ANARCHY - free abandon. Organized Chaos. Essential elements for great theatre. Students work towards a meaningful production discarding all traditional elements of theatre. And creating new ways of working with and to an audience. No rule theatre. Great Theatre. Coming soon: Viewpoints and Suzuki Training Method.
ANARCHY ENSEMBLE What is it?.......An occasional ensemble held every 5 weeks, for 5 weeks. Physical Theatre and Theatre Composition. Anarchy = free of restraint....free of restraints of traditional theatre.
Whose it for? .......students aged 14 - 18. Can be member of an existing QSPA Ensemble or attend Anarchy as their only ensemble.
Fees....Already in a QSPA Ensemble? $50 Anarchy is your only Ensemble? $120
What will I do in Anarchy?.......Create visually stronger non-naturalistic theatre by exploring separately the parts within theatre creation.....E.g, Movement, Rhythm, Balance, Focus, Contrast, Depth, Pattern, Proportion, Unity, Levels.
You will feel able to offer radical ideas and explore freely without judgement or restraints of traditional theatre. Undertake a short free performance to small invited audience of peers and family....a performance where the audience must really expect the unexpected....
Will I be safe?!!!!!.......Though Anarchy means free of restraint, all students will be safe and treated appropriately during sessions. This is opportunity to try physical theatre and composition without pressure of large performance. Open to 12 students of any ability, any level of fitness.
How will it help me?....... Ability to use imagination in a free manner, not be afraid of ideas, to create pieces of work that are 'alternative' and stunning.
The learning will help school studies in Drama and prepare students for University courses. Improves communication and group working skills. You learn to think on their feet, discuss and improve upon ideas without discarding the theatrically 'impossible'. Skills which are necessary in the outside world and in any line of work.
Ok. How do I join?!!!!....... Ensure all existing fees are paid for any other QSPA ensemble before applying. Register interest by contacting Catherine Steer firstname.lastname@example.org . Payment needs to be made in advance of term commencement. Students must wear all black with small coloured clothing items of their choice. Be prepared to get wet, be painted on .....etc!
