Wednesdays 5pm - 7.30pm
Conundrum’s Performance Ensemble invites young people (ages 12-18) to be co-creators and collaborators in the creative process as they work to create an original theatrical work for presentation in Singapore in 2022 and Australia in 2023! Guided by award-winning theatre maker and applied theatre practitioner, Claire Glenn, young, emerging artists will be given the space to create the work that they want to create, by responding to provocations to ignite the devising process.
The Performance Ensemble will take risks, gain insight into the devising process, refine their performance skills as individuals and a group, and experience working together as a theatre company. Throughout the year, the ensemble will experiment with improvisation, scene work, devising, character development, writing, movement, vocal work, monologues and more! They will investigate world issues and current events, tell stories, analyse scripts, and, perhaps most importantly, make, rehearse and perform their very own, original show.
Conundrum’s Performance Ensemble promises to provide fun and challenging theatrical experiences that will produce dynamic, confident and courageous theatre makers and performers.
22 - 23 CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
Ages 5 - 7
Saturdays 10am - 11am
In this dynamic introduction to theatre, children are invited to discover their creativity and unleash their imaginations through games, free play, and storytelling. They will improve their literacy and numeracy, learn how to work together, listen and share, create characters, build exciting new worlds, and enhance their storytelling abilities. As the skills of the ensemble improve, we will devise a short play that will be presented to parents at the end of the year. Lots of fun for the absolute beginner!
Ages 8 - 10
Tuesdays 4.30pm - 6pm
Saturdays 11:30am - 1pm
As their awareness of the world grows, so too will your child’s awareness of the performance and theatre making process. Children will be given the freedom to explore who they are and their place in the world, while having fun and learning how to create brand new works of theatre. Improvisation and theatre making tasks will run alongside games as they expand their knowledge of theatrical craft and process. We will encourage creative expression by building characters, experimenting with physicality, writing scenes and rehearsing for performances. Your child will build confidence, collaborative skills and learn how to take risks in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
Ages 11 - 14
Thursdays 4:30pm - 6:30pm
The unique voices of this middle-school aged ensemble will shine through as they become proficient creators and performers. A variety of theatre making devices and theatrical styles will be explored to support these young artists in forging their own creative methodologies. This safe space will be filled with creative experimentation and risk taking, as the ensemble try their ideas on the floor using improvisation, provocation, physicality, story-telling, and world and character building. The perfect workshop for your child to expand their theatrical and performance knowledge and to take the next step in their actor training.
