COURTHOUSE YOUTH ART, ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE

& RENOWNED UK DANCE COMPANY RE: BOURNE PRESENTS

 

FREE LORD OF THE FLIES DANCE WORKSHOP

FOR MEN & BOYS AGED 12-22 YEARS

 

This free dance workshop is an opportunity for young men and boys to experience dance, to explore their potential interest in dance (even if unknown beforehand) and to interact with professional dance artists and other workshop participants.

The workshops will be led by professional Dance Artists Holly Durrant and Kyall Shanks in a fun and inspiring dance-theatre experience for all-comers. No experience is necessary.

For those participants who wish to further their individual experience after the workshops, they can audition to become part of the Young Ensemble as a part of the professional cast (from the UK and Australia), creating a company of approximately 30 young men and boys for the production of Lord of the Flies presented by Arts Centre Melbourne at the State Theatre in April 2017.

‘I’ve always thought that dance was what girls do, and it’s all really feminine, but as soon as LOTF came up it changed my mind… it can be masculine as well’ UK LOTF workshop participant.

 

Date: November 5, 2016 10am -12noon,

Cost: FREE

The Suitcase Series

Courthouse Youth Arts is thrilled to be partnering with the Malthouse Theatre to bring their award winning education program, The Suitcase Series to Geelong on 8 November 2016.  

The Suitcase Series empowers young people to tackle the greatest challenge of their generation: climate change. Year 9 and 10 students devise their own works in response to the commissioned script. This innovative program is a chance for students to develop and expand their theatre-making skills and to share a performance day with their peers, as well as viewing Malthouse Theatre’s full production of the play.

The Suitcase Series play for 2016 is Turbine by Dan Giovannoni.

You can’t stop progress, right? A loved one, a place, a memory, an icon, a way of life – when loss is inevitable, what do you hold on to? And how? Turbine uses a range of theatrical forms to present vignettes of people who are moving, but aren’t getting anywhere.
