Year 13 Performing Arts Dance Students Visited Shadon House, Birtley on Tuesday 6th December as part of an ongoing Community Arts project. Working in collaboration with Equal Arts, Lord Lawson dancers have brought to life the creative writing of the Shadon House residents.

Over the past term the students have been exploring two stories based upon a fictional character named ‘Bella Stella’ devising an impressive physical theatre performance piece based on the ideas in the stories. The students premiered the piece at the Academy Christmas Coffee afternoon event and again during the Shadon House visit.

This performance was captured by local TV Channel Made in Tyne and Wear and featured on the daily news show the Lowdown over the Christmas holidays.

In case you missed the feature please follow the link below to view.

Join us in May at our Syllabus to stage showcase to view the final ‘Bella Stella’ Performance.
