Making connections in Year 10

Last semester, the Year 10 Drama students (Kiera Edelstein, Dari Justin, Kayla Pizzo and Jules Salter) developed a performance as part of the Drama Victoria ‘Connections Festival’. This festival is committed to connecting Victorian secondary Drama students with the artworks, ideas, and messages of First Nations artists. The performance they developed was presented in our Theatrette as part of Reconciliation Week last semester. Leading up to this presentation the students were engaged in a range of play making activities to create this original dramatic work which was based on the artwork of a Warumungu and Arrernte artist – Christinaray Weetra. Her painting ‘Shades’ became the inspiration for this performance which explores the many complex messages and themes layered in the painting.
