This week, 14 enthusiastic Year 10 Drama students immersed themselves in a day-long artist-in-residence workshop with Clint Bolster from Homunculus Theatre Company. Throughout the day, students honed their skills in the 500 year old Italian masked comic tradition of Commedia Dell ‘Arte, which will assist with their upcoming ensemble assessment. Students were impressed with the talent and knowledge that Clint imparted. His company works in professional acting, clowning, stilt and mask performance across Australia and Europe, in festivals, schools and theatres. Clint is also one of the chosen Australian clown performers for the renowned company Cirque Du Soleil, so we are very fortunate to have built a connection with him.

Homunculus Theatre Company will be returning in September to perform ‘The Spirit of The Mask’ to Year 8 students. We can’t wait to see the show!
