Performing Arts At Bucks Tonight

All in the best possible taste
This week at Bucks you can see two plays being performed, Fugee by Aby Morgan on March 24 at 7.30pm in the The Courtyard Theatre  (also playing on Thursday 26 March at 7.30pm in the BNU Drama Studio 1). The second play is Pornography by Simon Stephens, playing on Tuesday 24 March, at 7.30pm in BNU Drama Studio 1 (and also on 25 March at 7.30pm in The Courtyard Theatre). Both the plays will cost our students just £2 to attend - less than the price of a large cappuccino. So why should animation students go and see plays? Well, apart from the entertainment, it's all about the talent.

One of the best things about studying at Bucks is the wealth of talent we have across media disciplines. But how do you identify and find that talent?  The best way to find it is to see it in action. Finding great actors to collaborate with is the best way to raise your game and improve the quality of your own work.

Any animator making a short film will likely need help from actors and performers for voice-over work. You might need some motion capture work done, and in this case you need actors who are good at physical performances.

You may need sound designers, camera people for your live action work - all sorts of media collaborations are possible (and encouraged).

So go along to see the plays at Bucks, and bookmark the performing arts blog (you can find it here) to keep an eye on what is coming up in the near future.
