Many HSC Drama students, for their Individual Project, will be taking on the challenge of rehearsing and presenting a monologue performance. In this webinar, the Discipline of Theatre and Performance Studies (TaPS) will take you through a concentrated version of the whole process, from selecting a suitable script, to understanding its context within the play, exploring your character’s actions and objectives, getting the words into your body and onto the floor. Theatre director, Jimmy Dalton, and performer, Apsara Lindeman, will workshop a monologue performance, sharing tips and tricks as they go, with a Q&A session led by Senior Lecturer and Chair of TaPS, Dr Paul Dwyer.
Catch up on the topics by watching our webinar recordings. To access the recordings from 2022 and earlier, please visit our Learning Resources page.
