Swoop

 IGS students worked with Swoop, a Drama and Circus company to create some fabulous physical theatre images.

Students in Year 11 created The Rainbow and a Monster through group physicality.

Swoop has spread a love for physical theatre to thousands of children.

Drama students will also participate in the Theatresports Grand Final, taking place this weekend at the Enmore Theatre.
