Feminist Theatre Workshop – MAKING WAVES

Image may contain: one or more people

Paper Mountain operates on the unceded sovereign lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people of the Bibbulmun nation. The Noongar people past and present are an essential part of our cultural history, Perth’s arts community and Paper Mountain. We extend solidarity and friendship and hope for a future where all are afforded justice, dignity, and peace. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

A practical workshop for devisers, theatre-makers, aspiring writers, and anyone who wants to create feminist theatre “from scratch”.
An exploration into the process of using experience, inspiration, imagination and collaboration to create characters, scenes, and stories that authentically reflect the world around you in a way that is uniquely yours.
The workshop begins by looking at the moment when creative work begins – considering what we think about before putting pen to paper to create a script.
We will provide you with inspiration in the form of voice recordings, images and music which you’ll use to inspire a cast of brand-new characters. You’ll write your own monologue and collaborate with your fellow attendees to flesh out your imagery.
The workshop ends with a supportive feedback session where you’ll share responses to each other’s work, discuss how you may develop your scenes/characters in future, and how collaboration can help to improve representation on stage.
Tempest Theatre workshops are open to people of all genders, but have a strong feminist focus, and are aimed specifically at people who feel their voices are often underrepresented on stage – if you are a white, cis, non-disabled, straight man, then this space is not for you. If you have a question about accessibility or content, please feel free to email anytime on info@tempest-theatre.com
