Bard Stars

Bard Stars Captain, Jadzia Clifford-Pugh, spoke about Harristown’s Shakespeare Ensemble run by Lady Kate Walsh and their workshops, where students are immersed in deep learning about the works of William Shakespeare, the characters and ideas. This year one of the Bard Stars, Jacinta Taylor, competed in the Queensland Youth Shakespeare Festival, Shakefest, with a complex short film titled ‘Othello: A Love Story”. She was one of 5500 students from across the state to compete in the festival. At Regionals she went through a gruelling interview, produced a profile which explained her ideas, concepts and creative process and saw her film watched and judged by a panel of theatre professionals.  Jacinta was successful, winning the Film section in the region and making it to the top 153 going to the State Finals.  Her film screened in the foyer of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.  Well done Jacinta.
