Complicité Does A Level Drama

Complicité’s extraordinary ensemble of Associate Artists and theatre-makers took their A Level Drama qualification. 

To support students studying for their A Level Drama, the Complicité team joined them on the journey.

In October 2021, we challenged our team of practitioners and theatre-makers to create two new devised pieces of work under A Level conditions with the supervision of an experienced teacher. The team even completed the written component of the course, all undertaken in the Company’s trademark spirit of playfulness, curiosity and risk taking.

The resulting productions toured to London schools and colleges in Autumn 2021 to audiences of students who were themselves taking A Level Drama. Complicité Associates shared their experience of the devising process and exchange ideas through a post-show conversations with the students, giving a rare opportunity for students to access the Company’s working processes with insights into physical training and play.
