Highlights from Teresa…Posted: Wednesday 29 June 2011
Hi everyone! We’ve been so busy touring regional South Australia and New South Wales, and loving every minute. Here are some recent highlights from me!
The players spent a day at Gosford High recently and ran a workshop with the Year 12 students on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night! Their creativity and performances blew us away! They related the text to all the modern issues of gender in our society today. My favourite moments were possibly the love scene they chose to perform on top of the grand piano and their tableaux representation of the play’s ‘love triangle’ as a human pyramid!! I was of course requested to be on top!!
We just performed and worked with the students at Marree in central South Australia. As none of us are from Sydney originally we all love our AFL and so Miss Jakovich couldn’t leave town without performing a drop-kick at the local footy ground ‘ the MCG’! Thanks Marree, we had an amazing day!!
We performed Shakespeare amongst the rocket ships in Woomera today, the famous town in S.A. Not only were the students really fun and brave playing fairies, Dukes and donkeys but tourists who use to live in the area 40yrs ago wandered in to watch us perform. Keep up the good work Woomera, you have a town to he proud of.
