Reflections on The Drama Studio with Guest Artist, Noa Rotem

Internationally acclaimed performer and theatre-maker, Ms Noa Rotem, was engaged to work with a select group of 18 girls in Years 10 to 12 across five workshops in The Drama Studio.

Focusing on physicality as a means to create meaning in performance, Noa’s sensitive and explorative workshops challenged the girls to find new ways to engage an audience with heightened awareness of their body as a primary tool for communication.

The feedback from the girls who participated was overwhelming positive in the final session, which also celebrated Noa’s birthday. There was not a dry eye in the room as the girls thanked Noa for her extraordinary guidance and expertise over the course of the programme.

Their testimonies speak for themselves:

‘There are no words to describe Ms Rotem’s workshops other than magical. Her teaching techniques engage the students and allow them to feel comfortable, while being challenged at the same time.’
– Sophie Hillier (10L)

‘I am proud of the relationships I have formed with other students across different year levels in The Drama Studio. Our connection provides us with a safe space where we can express our feelings, thoughts and emotion through practical drama workshops. I would encourage all students to give it a go.’
– Maria Stavrianos (12E)
