Let the Show Begin!
On 4th May the theatre company Face 2 Face visited Bembibre to perform three plays for our School.
Face 2 Face is an educational theatre company made up of a team of theatre and education professionals. In the last decade, this team has been a constant reference of quality in the panorama of English-teaching, garnering an excellent reputation with teachers as well as students for their professionality, sense of humour, and good work.
The key to Face 2 Face's success is the interaction between the actors and the public. From the very first moment the students are encouraged to use their knowledge of English to help the development of the shows. Members of the audience are invited on-stage, where they improvise some of the play's roles with the actors. Laughter helps students relax and loosen up, allowing them to draw upon linguistic resources that they might not use in a more formal environment, such as a classroom. The plays are performed completely in English, making participants "think" in that language and use the knowledge they possess. On the other hand, body language, mimickery, and the actors' gestures facilitate comprehension.
This year´s plays were: ”The Wild, Wild West” for Pre-school – 2nd Grade Primary, “The Sword in the Stone” for 3rd – 6th Grade Primary and “Hotel Canterville” for 1st – 4th Grade Secondary.
