Perspective

13-15 October 2021
Venue: Annabel's

Devised by Dauntsey's pupils, the idea for Perspective was formed from and driven by the Black Lives Matter movement. Our process began in 2020, following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, USA. With a mixture of case studies and dramatised scenes exploring relationships, language and how people view the world, the show explores the lives of a variety of people of different races, backgrounds and ages. Running time: approx 45mins. 

Director: Charlotte Saville
