Sport for Jove Theatre Company presents

HSC Symposium Series 2017

16 May - 23 June

Sport For Jove’s acclaimed intensive HSC Symposiums are back. In 2017 join Damien Ryan, one of Australia’s leading directors and educators, and his team, for detailed analysis and performance work on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Richard III, The Tempest and Henry IV Part I.

 

This year we are including a new addition, The Crucible Symposium, drawn from Sport For Jove’s hugely acclaimed 2015 production of The Crucible.

 

Scene work from the HSC syllabus plays is interspersed with expert commentary — exploring famous scenes & speeches in multiple ways, opening up diverse critical readings, unlocking language & character, hearing actors discuss the plays’ famous ambiguities and challenges, and answering students’ questions.

 

A complete, hands-on experience that combines the unfiltered relationship students need with the plays’ action and narrative while also ensuring they are ‘watching with understanding’, in other words, extracting the key ingredients and critical thinking required to write on the plays under exam conditions.

 

These symposiums have become a critical experience for thousands of students tackling these complex plays in the HSC and ensures they are watching with understanding.

 

Detailed student notes are also offered with these Symposiums but there are limited seats, don’t miss out.
