2024 is the year to Shake Fest! For over a decade Shake Fest has provided a unique opportunity for students across Queensland to focus their artistic abilities in an all-inclusive creative celebration of the works of William Shakespeare. Shake Fest dynamically connects students, schools, and industry through Shakespeare.
Presented by Shake & Stir and Kingston Butter Factory.
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: Get inspired and enrol your school via
Logan Arts booking form
STEP 2: Get creating!
Once teachers have enrolled their school, students can select from the different categories to prepare their own take on Shakespeare’s work! A collection of online resources are available to help with the development process.
Categories include: Monologue, Duologues, Scenes, Dance, Music, Design, Photography, Film
STEP 3: Local Showcase
Participants are invited to an evening at the Kingston Butter Factory, showcasing performance work and exhibiting design, photography and film entries for friends and family. Entries will be filmed at showcase and submitted for feedback.
STEP 4: Industry Feedback
Once reviewed, your students will receive feedback on their submissions to help them on their creative journey. Selected students will be invited to the State Showcase in Brisbane at the beginning of Term 4, allowing them time to adapt their piece for final performance and display.
STEP 5: Show and celebrate!
The State Showcase is our two-day extravaganza to applaud Queensland student’s creative work. It begins with a full day of free workshops where students can hone their skills and forge friendships with like-minded students across the state. The following day, participants will showcase their work for a public audience.
