men's theatre project
Welcome! What happens when a group of men meet for ten evenings to connect and play? Come and find out!
Over the course of ten 3-hour sessions we will build skills in improvisation, movement, storytelling and characterization as we develop material for a devised performance piece, which will be presented in the Byron Theatre in the 10th week, on Monday eve, 17th December.
The thematic material for the performance will evolve through the process of working together. Hopefully we will enter worlds sublime, ridiculous, intimate and universal as we dive into the ocean of creativity together - emerging victorious and ready to share the treasures we bring back from whatever shipwrecks, caves or mythical worlds we find ourselves in!
No previous performance experience is necessary for this project. And please note, individuals who identify as male are also most welcome.
This 10wk course will conclude with a live theatre Performance in The Byron Theatre on Mon eve 17th December!!!
10 Wed Eve. 17 Oct- 19 Dec 2018. 6.00pm - 9.00 pm. Byron Community Centre, 69 Jonson St. Byron Bay.
The 10 week course cost is $250 (earlybird $220 till 3 October) Please contact Adrian today on 0437 328 394.
