HSC Symposium Series

24 May - 3 July 2018

“I couldn't recommend them more highly.”

Head Teacher English, Castle Hill High School

 

Sport For Jove’s acclaimed intensive HSC Symposium Series returns in 2018 with detailed analysis and performance work on Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Richard III, The Tempest, Henry IV and The Crucible.

 

Scene work from the plays is interspersed with expert commentary from Damien Ryan and his team; exploring famous scenes and speeches in multiple ways, opening up diverse critical readings, unlocking language and 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.

 

Every aspect of the work is geared toward the curriculum and the specific needs of students studying these plays. Detailed student notes are also offered with these Symposiums but there are limited seats, don’t miss out.

 

In 2018, Sport For Jove are adding a Production Elements Symposium introducing students to the technical and production elements of A Midsummer Night’s Dream including costume, lighting, staging and more.
