WORKSHOPS | REGIONAL ENGAGEMENTS | TEACHING


At the forefront of my artistic practice is the belief that nurturing and encouraging creativity in our younger generations plays a fundamental part in bettering their individual futures, as well as the communities they are a part of.

Throughout July and August, I returned to work with Complete Works Theatre Company, as Abigail in their Victorian tour of The Crucible. We performed a total of 55 shows across metro Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The performance was aimed at VCE students. During the show, scenes from The Crucible were compared and contrasted with passages from the novel, Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. The performance aimed to gift students a deeper understanding of the ideas, issues and themes of both texts and hoped to spark exciting conversation during post show Q & As.


Encounter, with Art Is...Festival, Horsham, VIC

MAY 2018 - JUNE 2018

The Encounter Program invites practicing artists from Horsham's surrounding area and from Melbourne, into local schools to provide hands on arts workshops.  Over the course of a month, I delivered a series of theatre making workshops to four different school groups.

These workshops had a particular emphasis towards the themes of the festivals featured children’s show, which in this case was “Chris, Again”. These workshops culminated in a showing at Horsham's Town Hall, where each of my school groups presented an original piece of devised theatre, which we made together over the course of the month.  

This project is an amazing example of collaboration between many different groups, all with the aim of gifting students new skills, a deeper connection and understanding of the arts and the chance to claim the new Horsham Town Hall stage as their own! 


Shadow Tricks, with Polyglot Theatre for Regional Arts Victoria, in Kerang and Cohuna, VIC

SEPTEMBER 2017

During my first tour with Polyglot Theatre, I worked with multiple kindergarten groups exploring shadow play using cloth, paper and an overhead projector.  These 60 minute sessions focused on story telling through shadow and projection, to give participants an understanding shadows, how they are made and what “tricks” you can play on an audience when using them.

Making it Reel Workshop Series, with the VCA Film and Television

FEBRUARY  2017 - MARCH  2017

These workshops were for Year 10, 11 and 12 students studying Media. The workshops explored storytelling through the body and how best to work with actors on screen.

They aimed to encourage a more diverse group of young people to consider studying filmmaking, so the future of Australian film and Television is more diverse too.

NOVEMBER 2016

This three day festival invited families to camp at the Werribee Mansion and experience live music and performance together.

Myself and two others ran hour long Gymkana’s multiple times a day, each day of the festival. This involved live performance and running various games and exercises to entertain large groups of children.


Access All Areas, a series of school workshops and performances at the Horsham Town Hall, Victoria

FEBRUARY 2016

Access All Areas, Horsham Town Hall, 2016

Jillian Pierce (Horsham’s Cultural Development Officer) welcomed me to their newly renovated Town Hall, to generate and perform an interactive theatrical experience for the children of Horsham.

“Access All Areas” was a creative initiative that aimed to give Horsham’s younger generations ownership over this new creative space and to open their eyes to the different modes of creativity available to them.

The performance took part in the Halls', Auditorium, Old Town Hall and Gallery space. Each of these spaces was activated by a larger than life character, who invited groups to take part in creative games and workshops catered to the room they were in.

This piece was performed by myself, Scott Leek and Hamish Irvine.
