18 June, Sydney.
Sport for Jove’s initiative to offer a creative platform to Shakespeare enthusiasts in high schools is all set to show itself to the world.
This coming Saturday, the State Carnival will showcase the best of the student pieces developed through this new opportunity to creatively engage with Shakespeare’s works.
All through this term schools around the state have been holding in-school and regional competitions in a range of performance and design categories, and now the finalists are ready for showtime. The evening’s performance is taking place at the Seymour Centre, and is open to the public. You can see tomorrow’s stars in shine in work that has been equal parts challenging, creative and inspiring.
Festival director Chris Tomkinson says, “There are a some wonderful performances and delightful talent on display across all the performance categories of song composition, dance, acting and design. Students have participated from all across the city, from many regions outside of Sydney and as far afield as Armidale.
Participants in the finals come from Wollongong, the Blue Mountains, Armidale and, of course, right across Sydney.”
There is no question the desire and the enthusiasm for such an event has been simmering away just waiting for a team like Sport for Jove to give it an outlet. Congratulations to all the students who took part, and the parents and teachers who supported them, and chookas to the finalists!
Tickets are only $20, you can book them here.
