Little y Theatre Workshops run for three hours every Monday with a variety of skilled artists who have previously included Emily McLean, Jeffery Jay Fowler, Sally Richardson, Humphrey Bower and many more. The first workshop in April will focus on producing independent theatre, and the following three workshops will look at contemporary Australian plays. Please see below for further details.
As a result of past classes, shows have been devised, networks have been extended, actors have been cast and skills have been sharpened.
The sessions run on a drop-in system, so you only need to come when you can.
When: Mondays 6:30pm-9:30pm
Where: The Blue Room Theatre
For further information about the Little y Theatre Workshops, please contact Georgia.
** You must be a member of The Blue Room Theatre to attend.
Monday 11, 18 & 25 April
The remaining April workshops will see Lisa Louttit lead a scene study from Australian contemporary plays. Performers will focus on the art of listening on stage and the practice of following impulse to allow organic responses. Actors will discover what Meisner has called ‘living truthfully and being fully available’ in the scene’s dialogue and characters’ interaction.
