Nescot students dance to Carmina Burana

Nescot’s Performing Arts second year students took on the task of performing one of the world’s most recognised pieces of classical music in December to support the work of World Aids Day and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

Every day for the past 30 years a performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana has taken place somewhere in the world and on Wednesday 1st December it was the turn of Nescot.

The students choreographed the opera with dance tutors Gillian Hipp and Jamie Roberts, using contemporary dance and physical theatre techniques; the result, a powerful and dramatic performance inspired by the spread, transmission and stereotyped misconceptions about the HIV virus.

All proceeds from the performance were donated to the Terrence Higgins Trust.
