Music with Stephanie
Samantha first attended this year’s Wingara Mura Bunga Burrabagu Summer Program and returned for the Winter Program to help prepare for final exams.
Her passion for music saw her work alongside Sydney-based singer-songwriter and producer Rainbow Chan once again!
She recorded a second song with Rainbow to help develop a portfolio as she plans to study a Bachelor of Contemporary Music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2018.
“Music is my passion and I can’t see myself doing anything else!”

Eye Gouging and Song-writing
In Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear’, Gloucester is dragged into a scene by servants, bound to a chair and the antagonist Cornwall rips each of his eyes out. Without any stage directions, we interpreted from the dialogue to re-enact the famous scene.
Dr Huw Griffiths, our resident Shakespeare expert showed us how the dialogue itself gives clues on how the actors should stage the scene. By re-enacting the scene, the emotions and gore had a greater effect. It was a good lesson on how acting out written texts can build a better understanding of them.
Bob Dylan’s ‘Who Killed Davey Moore’ was the inspiration for the afternoon creative writing session. Matt Roden from the Sydney Story Factory unlocked the inner poetic muso within the students and together they wrote a new ten verse song.
