School Holiday Workshops: Week One
Week one dates: 12—14 April 2023
Event Information

Footscray Community Arts is the place for creative kids these holidays! This April, your little superstars are invited to join us for an action-packed theatre workshop with the award winning ensemble, PO PO MO CO.   

Across three days, kids will take part in the FUNdamentals of Physical Theatre, a workshop for budding performers that explores how artists can transform and become someone else. 

Grounded in play and physical comedy, participants will learn how to make outrageous characters and funny scenes – using the human body to construct larger-than-life comic personas.   

On the last day, there will be an afternoon ‘open class’ where parents and carers are invited to watch, participate and play alongside the participants.  

Suitable for kids 6-12 years – this workshop is about building confidence and trying new things, no acting or theatre experience necessary! 

Explore Week Two of Footscray Community Arts’ School Holiday Workshops: Extreme Arts, where kids can learn how to weave, create felt banners, find their percussive rhythm, and delve into their creative side. Click here to find out more!
