So many of the 2021 Competition Finalists joined us in Wellington for the National Festival this year! From participating in Workshops to being inspired by their fellow student’s performances the National Festival is full of exciting opportunities for our Allied Competition students too!

“I got the privilege to act as the Student Costumier for all three plays performed [at NSSP], and although my placement in the group was to construct and design the costumes, the spirit and passion from the team of actors, made me feel comfortable and encouraged to get involved with the acting and performing side of the production workshops. My relationship with the directors blossomed all throughout the week, we all both bounced off each other with ideas and firm creative collaboration was sustained. I loved working with them as they always encouraged my sometimes unusual ideas, and gave me the time to reflect on the development process of the costumes whenever necessary. I was overjoyed with the finished product with all the costume in all plays, I realised all the late nights and scrounging for materials had paid off!” – Duncan Lamont Brown, 2009 SGCNZ/Bernina Shakespeare Costume Design Competition Supreme  Winner.
