Musicophilia (2011)

In 2011, a group of second year students on the Circus Arts and Acting degree programmes at National Centre for Circus Arts and RADA spent a week together working with the text ‘Musicophilia’ by Oliver Sacks. The students worked initially at RADA and for the second half of the week moved to the National Centre for Circus Arts. Directed by Nona Shepphard, Associate Director at RADA, they put together a collaborative performance captured in the videos below.

A section of this work was shown at the Conservatoire’s Anniversary Gala in May 2011 – our first performer-performer artistic collaboration.
