MTC 2013 Summer School


This course has been designed to focus on preparing students for VCE Drama and Theatre Studies. Adopting a practical approach, participants will work with teaching artists to explore techniques for creating non-naturalistic ensemble and solo performances, text-based monologues and the analysis of live theatre performance. The teaching artists in 2013 are Meg Upton and Emily Taylor.

Working at an MTC theatre space, students will be introduced to a range of playmaking, rehearsal, development and dramaturgical techniques that address devised and scripted works, and also explore elements of production and design for the theatre. These processes will guide their preparation for VCE Drama and Theatre Studies coursework and assessment tasks.

The group will attend a performance of War Horse at 1.00pm on Wednesday 18 January, at Arts Centre Melbourne. There will be a late finish at 5.30pm on this day. This production will be used as the basis for exploring performance analysis, and to inform students' own creative work and knowledge.

This course is strictly limited to 26 participants.
