Theatre Introduction

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Have you ever wanted to explore stage performance?

In this course, you will be introduced to the world of theatre. We will explore the different types of theatre used as a storytelling platform across the world

In all cultures throughout the ages, theatrical storytelling has brought communities together, addressed current political issues, passed down ancestral stories, brought relief and entertainment, captured moments in history and challenged societal norms.

The course offers a brief introduction to some of the different theatre styles, from Improvisation Theatre, to Commedia Del Arte, Cabaret, Movement Theatre, Elizabethan Theatre, Tragedy, Comedy, traditional and contemporary Storytelling.

Whilst intensive theatre training is an extensive and ongoing exploration of many art forms, this course offers you a taster; a peek behind the theatre curtain, for those who are curious to learn some of the tools of thespian players.

Come and dip your toe into the performing arts pool, you just might want to strip right off and dive in, but that’s another course, for another time.

Sama Ky Balson has worked within the performing arts industry for two decades. She has an international body of work as a Theatre Director and workshop facilitator across Australia, the U.S.A. and Europe.

Sama trained at the International theatre school of Jaques Lecoq, in Paris and the Eora Indigenous Centre of Performing Arts.
Sama has trained professional actors, children and corporate professionals in theatre, storytelling and public presentations.
