Over the last few weeks, the grade 10 drama class has been exploring Shakespeare’s sonnets. They are developing their own performance concepts and devising individual performances of their selected sonnet, which will be filmed and screened.
In addressing why Shakespeare’s work is still considered relevant 500 years after writing, students are taking multiple roles of dramaturge, director and actor.
Preparatory work, including mood and story boards, will be exhibited, and along with the finished films, will form the basis of student audience discussion. The final screening and discussion is non-ticketed and open to all.
