One of the trickiest things for theatre-makers, I think, is staying limber when we're not working. This is why we're starting our Sundays at the Church workshops.
The idea is to always be working, even when we're not – well – working.
Writers can bring along a script they need to hear aloud, actors can bring a snippet of a scene, directors can test out ideas. At the end of it all, we get to come together, work on our craft, experiment, collaborate and build our skill.
It's not class, so there's no teacher leading it all. We'll have someone organising the schedule, so we get through as much as possible, but it's mostly an opportunity to work collaboratively with our colleagues.
We're not charging a set entry fee, as we know how hard it can be to stump up the cash some weeks. It's 'pay what you can' to cover costs. We're suggesting $10, but we'll take your spare change if that's all you can manage. You can sort it out by direct deposit in advance, or cash on the day.
We'll kick off at 6pm this Sunday, 26 April. To reserve your spot, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of any work you'd like to put up.
If you'd like to come along and audit, without being an active participant, you're welcome to just show up on Sunday. Please be aware that space is limited, and it'll be first come, first served.
Bluestone Church Arts Space, Hyde Street, Footscray. There's parking at the rear of the building, and it's a short walk from Footscray Train Station.
See you on Sunday at the Church!
