    THEMES

    ALDWORTH SCIENCE COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
    "The Circus of Life"

      Join the circus like you wanted to...The circus life should be one of expression not suppression, but we invite you to take a look behind the big top...The clowns are sad, the acrobats are fragile, animals are caged and the freaks are isolated. Help us to break down the metaphorical cages and celebrate the uniqueness of being ME!

    CAROLINE CHISHOLM SCHOOL, Northampton
    "The Butterfly Effect"

      In a world of decision and consequence, one action can cause repercussions that affect all. The Butterfly Effect explains how a small action like the flutter of a butterfly's wings can create a tsunami across the other side of the world. One small decision can lead to drastically different outcomes, as one girl discovers as she chooses her route home.

    ITCHEN COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Hell and High Water"

      Hurricane Katrina formed over the Bahamas on August 23, 2005 and crossed southern Florida, causing deaths and flooding, before strengthening rapidly and making a second landfall 6 days later in Southeast Louisiana. The most severe loss of life occurred in New Orleans. This performance shows a personal account of how Hurricane Katrina caused devastation for one family.

    THE OXFORD ACADEMY, Oxford, Oxfordshire
    "Following the Leader?"

      A man who does not think for himself does not think at all". Our Performance explores peer pressure and going with the pack without having any personal moral boundaries. Through the dance we examine the disastrous consequences that can occur when we 'follow the leader'.

    REDBRIDGE COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "One Voice In A Crowd Of Sorrow"

      World War Two infected humanity with agony, separation, loss and despair. Hitler's Blitz brought the nation to its knees. But the residents of London would not be broken. We aim to show that despite such terrible adversity, hope, love and resilience can emerge, albeit futile and short-lived.
      "Never was so much owed by so many to so few".

    SIR JOHN COLFOX SCHOOL, Bridport, Dorset
    "Age Discrimination"

      It's told that this world stereotypes people into groups and these groups don't listen to one another. It's said that the elderly are decrepit and grumpy, and children and teenagers are always drunk and disrespectful...but is this really the truth? Our performance shows that everyone has a story to tell and each story is worth listening to.

    SOLENT MIDDLE SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
    "Back to the Future 4 - Fun and Games"

      Marty McFly is about to test Doc Brown's latest invention, "The Games Console Time Machine." Marty will re-experience the games of his childhood: Pacman, Slinky, Space-hoppers and Rubik's Cube! Like all Doc's inventions, it's unreliable. The fustrum battery power-interconnect keeps cutting out and the temporal memory realizer gets very confused. But will that stop them? See for yourself...

    SWANMORE COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Peter Pan in Technoland"

      Explore technology through the story of Peter Pan. Laptops, cameras, mobiles and MP3s have control of Captain Hook and his pirates in Technoland, losing the sense of friendship, and talking face to face. Peter Pan and the Tinkerbells take us on a journey to show that although we are a global world of technology, we are also one of friendship.

    WILDERN SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "The Last Rainforest"

      The piece takes us into the rainforest, a place of peace and harmony where all creatures co-exist together. The tranquillity is destroyed by man and one single act of carelessness, the striking of a match, leads to irreversible damage. We have a responsibility to ensure we look after the rainforest for many generations to come.
