Macbeth Incursion

The Australian Shakespeare Company

Macbeth Macbeth Macbeth

"Thanks for your great work last week it exceeded expectations! There has been a transformation in the way in which the class is responding to the play. No longer are they simply reading words from the page, they are far more engaged in the play itself!"
BOB HILLMAN, TRINITY GRAMMAR SCHOOL

Our teachers and students were enormously impressed by the standard of acting as well as the way the scenes were selected and analysed.
JANET STRACHAN, HEAD OF LITERATURE, HAILEYBURY

The Australian Shakespeare Company’s theatre education program offers Australia’s most extensive and dynamic line-up of in-school workshops and incursions: available both live and live-streamed online!

Macbeth Incursion
Through the performance and discussion of key scenes, our Macbeth session focuses on the supernatural versus the psychological, the relationship and power dynamic between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as it shifts and disintegrates, morality and ambition, the nature of guilt and horror of time.

Our Focus:
CONNECT with the characters through robust performances delivered by seasoned actors or the students themselves.
COMPREHEND the context of the play, the themes and meaning of the text using active rehearsal room techniques.
APPRECIATE the brilliance of the writing through analysis on the form, features and structure.
EXPRESS as creators when directing and performing scenes and through personal, analytical and creative writing.
INSPIRE the next generation with the timeless wisdom of classic literature and the ultimate life education it contains.

Our Incursion Program provides an explosive exploration of the works of Shakespeare. Catering to students of English and Drama, an ensemble of company actors travel through the story of the play performing pivotal scenes along the way with passionate, in depth discussions about the world of the play, historical context, characters, themes, contemporary relevance and language styles.
