empowering women through theatre-lismore


In this 8 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! 😀

$220 for each 8 week Term. ($200 EB available)

Please call Frauke on 0497 535 031 for further details or if you have questions. (Subsidies may be possible for women with lived experience of DV.) Wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water and a note book.

Thursdays, 4.00pm - 6.30pm, Rochdale Theatre, 603 Ballina Road, Goonellebah, 2480
