What's New?

AUDITIONS!
Update your calendar! Auditions for DSHK Company will be held on the 7th of September, followed by a specialised workshop and a meet and greet session for parents and students!
A Brand New Curriculum.
Autumn 2018 brought with it a brand new curriculum designed to provide our students with all the essential skills to become truly great theatre makers. Every week we will present a series of concentrated workshops. These workshops are broken into three key areas, namely theatre history, practical performance arts and theatre creation. Each of these is further broken down into key areas of study. Our aim is to provide our students with a broad base of theoretical knowledge, but more importantly, the means to apply this knowledge practically.

Here's what Autumn 2019 has in store

Showcase

During the term, students will be given the opportunity to showcase their talents in a professional theatre in front of a live audience. This showcase will be made up of monologues, short scenes and pieces of devised theatre that our students will create all by themselves. On top of that, students will also have a second opportunity present their own, original content in the MacAulay Studio in the Hong Kong Arts Centre in November as part of a brand new initiative hosted by Starlit Voice. That’s right, two whole performance opportunities!

World Class Workshops

Our curriculum is designed in such a way that students will constantly be exposed to new and exciting theatre experiences. Every week will see students learning key elements of performance and theatre creation and classes will be lead by our highly experienced group of professional theatre makers.

LAMDA Exam

Students will also have the option of taking part in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts Examination in December. This ensures that each students walk away with an internationally recognized performance qualification and what’s better than having a certificate with your name on it? 

A Choice

As students will be taking part in a showcase, they will be charged with the responsibility of devising their own performances. As such, students will be given the choice between a play or musical theatre. Once they have made their choices, they will receive specialist help and advice from our team of professionals on their journey towards creating their show.

The Audition

Students registering for DSHK are not required to take part in an audition for entry into the Company. However, students will be auditioned as part of the process to gauge ability and experience. We use this process to assess the material that will be given to each individual student and it’s a great way for students to experience auditioning first hand. The audition will be a very simple and straight forward process; on the 7th of September, students will be required to take part in an audition workshop where they will work along with other students and practitioners to perform a series of devised pieces of theatre. As with our previous auditions, students will also be required to prepare a second piece which, in short, can be anything. This piece can be anything from a song which you either sing or play on an instrument that you are good at. Or it could be something you've written, perhaps a piece of prose or a poem or even a bit of a play. You could also perform a piece of choreography. Basically, the second piece is all you. We want to see what you can do and what you can bring to the table.

The Course

DSHK Company is a creative theatre company for talented young performers ages 10 - 18. At DSHK performers can continue their journey with the performing arts and take their passion and talent to the next level. DSHK focuses on the core disciplines found in professional actor training, incorporating acting, vocal training and movement. We also aim to develop creative artists that understand all aspects of performance and production, and DSHK’s unique approach to training ensures that members will also be introduced to the fundamentals of stage management as well as other creative areas such as lighting design, sound design and set design.

Why It's Unique

Entry to DSHK Company is by audition and only the most committed and passionate of young performers are invited to become a company member. To ensure that each individual is given the room to grow and develop to their full potential, we only accept a maximum of twenty-four people into the company at any one time.
