Performance training series with the Present Tense Ensemble

16/02/2014 @ 6:00 am - 25/02/2014 @ 10:00 pm


Training is central to our continuing collaboration.

We train to activate the body’s relationship to breath, space and whatever is being investigated; whether it be an existing text or the devising of a new work.

In February we will deliver a theatre-making training series in Ballarat. The offering: physical and vocal training, provocations through floor work, and time for considered feedback and dialogue.

The four sessions take place on:

  • Sunday 16 February, from 6pm to 9pm
  • Tuesday 18 February, from 7pm to 10pm
  • Sunday 23 February, from 6pm to 9pm
  • Tuesday 25 February, from 7pm to 10pm

The cost is $160, places limited and discounts are available for current & former Ballarat Arts Academy students.

We will announce our venue shortly (there are many beautiful and strange spaces in Ballarat we’d like to engage with!)

We consider performance training to be a continuous and ongoing activity to inform every aspect of the artist. Our process is highly kinaesthetic, focused on developing the individual artists intuitive responsiveness in space, alongside enabling ensemble based practice that inspire new works and continuing collaborations.


Warm Regards
