Term 1 & 2 information:

Term 1

2nd March – April 20th

This is a shorter term with a focus on training elements and seeding two new works for terms 2 & 3. With this is mind we have booked Whitireia Theatre from April 9th- 20th with the plan to run a workshop period (much like a production and show season) working roughly 4 hours each day Monday- Friday with some showings of the work – in progress – to an invited audience at the end of that period (this also makes up for the term size). During the course of term 1 we will have a some guest tutors to work with the company on a range of different skill sets – e.g. movement, voice, devising. This is to help train us and up skill as performers and will also head us toward the two productions in term 2.
