Year 12 Ensemble Performance
"Stop it, you’re being hysterical!", the year 12 Ensemble performance, was presented on Tuesday 21st March to an audience of friends, family and teachers.
As part of their Unit 3 assessment, the students created original performances in the style of Bertolt Brecht’s Epic Theatre and Jerzy Grotowski’s Poor Theatre. They investigated the radio play ‘War of the Worlds’ and its reception, mass hysteria throughout history and the effect of fake news. After gathering this informing, the students worked together for 6 weeks to refine and rehearse scenes that communicated their point of view on current and historical events.
The students involved included: Hannah Alivis, Ali Badzak, Berrin Bektas, Phoenix Brown, Eirene Carli, Mitchell Eilers, Rohan McKenna, Ruby Murdoch and Jack O’Connor. The students performed very successfully, leaving the audience impressed and entertained!
