Making magic… – how the Auditorium Tech & Backstage Team helped realise the vision for ISL’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream production
Design skills brought to the fore as we develop rounded storytelling techniques.
In this unit, Year 11 drama students learnt the skills of a specific theatrical design role and then collaboratively designed the world for a performance of a short story.
Students could be a sound, lighting, set, or costume designer. They researched and presented on the key skills of this role and then worked collaboratively to identify their directorial intentions and audience impacts. Students took their design role and outlined, refined and finalised design decisions to create tension, emotion atmosphere and/ or meaning in their performance.
