School Incursions

The Merchant of Venice

Melbourne 

About the incursion

Travelling through the narrative of the Merchant of Venice, this session sees our actors give powerful and memorable performances of key scenes and speeches that specifically give insight into the anomalies and paradoxes in human behaviour. We investigate the motivations of the central characters by putting them on trial. Students experience the lens of both traditional and contemporary performance contexts.

Focus

  • Racial Prejudice
  • The Cyclical Nature of Hatred
  • Self-Interest and Commodity
  • The Law
  • Mercy and Justice
