Dance and Theater
Upper School dance performances held in the Fall of 2020.
TheaterTHING! is a 20-minute variety show of experimental performances for the online brain from the fall theater co-curricular. On Zoom, from three different time zones, students experimented with capturing moments of expression, creativity, and humanity during a time of chaos—this is what they found, and now they want to offer it to you for your Zoom brain.
In this project, students explored representing abstraction and psychology by theatricalizing the dreams of their peers.
What do health and theater have in common? In a showcase of original performances, the artists of Westtown’s Advanced Theater course will feature Healthful Narratives. Under the direction of McLear guest artist Shanaé Burch, who developed the Healthful Narratives framework, students created one-person digital performances about community representation, health equity, helpful collaborations, ethical storytelling, and historical memory.
