In the build up to 2016's Bury Festival, a team of young critics have been developing their skills in art criticism and creative writing in order to come and review 3 performances in the Festival.
Year 5 students from Woolpit Primary Academy have been taking part in Creative Critics: Seeing, Doing, Knowing, directed by Christina Birt Projects and delivered in collaboration with Company of Angels.
We were delighted to be able to team up with the Bury Free Press who selected a couple of reviews for each show to print. You can also read all the reviews for each show in full – just click the links below:
The Rattler: A Tale of Rumplestiltskin
Aurora Orchestra: Beethoven 5 from Memory
Protein Dance: May Contain Food
With special thanks to all our young reviewers:
Caydie Orr, Leah Smallbone, Molly Brown, Molly Dixon, Ruby Williams, Oliver H, Dylan Everett, Kadence Cartwright & Kiera Hunt
