As You Like It
- but NOT as you know it!
Using Shakespeare's original text as inspiration, and exploring the impact of conflict on global migration, the SAVVY Young Company performed a brand-new interpretation of this classic play, adapted and directed by Sheree Vickers.
Say now the king
Should so much come too short of your great trespass
As but to banish you, whither would you go?
Students from Wandle Valley school who attend additional specialist drama classes performed a short one-act play to an invited audience at the end of the Spring term. This year's play was an exert of Patrick Marber's "The Musicians" - with additional improvised moments created by the cast.
The Man with the Golden Banana
Spies, disguises, gadgets and sarnies! When the Sassy Assassins steal a Ruby from under the ‘watchful’… ahem… eye of the Security Guard, so begins a mad-cap mission by MI5 to London Fashion Week - to strut their stuff and stop the bad guys. This is a spy show… SAVVY style!
With a special opening act by Malookoo Dance Group, the Action Replay and Take-2 Drama Groups joined forces once again to create a show full of laughs, bananas and men in dresses!
The Hedgehog Protest
Our hedgehogs were revolting - again!
This time they took their cause to The Story Museum in Oxford, to protest as part of the annual Alice Day Celebrations, on Saturday, 1st July.
They also enlisted help. The White Queen joined their cause as well as the Duchess & her cook! Children and adults joined their march as they hit the streets and they even encountered the Red Queen in all her glory from Curious Company.
The Woven Stories Workshop
As part of the National Refugee Week, SAVVY worked with SamiArt to provide a morning of finger knitting at the Refugee & Migrant Network, Sutton. We literally knitted the world together and finished the session with a moving moment of solidarity. The hope is to develop this into a larger project in the future, knitting the community together.
