The Scene Project 2017
Date: September 1, 2017 Posted by: Ashlee Hansen
On Thursday 24 August Steve Pirie joined the Year 10 Drama students for The Scene Project drama workshop.
Steve is a youth arts practitioner, writer and theatre maker currently based in Brisbane. Steve is the co-Artistic Director of Mixtape Theatre Collective, a regional independent theatre company in Toowoomba.
Throughout the morning, Steve played ensemble games and got to know the students’ understandings of physical theatre.
The class worked together to beat the teachers in a game of Grandma’s Slippers, and had to give status to inanimate objects on stage.
Students then became sculptors of each other followed by becoming a village of lumberjacks attacked by malicious bears.
Students then workshopped their performance script, created by combining excerpts from Six Hundred Ways to Filter A Sunset, by Daniel Evan.
The theme for the performance script is freedom.
Students had to consider freedom in order to workshop an opening scene to the performance piece.
Students will now prepare for their dress rehearsal performance on Wednesday 18 October at 5pm in the Drama Rooms.
Their final performance to Queensland Theatre and other local schools who are also doing The Scene Project is on Tuesday 24 October at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre.
THANK YOU STEVE!
