ISTA Twilight workshops for teachers and students

Twilight workshops are intensive three-hour sessions held in the evening at a specific host school, but open to any schools in that city.

The Diploma Twilight focuses on one key assessment task from the Diploma Programme Theatre course, unpacking it in depth and detail.  The workshop leader will be an examiner in that specific assessment task and so they will be able to bring their unique insight and experience to the workshop.  Uniquely, these workshops are an opportunity for teachers and students to work alongside each other as they develop their knowledge and understanding of how to achieve task mastery.

This Twilight will focus on the Solo theatre project, the DP Theatre HL assessment task.

Solo theatre piece (HL)

This workshop will focus on the HL-only task, the Solo Theatre Piece. We will unpack the task requirements and criteria using a senior examiner’s insight, ensuring teachers and students have total confidence in how to approach the task, choose a suitable theorist, structure the report, and avoid the pitfalls that can hinder progress. We will practically explore “aspects” in order to better understand the term, and we’ll also apply theory to text – building towards a brief performative outcome that can be used to hone our excellent evaluative comments. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions: students can inquire as to how they might prepare a specific idea; teachers can seek guidance on how they may plan their own unit.
