empowering women through theatre-lismore

In this 9 week women's theatre course we will be creating a very safe space to work with movement, improvisation, creative writing, voice and mask work. 

Over the term we will share stories, develop a theatrical language and create individual and group work.

🌟 No previous experience is necessary to do this course. The main aim is to explore our expressive creativity, find solidarity... and play! 😀

For those women that choose to there is the opportunity to perform with the Byron Bay women’s group at The Rochdale Theatre on the last night of the Lismore Womens Festival.

$180 for the 9 week Term.
