Amidst COVID-19 restrictions the arts industries have been greatly impacted. However, it’s not just the current crop of performers who are suffering, the next wave of aspiring talent have been robbed of opportunities to learn and grow due to theatre shutdowns. To alleviate this problem a brand new kid on the block has arrived to provide online workshops for school-aged kids to learn the theatre craft.
Local company Jump StARTYouth Theatre will provide four online holiday workshops during the winter break.
Founded by New Ghosts Theatre Company, Artistic Director Lucy Clements and performer Emma Wright bring a wealth of experience working at the highest levels of Australian youth arts and professional theatre. Lucy and Emma are passionate about bringing their extensive skill sets to the classroom.
The winter workshops will explore a wide range of topics including performance, group devising, playwriting, directing, and film and television production. There will be an emphasis on unlocking potential, bringing new stories to life and investigating the artistic process from concept to realisation. Imagination and creative play is at the forefront of the teaching and will all be provided in a safe, tolerant, and inclusive space for exploration.
Jul 8-17. Online Workshops. $30-$50 (discount if booking more than one student). Info: www.jumpstartyouththeatre.com
