empowering women through theatre-lismore


In this 8 week women's theatre course we will be creating a space to work with movement, improvisation, creative writing, voice and mask work.

Women amongst women can explore and express themselves and their current life themes in a safe and creative environment whilst learning new skills, being playful and having fun.

Through theatre we will connect with each other and support each other’s empowerment. Empowerment is the process in which we elaborate and recreate what it is, that we can be, do and accomplish in circumstances that were previously holding us back.

Over the term we will share stories, develop a theatrical language and create individual and group work, in the incredible underground studios of The Northern Rivers Conservatorium, at Lismore Quad.

🌟 This course is open to women of ALL levels of theatre experience, from none at all, to working professionals! 😀

Social Theatre Art is a tool that is increasingly being used to empower people throughout the world. Whilst not necessarily disadvantaged in The Northern Rivers, we still have issues, personal trauma and extraordinary stories as a rich source of raw material. The playful power of theatre can be incredibly far reaching and our personal stories are always a reflection of the community we live in.

Our 8 week Empowering Women through Theatre’ courses have been running termly since 2015.
