On Friday, Oct 12, we had a visit from one of our alumni, Alex Grubbs (’08). ¬†Alex and his wife Bonnie (who is receiving the distinguished Young Alumni award from Belhaven this fall) now live in NYC after completing their masters educations, Bonnie in Education at Mary Baldwin College and Alex in Acting from the University of Virginia.

Alex led a workshop of students combined from several classes in exercises in Devised Theatre Рa process of collaborative creation for works of theatre.  After some brief introductory exercises and discussions, students developed short works based on personal stories of their fellow classmates, then combined those individual pieces into group performances.
