Dark Horse Theatre Company recently visited our Performing Arts students to deliver a workshop on using Kinect Sculpture, an interactive technology to create sculptures of movement. 

Both Level 2 and Level 3 Performing Arts Students attended the workshop, run by Lucie from Dark Horse Theatre, and participated in the project, creating multiple sculptures each.

The sculptures created by the students are to be exhibited at an after party at the Smile Club on Thursday 16 November (only over 18’s will be admitted). If you would like to attend the event, you can book a ticket here: After Party Tickets, Thu 16 Nov 2023 at 19:30 | Eventbrite.

Speaking about the workshop, Level 3 year 2 Performing Arts student Libby Armitage said:

‘The workshop was really enjoyable, we learnt how to use movement to make a party sculpture using Kinect, which is an exciting form of technology. The work we have done in the workshop will become 3D sculptures, my second movement created an interesting piece that represented my body movement. Thank you Lucie!’

Kate Shackleton, Performing Arts Tutor also added:

“It is a great opportunity for our learners to engage with a professional theatre company, run by and serving the local community. It was an exciting new industry link, which could lead to opportunities for work experience.”
