Well done Stevie!

Yes, we did it again! We are very pleased to announce that Stevie Thomas, who graduated from the Bucks New Uni Performing Arts course this summer, has been long listed for the National Student Drama Festival. The NSDF is a fiercely competitive event, and it is a real honour that one of our students is considered for it again!
Stevie has been selected with his dissertation piece 1001010, which confronts the nature of performing gender and the restrictions of the gender binary. Coupling verbatim text with elements of physical theatre, the piece explores non-binary and fluid approaches to gender and sees the queer performer question their own identity through the expression of others.

Stevie began performing from a young age at his grandmother's dance school on the Isles of Scilly and has surrounded himself with the arts ever since. becoming an apt Tap and Modern dancer and later enjoying physical theatre during his studies at Bucks New University.
He describes himself as progressive feminist and is an active member of the LGBT+ community.

He is currently setting up a new theatre company and has started writing a script, so watch this space.

Well done Stevie, we are very proud and wish you the best of good luck for the selection process!
