Sport for Jove Theatre presents
“You made a difficult play accessible and meaningful to students in a short space of time. I will certainly be making a booking for next year’s HSC group.” – Teacher, Marian College
Sport for Jove’s HSC Symposiums are essential opportunities to deepen your student’s practical understanding of HSC texts.
Presented as a lecture interspersed with scene work and expert commentary from Sport for Jove’s Artistic Director Damien Ryan and his team, these symposiums will help you and your students explore famous scenes and speeches in multiple ways, open up diverse critical readings, and unlock language and character. You will also get the opportunity to hear professional actors discuss the ambiguities and challenges of each of the plays, and answer your students’ questions.
These symposiums are a complete, hands-on experience of the plays’ action and narrative. Sport for Jove extracts the key ingredients and critical thinking required to write on the plays under exam conditions. Every aspect of the work is geared toward the curriculum and the specific needs of students studying these plays.
FYI full teaching resources will be available for all bookings and detailed student notes are also offered with the symposiums. We recommend that you bring your lunch to eat during interval.
