Tuesday – day three

Today we met and worked with the KIE first year students. There are thirty-eight of them. It was really interesting to start to discover what they would find most useful in our short time together. We kicked off with some improvisation activities and then began an introduction to applied theatre with some drama conventions. They have done mostly theoretical work to date, and were eager for as much practical work as possible, and to receive feedback from us.

We also met even more of the KIE 2 and 3 students, many of whom came to watch parts of the work we were doing with KIE 1. They spoke enthusiastically about Professor Spackman who has been working with them since February, and we have picked up that they are rehearsing a play to share with us next week. KIE 2 and KIE 3 are working together and are really excited for us to see “how much we have improved using your methods”! We are excited too!

After a packed day, Phocas and Leon drove us to the airport where we were reunited with our missing bag! Yay! Tomorrow should now be a little easier – many of our supplies, work notes, and name-tags were in this bag.

Many other bags were at the airport waiting to be claimed – we are already anticipating needing to repeat this process when our students arrive at the weekend… (send positive thoughts to the luggage Goddess!)

Signing off – it is late, we are tired and we still have to plan tomorrow (and maybe even get to watch the England soccer game showing later tonight!)
