Seasons’ Change At The Lemon Tree

Pupils and staff had an amazing time performing our unique sensory piece ‘Season’s Change’, created in collaboration with Aberdeen Performing Arts, at the Lemon Tree earlier this month.  We would once again like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported us and joined in the fun.

We were fortunate enough to have had a professional photographer there documenting the evening and we are delighted to share their images with you.

Seasons’ Change At The Lemon Tree

Last night a group of pupils from across the school performed their piece, Seasons’ Change in the Lemon Tree Studio as part of Aberdeen Performing Arts ‘Light The Blue’ festival.

The pupils (along with some friends who unfortunately couldn’t make the performance) and staff members have worked extremely hard throughout a series of workshops in school, where we worked collaboratively with Kate from Aberdeen Performing Arts, class teacher Jessica and Emmeline our music therapist, in order to create our final performance.

There has been lots of fun along the way as everyone fully engaged their senses to develop a piece of drama which allowed the cast members and audience to move through the seasons.  We used a wide range of stimuli and there were lots of surprises along the way.

All of the pupils were a true credit to themselves and the school in last night’s performance and the audience’s participation was fantastic.  We are so proud of everyone involved and would like to thank them all for all their hard work and effort in performing a truly magical and unique performance.
