NEW SHORT WORKS demonstrates the industry-level training at the heart of Sydney's only acting and theatre-making degree course. Each final year actor takes a role in a creative team: Director or Designer, Writer or Dramaturge, Light or Sound, Producer or Stage Manager. That team not only MAKES a new piece of theatre, they also ACT in another team's show! Sounds mad? It's awesome.
Sample the creative delights of the Bachelor of Performance in our latest program of fresh and furious theatre!
GODS & GAMES: NEW SHORT WORKS
THE FIRE BEARER is a theatre-in-education project, based on Bertolt Brecht's THE LIFE OF GALILEO. Like Prometheus before him, Galileo wrestles to put the heavenly fire of the sun in its rightful place.
TIRESIAS is a physical theatre piece based on the ancient Greek myth of Tiresias. Delving into the awesome stories of figures like Antigone, Oedipus, and Narcissus, it explores the acceptance of responsibility and fault.
JONAS is a new short play examining the "void" in modern life. A man, his creation, and the world of his subconscious. This new writing speaks to our desires and fears of being, becoming, and achieving.
HEART / BOTTLE is an adaptation of a contemporary Australian children's book. Once there was a girl whose heart was filled with the wonders of the world. But one sad day she chose to lock it away in a nice safe place.
