‘The Welcoming Party’ Theatre Visit at The Manchester International Festival
Year 7 students took a visit to the Electricity Powerhouse at The Museum of Science and Industry (M.O.S.I.) to see a special performance of the Manchester International Festival performance hit, ‘The Welcoming Party’ this week. This built upon a special workshop that had taken place in school earlier in the term. The performance featured elements of dance, drama, puppetry and immersive theatre and explored issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers in the United Kingdom today. Following the performance, learners discussed some of the themes and issues in the piece. Everyone thought that the show was amazing and thanks to Ms Wystawnoha for organising the visit.
