In Performance Project, the emphasis switches to application of skills to performance. Here the emphasis is on opportunities for students to put into practice the craft and methodologies learned in all of their previous studies to create an autonomous personal process that serves the intention of the particular work and is harmonious with the requirements of other creatives such as directors, music directors, choreographers, designers and technicians. Students will be expected to be able to create and fulfil a sustained, psychologically, physically and emotionally cohesive character journey across a whole role, whether acting, singing or dancing and make a positive contribution to ensemble. Key to this will be the ability to work from technical, interpretative and intuitive imperatives and the ability to adapt their process to the divergent requirements of style and genre. Participation in Performance Project may be through standard repertoire or moved/sung readings of a new work. As with all year 3 subjects, a high level of preparation and autonomy is expected, with students exhibiting strong organisational skills and confident application of technical and artistic principles in self-directed work. Students who are streamed into Performance Project B will be involved in principal or supporting roles in a performance project (repertoire or new work) and will be streamed into Music Theatre Combination Class A. They may also be understudies or swings.
