Sadako and the thousand paper cranes drama workshop

Today we had an awesome visitor from the West End drama studio!

Reflecting on the storystill images

The moment Sadako looked up into the skies as there was a bright light which illuminated the sky of Hiroshima.

When Sadako sees her desolated home in Hiroshima.

Ten year old Sadako, realising she was covered in spots and falling ill.

A moment where Sadako was determined to create her 2000 cranes when feeling very unwell in hospital.

My favourite part was the warm up where go means walk and stop means stop and we had to do poses of Sadako’s emotions.
