This piece shows us just what you can do with a couple of everyday objects, a couple of simple rules and a vibrant imagination. The WISS Grade 9 (Dance and Drama) piece follows the building blocks of the work of the UKs leading devising theatre company, Frantic Assembly. The company has performed, created and collaborated in over 30 countries across the world. The Grade 9 created a fluid, original, energetic performance with just two chairs as set. This bare setting is quickly filled with a pulsating beat and characters with their devised choreography reverberating with stories, references and relationships.

The WISS Grade 9 Dance and Drama group consists of students: Vanessa Bailey, Malin Stockare, Paul Johnson, Rachel Teo, Jade Vereecken, Patricia Kohring, Asha Luevano, Scarlett Lee, Tommaso Del Giudice, Alice Tian and Ambre Gestin.
