Acting students taking to the stage for livestreamed events
The Northern School of Art‘s acting degree students are appearing in a number of productions being livestreamed from Stockton arts venue Arc in May with technical support from Film, TV & Theatre students.
Second year students on the BA (Hons) Acting for Stage & Screen course will present the classic Greek tragedy ‘Antigone’ by Sophocles on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th May at 7pm.
The play looks at power and the place of the individual within society. This adaptation draws links with current ideas around media and democracy, with the themes feeling more relevant now than ever. The play will be supported technically by students from BA (Hons) Film, Television and Theatre Production and the performances will be livestreamed.
In the following week third year acting students present a showcase of new, diverse and exciting work they have created as part of the InterACT Festival 2021 on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th May. Students from the Film, TV & Theatre department will once again provide the livestream.
Each night will feature three dynamic and exciting plays that include clowning, issues around consent, a modern retelling of Emma and also will answer the question ‘Why do we keep going to football week after week?’
Tickets for all the livestreamed productions are available on a Pay What You Decide basis and can be booked via the following links:
- ‘Antigone’ by Sophocles on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th May at 7pm
