Last week, 18 ISK students travelled to AISM Mozambique to participate in the ISSEA Arts and Drama festival. This year's theme was "perspective" and performances as well as art pieces centered around this theme.
After strolling through the open spaces that featured artwork displayed by each of the attending schools, the festival opened with an all school improv performance, followed by dramatic performances that were prepared by each school. Students attended an amazing 2 days of workshops taught by local artists and performers such as: welding, woodcarving, batik, photography, collage, mixed media, stage combat, characterisation, improv, storytelling, and physical theatre.
The festival ended with a fabulous art show filled with polished student work as well as theatre performances created by drama ensembles based on what they'd learned in the workshops. It was an amazing experience, a well organised and FUN event.
ISSEA Band & Choir - Zimbabwe
ISSEA Music 2019 was a inspiring experience for nineteen ISK musicians. Students from ISSEA schools joined forces to create a Concert Band and Festival Choir with almost 100 musicians in each ensemble. Student musicians spent three days rehearsing with guest conductors in preparation for the energizing Finale Concert on the last evening. Special honors went to Paulina and Ike, who were invited to perform for "ISSEA's Got Talent", as well as Amani who wrote and read original poetry in support of the Zulu prayer "Ukuthula". Congratulations to all ISK musicians for their extraordinary dedication and musicianship!
