Workshop Descriptions

Mon 16 July – “Whose Line Is It?” (Improvisation)
A day of fun games and improv exercises. Students learn the basics of improvisation and/or build on their experience. Lots of laughter, creative thinking, and team work.

Tue 17 July – “Enchanted Toy Shop” (Physical Theatre)
We explore the movements of robots, rag dolls and mannequins to create magical stories and characters. Students create fun scenes to explore what happens when the toys come to life each night!

Wed 18 July – “Lights! Camera! Action!” (Acting for Screen)
We introduce the students to the world of screen acting through scenes ranging from made-up commercials, to presenting, to drama scenes. Scenes will be recorded for you to keep.

Thurs 19 July – “Kiwi Tales” (NZ Storytelling)
We create scenes and short plays based on some of our favourite New Zealand books. A fun day where we explore how to take a story from the page to the stage!

Fri 20 July – “Tales of the Pacific” (Pasifika Performance with Antonia and Sam Kamu)
Our popular and talented guest tutors, Antonia and Sam Kamu, will guide the students through a Pasifika story, working with dance, music and drama.  The students become storytellers and share their devised work with us at the end of the day.
