A FREE performance-making workshop
Funded by the Regional Development Arts Fund (a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council), Stories of Dis.place.ment aims to explore the theme “displacement” in the Noosa shire through performing arts. This topic includes discussing immigration, travel, exchange of cultures, and all kinds of “displacement” of people and nature in the region.
The D.I.V.E Theatre Collective is a collective of theatre practitioners (based in Noosa) from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds wanting to explore and create work in contemporary theatre.
We will run a free performing arts workshop based on this theme with people from the community (actors, singers, dancers, artists, students and performing arts enthusiasts). The aim is to create a space for community exchange and artistic collaboration, in which collective creation will generate new possibilities and meanings in performance-making. The outcome of the workshop will lead to a public wandering performance/flash mob in an outdoor space in Cooroy.
No auditions necessary, but a commitment to participate in both the full workshop and the performance is required. Registration by 15th May is essential at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t make it to the workshop, come watch the performance on 26th May! We’ll meet at the Butter Factory and wander through some iconic buildings in downtown Cooroy that have stories of displacement to tell.
