Year 9 drama activities bridging the generations

Year 9 Drama students have been exploring devising Drama alongside participants who look, act and respond very differently to that of their peers. Led by two University of Leeds MA students, every Friday Drama students have been participating in a series of intergenerational workshops with a group of volunteers from the West Yorkshire Playhouse’s 55 + creative programme Heydays. The group have been exploring how Drama can bond, connect and develop relationships regardless of age.  The workshops have been wonderfully received with both sets of participants keen to learn from this rare, exciting and unique opportunity.
