An incredible opportunity for Year 9 and 10 students and their teachers.
The Drama Victoria Theatre Festival is a revival of the Monash Schools Theatre Festival that seeks to nurture a new and exciting model for teachers and students. We are now entering the third year of this state-wide festival celebrating excellence and diversity in drama. Hundreds of Year 9 and 10 students come together for workshops and performances to create work and share ideas – not to compete, but to explore and learn what drama and performance means to different people.
The 2017 festival will build on the success of the past two years, as we take feedback from returning schools to make this a participant-driven event. We will continue to focus on the creative development of young theatre makers by giving them an opportunity to workshop creative ideas with their peers, learn new ways of approaching performance and, most importantly, to discover new creative perspectives to expand their engagement with drama. Participating students (Year 9/10) and schools will work across the period of the Festival, starting with a series of "stimulus day" workshops in early March held at Monash University. The ideas and skills generated on this stimulus day will be the first step towards creating an original performance work that the students will eventually share in ‘cluster performance groups’ hosted at local school venues towards the end of semester.
