This is the second of what is intended to be a regular series of offerings. As one of the goals of the school is to share experience across the region we will be aiming to have a broad cross section of companies represented at each program. 

Like our first program this is not an introduction to Playback Theatre and assumes a good working knowledge of the basic forms. The course is designed for practitioners who are looking to deepen and develop their existing skills. It is not designed to meet the needs of the very new. When you express interest we will ask about your background in playback, what roles you have taken and what draws you to the theme of this program.

There are still a few places available - but be quick.

Selection of participants for this program

As there is still a few places available following the EOI period these will be filled on a first come first in process.

The deposit is $300 and the balance of payment will be due 1 month prior to the program (ie. at the beginning of June).

Fee Relief

We are conscious that practitioners have very different abilities to cover this cost and that some have to add considerable travel costs. Fee relief closed with the EOI period at the end of March. If you wish to attend the program and could only do so with fee relief please indicate that in your EOI and we will be in touch.
