A week of Shakespeare

01 Oct 2019

For a week of September students on semester break learned the ins and outs of Shakespeare at Docklands’ Community Hub.

The Australian Shakespeare Company (ASC) ran workshops on everything from stage combat to the Suzuki method at the Hub from September 23 to 27.

Stefanie Trichardt, a 16-year-old student who took part in the workshops, said she was struck by an ASC production earlier this year.

“During the summer season this year I saw the Australian Shakespeare Company’s production of Macbeth,” she said.

“They call it Shakespeare Under the Stars because it’s held in the Botanical Gardens open air theatre. I thought it was a really great production and I just wanted to be in it or something like it.”

Stefanie said she found the ASC website and enrolled in their school holiday workshops.

Andrew Cullimore from the ASC Education Department said the Docklands Community Hub was a perfect venue.

“Every school holiday break for the past several years the ASC Education Department has run Shakespeare workshops for kids and teenagers,” he said.

“I got the job as education department manager very recently and the first job I was given was to find a good venue for these community-based projects.”

“The Hub is affordable, has good spaces for a small group, and there’s a park next door as well.”
