ISTA Festival Shanghai-Saturday, Day 2.

In the afternoon students took part in a series of workshops which ranged from musical improvisation, an introduction to Peking opera, set construction, clowning, physical theatre and commedia masks.

The workshops were a great opportunity to learn specialist skills and students had a chance work with different artists and other students outside core ensemble groups.

The fun didn’t stop when the sun went down. Students were thoroughly spoiled with a delicious dinner, served in an amazingly decorated dinning hall and followed by an incredible (and huge!) specially made cake. There was then popcorn as students settled in to watch the talent show. Some of our students were brave enough to perform.
