Turk­ish de­light for stu­dents at drama fes­ti­val

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE bright colours and busy sounds of Istanbul pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion for stu­dents from ACS Hilling­don In­ter­na­tional School.

Twelve young peo­ple from the school in Vine Lane, Hilling­don, made the trip to the Turk­ish cap­i­tal to take part in a three day drama fes­ti­val to learn more about theatre and per­for­mance tech­niques.

It was run by in­ter­na­tional theatre or­gan­i­sa­tion ISTA with pupils from across the world join­ing in.

Istanbul’s his­tor­i­cal Grand Bazaar mar­ket­place also pro­vided stu­dents with a chance to learn more about Turk­ish cul­ture and gain in­spi­ra­tion for their fi­nal work­shop per­for­mance.

ACS Hilling­don drama teacher Alyssa Bal­lard, said: “The fes­ti­val gave stu­dents a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the pos­si­bil­i­ties of bring­ing sights, smells, colours and sounds of the en­vi­ron­ment to life.

“The stu­dents had a great time gain­ing con­fi­dence and de­vel­op­ing their skills, and learn­ing more about Turkey from their host fam­i­lies.”
