Queen Elizabeth College
Art form: Theatre
Project name: This is us
Creative name: David Ladderman
Project information: “This is us” will engage the Drama ākonga at Queen Elizabeth College in the creation, rehearsal, and performance of a new play. The playwriting process will be driven by the students as they are encouraged to discuss concepts, feelings, and experiences as individuals at Queen Elizabeth College. Students will be supported emotionally and socially as they celebrate their individual cultures and their own personal connections to the QEC community. Our creative will work alongside the ākonga to create a script inspired by the students, using their own words wherever possible. Students will feel safe to creatively express themselves in a positive environment nurtured by the kaiako and creative. The play will be performed for whānau and community members celebrating the mana of Queen Elizabeth College.
Project starting: February 2022
