Delve into the themes, theatrical devices and worlds of Neighbourhood Watch by Lally Katz with Director Sandra Eldridge and Education Manager Alexander Andrews. Watch as a cast of professional actors perform key scenes from the play, while Sandra and Alexander unpack how directorial choices and the Elements of Drama can be used to bring the script to life.
Sandra shares her directorial process and offers a unique insight into the opportunities and challenges of directing Neighbourhood Watch, focusing on theatrical forms such as Epic Theatre and Magical Realism, and the Elements of Production. Alexander draws on his experience as an HSC Drama teacher to discuss how this process can be implemented
in the classroom using the Elements of Drama.
Throughout the seminar, students engage in discussion with the actors and creatives, allowing them to ask questions that support their study of Neighbourhood Watch and give them insight into Australian Theatre.
