‘Corpus Perspectives’

On Friday the 17th of September, the Year 12 ATAR Dance and Drama students performed at ‘Corpus Perspectives’. Timed to coincide with the Visual Arts, Technology & Enterprise Exhibition ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, this event showcased the wonderful talents of our students across a range of Arts subjects.

The students performed original solos that they had created themselves based around an idea or concept. The ideas explored through the dance pieces and dramatic monologues ranged from the entertaining and fun, to exploring how our world functions, and serious social issues. Performing a solo in front of a large audience is daunting at the best of times, however performing something of your own creation is especially nerve racking due to the ownership you feel over it and fear of the audience’s judgement. All of the performers took on this challenge and did a wonderful job – the Arts staff could not be prouder of them. We’d also like to thank the audience for the support and encouragement they showed to the students.

 This was a major assessment task for all students involved and they were marked on their performance during the evening. The students will perform these solos again as part of their Practical WACE exams which start in the first week of the September holidays. We wish them luck!
