Drama in Vietnam


A lucky group of 13 students (and their very proud drama teacher) from St Andrews International School in Rayong recently attended the Drama Fobisia Festival at BIS in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The festival took place from 5th – 8th February and included an exciting range of workshops covering Musical Theatre, Using Silence, Improvisation and Devising.

We also got to visit the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Show where we saw puppets magically performing on… yes you guessed it, water! It was amazing and none of us could work out how the puppets were controlled.

The festival culminated on Saturday the 8th when the groups showed their devised pieces to a large audience. Considering the limited amount of time the groups had to create, rehearse and stage each devised pieces, the standard was truly excellent.

We are all looking forward to the next Drama Fobisia in… Manila!
