Job details: There is an opportunity for theatre artists to contribute to a doctoral research project with the Faculty of Education and Social Work at the University of Auckland in 2020.
Participants will take part in a 2-day theatre workshops held in Auckland and work collaboratively with fellow artists who have a passion for theatre for social change. The research calls for a diverse range of practitioners from community/professional theatre communities, as well as training and education sectors relating to the performing arts. There is a focus on theatre artists who relate their work to theatre for social change.
The workshop is a chance to reflect on your craft as a creative theatre practitioner, learning more about how and why we create theatre for social change. Participants will engage in improvisation, scene construction, poetry, song, dance, reflective discussion, drawing etc. During these activities participants will reflect on their own creative practice and will collaborate with other participants. The material generated from these workshops will inform a new performance work, directed by the researcher, to be examined as part of the doctoral research at a later date

Saturday & Sunday, September 19th & 20th, at TAPAC
