has been lovely to see them all grow in confidence, learn new skills and make creative decisions for this devised piece of theatre.”
