90 Minute Voice, Gesture Movement Workshops
The last two years have been difficult for students in Victoria, with many missing an important period of social and performative skill development. After hearing this feedback from several VCE teachers this year, we have decided to create and offer you a workshop designed to build students confidence in their play-making abilities.
It’s so important when we are learning all the skills around play-making techniques in Units 1 & 2 of Drama/Theatre Studies that we have huge stages of trial and error, collaboration, team feedback; all things that couldn’t occur during lockdown. Our workshop allows students to take away a renewed sense of possibility, and offers a kit bag full of fresh theatre making tools that they can use to create their performance pieces.
Actor $200 + travel time @$30 per hour
