st patricks strathfield

Today I ran an all day workshop for St Patricks year 10 & 11 drama students.  Noel Nassar, Head of Drama brought me in for the IP & GP workshop which took the students through:

Individual Performance

  • sourcing and selecting an appropriate script
  • script analysis and exploration
  • character exploration
  • eliminating nerves in performance

Group Performance

  • Finding a great idea
  • Exploring possibilities
  • Brain storming techniques
  • Acting verses demonstrating

It was a great day and the feedback from the students was that it had been a fun filled, practical workshop that had definitely increased their chances of succeeding in their IP & GP projects.  It's rare I get to work with an all boys group and it was a pleasure to see such a strong united group who were so open and supportive of each other.
