    THEMES

    BULLERS WOOD SCHOOL, Bromley, Kent
    "Waves of Time"

      'Waves of Time' explores the representation of women and the sea through the ages. Early mythological impressions of mermaids and sirens are superseded by historical records from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries depicting volatile female pirates, to documented acts of bravery by women at sea in the nineteenth century and finally to our present day heroines of the Royal Navy.

    COX GREEN SCHOOL, Maidenhead, Berkshire
    "The Hiding"

      What hides in a child's drawing? A child's escape from reality...A mother's excuses...A father who drinks away his sorrows...why? In the battleground of domestic violence, we explore the ways in which a child learns to cope with the truth. One in three of us will experience violence in the home. It is time to stop hiding.

    LYTCHETT MINSTER SCHOOL, Lytchett Minster, Dorset
    "We Don't Stop At Our Skin"

      The human body is an extraordinary machine it is associated with six stages of transformation, birth, growth, change, evolution, death and destruction. What if cancer became involved in this process? How hard do your body parts have to work to fight this unstoppable force? Delve inside the body and watch the systematic breakdown of a life.

    THE MOUNTBATTEN SCHOOL, Romsey, Hampshire
    "Blissless Ignorance"

      Within 24 hours, deforestation releases as much CO2 into the atmosphere as 8 million people flying across the Atlantic. Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment, including the loss of habitat for millions of species. We invite you into our world to witness the life and spirit being drained from a once-flourishing existence. Are you pleading Blissless Ignorance?

    PRIESTLANDS SCHOOL, Lymington, Hampshire
    "Uncle Ernie's"

      Our performance is set in the 1920's and based around a speakeasy "Uncle Ernie's". A speakeasy was an establishment that illegally sold alcohol during the Prohibition. Despite alcohol being banned in America, the law was blatantly violated. With Charleston routines and flapper dresses, we hope to have captured this era in what may have been a very corrupt time.

    RAVENS WOOD SCHOOL, Bromley, Kent
    "The Master of Disaster!"

      With widespread fanaticism, ignorance and denial regarding climate change, we pose the question: has mankind put the Earth on a path to ultimate extinction? The movie screen forces us to face our demons with films such as 2012, but what is the reality? At the 11th hour will we all wish we had a remote control with a rewind button?

    RYDE HIGH SCHOOL, Ryde, Isle of Wight
    "The Darkness Binds Them"

      The desire for the Ring of Power, that Frodo must destroy, is turning Gollum against himself and changing him into a monster. Gollum tempts Frodo into the spider's lair and leads him through the Valley of the Orcs in hope of retrieving what once was his. Although they are battling for opposing causes the Ring of 'The Darkness Binds Them'.

    SANDOWN HIGH SCHOOL, Sandown, Isle of Wight
    "Dark hour of reason"

      Bruno, an inquisitive boy, adventurer lost, bored! His power hungry father's no suitable idol for Bruno and his intrigue gets the better of him. Although warned by his mother, he's determined to discover life beyond the fence. As his mind wonders, so does he. Face-to-face with innocence, friendship and inhumanity, will his naivety lead to devastation? Or will justice prevail?

    SOUTH DOWNS COLLEGE, Waterlooville, Hampshire
    "Feeding the addiction"

      In our dance Dracula is seen as a threat to society who turns the pure into voracious predators. To represent drug addiction we have used vampirism as a metaphor. Our piece illustrates the agony of those suffering the effects of drug addiction. We have depicted drug use as the predator Dracula who feeds on the vitality of others.

    ST SAVIOUR'S PRIMARY SCHOOL, Totland, Isle of Wight (showcasing Junior Rock Challenge®)
    "Noah... a man of faith"

      In God's world people didn't care about God or the way he wanted them to live. He had to make a fresh start. Noah was the one good man, he listened carefully and did exactly as God said. Today it is sometimes difficult to stand up for what we believe - to resist peer pressure and listen to God's word.

    THE WAVELL SCHOOL, Farnborough, Hampshire
    "Beautiful Blue"

      Half the Earth is covered by unexplored ocean even the parts we know about still have their secrets. Scientists have identified 1.4 million species on earth, believing 10-30 million remain unidentified in the oceans! We need to fish, but, excessive fishing methods need to be curbed and pollution must stop, so the oceans can remain vibrant, beautiful places.

    YATELEY SCHOOL, Yateley, Hampshire
    "Wonka's World"

      Five golden ticket winners enter Wonka's World. Due to their greed and selfishness one by one they disappear in the Chocolate, Inventing, Quality Control, and TV rooms. Only one ticket winner remains. He begins to restore the magic of the chocolate factory, leaving Grandpa Jo to watch in amazement!
