Audiences at the International School of Tianjin felt they, like Alice in Wonderland, had fallen down the rabbit hole, on 17 April. Not knowing what to expect from the IST M.A.D Night – a night of music, art and drama, they were confronted by the unexpected at every turn as they snaked their way through the multiple venues within the school campus on a quest for the best of IST student arts. The night of Music, Art and Drama, hence the M.A.D title, lived up to it’s name, with totally incredible displays of talent.

ist-mad-nightThe night kicked off with the earth shaking beats of the Korean drum troupe. Having raised the audience to fever pitch, the Elementary Choir stepped in to inspire the audience with some beautiful harmonies and foot tapping numbers. At this point the audience was steered towards their fabulous arts tour guides, who took them on an exciting journey through the Han Building in search of dynamic and skilled performers and stimulating arts experiences. They didn’t have to go far. Behind every door was a wildly different performance. ‘The Six’, music ensemble played beautifully and contrasted with the interactive art activity next door, which had the audience drawing each other’s portraits on the library glass. Upstairs, other groups were laughing themselves silly at the antics of the Grade 10 Theatre Sports Team, who improvised highly unlikely scenarios, while back down in the Black Box Theatre the Grade 7H students were educating audiences in the ways of Beijing Opera. Piano recitals and instrumental performers impressed crowds in the music suite and finally, after so much excitement, the audience headed to the Barista to partake in some food and beverages. At this point, the D.P Art Exhibition dazzled them and popular tunes were performed by the student Acoustic Band. Finally, the night closed with a wonderful finale of IST’s Circus performers, Secondary Jazz Choir, Orchestra and the Angel Dance Crew who brought the evening to a climactic BANG!

Audiences now can’t wait for the next M.A.D Night.
