Sport for Jove and Seymour Centre present

HSC Symposium Series

12 Mar - 20 Nov 2020

“You made a difficult play accessible and meaningful to students in a short space of time. I will certainly be making a booking for next year’s HSC group.”

Teacher, Marian College

 

Led by Sport for Jove artistic director Damien Ryan, and featuring a cast of company actors, Sport for Jove’s HSC symposiums offer essential opportunities to deepen your students’ practical understanding through experiencing and analysing key scenes and characters in performance.

 

Lectures and performed scenes are interspersed with expert commentary from Damien Ryan and his team. Together they will explore famous scenes and speeches in multiple ways, open up diverse critical readings, unlock language and character, discuss the famous ambiguities and challenges of each play and answer student questions.

 

Each symposium is a hands-on experience that ensures students are ‘watching with understanding’ and extracting the key ingredients and critical thinking required to write on the plays under exam conditions. Don’t miss out!

 

Detailed student notes are offered with each symposium.
