This course includes a free viewing of archival footage from the 2016 production and a detailed student handout including all workshop activities and supplementary information.
In the session, students will be involved in viewing archival footage followed by discussion and practical exploration through improvisation and scene work exercises. Students will gain a deeper dramaturgical understanding of the relationships within the text, examining the psychology and objectives the characters. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on a range of directorial approaches available to them in their own theatre making as well as those made by Cathy Hunt in the 2016 production. The style, structure and conventions of the play will be addressed within the theoretical framework of the HSC Essay.
"The way we broke down the play into scenes to analyse concepts of 'Life Without Me' was really helpful and engaging"
Leonardo, HSC Student Karabar High School
"This workshop gave students a chance to engage in the play in a way that is not readily available to most regional students.
What a great opportunity!"
