International House resident Louisa Wall has delivered a tremendous stage performance in William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ for the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).
In front of a packed audience on Wednesday 13 April Louisa was Titania, the Queen of the Fairies and a force to be reckoned with in the world of magic. A sassy and flirtatious Titania, the poor old fairy King Oberon was just no match for her.
Acting has been Louisa’s passion since she was young. Born and raised in rural NSW, she moved to Melbourne in 2014 to study at the VCA within the University of Melbourne.
Louisa’s credits at the VCA include Tiresias in ‘Oedipus Rex’ (dir. Melanie Beddie) and Charlotta in ‘The Cherry Orchard’ (dir. Melanie Beddie). She collaborated in the devised work ‘Unplugged’ and performed in Singapore at the 8th Asia-Pacific Bureau Theatre Schools Conference in 2015.
Outside of the VCA Louisa’s credits include Mrs Myers in ‘Fame’ (dir. Freya McGrath/ Hamish Plaggermars) with the International House Theatre Group, Officer in ‘Wash Your Hands’ (dir. David Harris) at Mudfest and stand-up comedy at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2014 and 2015.
Louisa is also a proficient pianist, trained in clarinet and dance and is a recipient of the Clifford Family Scholarship at International House.
