The 2018 Sydney Eisteddfod offers performance opportunities for aspiring thespians to perform together as a Duo or Trio in the Duologue or Trio events for age groups 18 & under, 14 & under and 11 & under.
In each of these events, participants can perform their own choice of 1 or more items in costume (check the event details page for performance time limits).
Lyn Pierse, adjudicator for the 2017 Duologue or Trio (18 & Under) event, says that young actors can learn a variety of skills from participating in Sydney Eisteddfod's events for Duologues and Trios.
"Good acting demands listening, responding, being changed by and working with the other actor.
"Living in the moment, telling the story, conveying truthful, grounded characters, claiming the dialogue with vocal freedom and precision, communicating status transitions through clear physical changes while bouncing off another person, are the skills and challenges of the Duologue or Trio Speech and Drama event.
"When these combine with concentration, focus, fun and hard work the results are thrilling” Lyn said.
