YSSC Presented An Amazing Arts Showcase …
Yarrabilba State Secondary College held a Performing Arts Showcase last December. It was a delightful program of dance, music, and drama.
The YSSC Theatre Company did a condensed version of Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, turning a tragedy into a comedy.
The students of the College’s iXL Performing Arts Academy choreographed a dance which they performed with students from Yarrabilba State School. There were skits, musical performances and various other dance groups including hip hop.
After the showcase visitors were invited to view an exhibition of artwork by students in the College Resource Centre. It was a visual feast of sculptures made from recycled materials, masks, totems, watercolours, and pop-art.
Grandfather Terry Steele said he especially like the piece, Connection to Country, as it had a lot of meaning and showed that “we look after our people.” Young Eli Devenish liked the Giant Wave which depicted litter being carried on the ocean.
The college’s values of curiosity, collaboration, creativity, connection and courage were all on display in the artwork and performances.
