Water in the Desert

Congratulation to Mia Seesink 9B, Constanca Gois 7E, Naiya Watts 7E and Sarah Harkat 7C for their performance in the Water in the Desert at The Arts Center New York University Abu Dhabi last week. This was a project by the British Arts Council and The Ministry of Tolerance UAE. BIS Abu Dhabi students worked with Cranleigh School and a team of world class professionals from the UK to devise an original piece of operatic theatre in celebration of the Year of Zayed. Themed Water in the Desert: A Zayed Legacy it was based on the late Sheikh Zayed’s foresight into the importance of environmental conservation and his vision for a greening of the desert.

BIS Abu Dhabi dance students were amazing, they excelled with energy, grace a precision. Their performance was captivating and as lead teacher for Dance it was a ‘very proud moment’.
