In March, the Senior Creative Arts, Art and Drama Students travelled to partake, watch and experience the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Students were exposed to multi art experiences ranging from dance, immersive drama, one man shows, improvised Shakespeare, art deco collections and circus.

We also had the opportunity to visit Rising Sun Animation Studios and look into the impressive and  and exciting world of digital theatre.

A group of students were given a tour of Flinders University and also Void Film Studio and another group of students were able to tour the Arts Gallery and enjoy a professional still life anatomy drawing. On our way home, we all had the opportunity to build with clay and make a mess on the pottery wheel.

See what some of our Arts students thought about their trip away:

“I enjoyed getting to be part of a show. There was no judgement, everyone was given an opportunity to participate and it was a fun experience.”

“I really enjoyed the variety of shows. The interactive aspects were exciting and the trip helped me think about my future and reconsider my pathway, maybe now into Arts.”

“The tour of Flinders helped open up the options of my future pathway. I really enjoyed all of the shows and it was great to see such variety.”

“We liked the variety of shows, and watching performances that we wouldn’t necessarily choose to watch ourselves. The drawing workshop was very informative, and will be beneficial in later assignments.”

“My favourite part of the camp was the Shakespeare performance, it was humorous and was very audience involved. Another part I enjoyed was the acrobatic performance as it was very eye catching and had an interesting storyline.”

“I enjoyed the accommodation, there were many options for entertainment during our downtime. As for the events we visited, my favourites’ were completely improvised Shakespeare, Run, and the interactive performance. Bounce and the visit to Rundle Mall were also nice.”
