Good news. Access Arts has been chosen from many applications to take part in a Training Residency at Metro Arts, 109 Edward Street, Brisbane QLD 4000, in 2017. This will enable new opportunities to emerge from weekly Theatre Ensemble classes in partnership with Metro Arts, including intensive skill sharing and performance development workshops from January to June 2017.

This residency will allow for the Theatre Ensemble to create, shape and form new physical theatre techniques and unique collaborations with the award winning Phluxus2 Dance Collective which creates boundary bashing and beautifully abstract stories through the transforming complexities of contemporary dance and dance theatre.

“I left with an altered view: the performance awoke in me the ability to defy the odds.” – Arts Hub

Who is the Residency for?
This residency is for actors, dancers or physical performers who experience disability and are looking to build upon their skills and performance opportunities within a professional ensemble environment.

What will the residency involve?
The Theatre Ensemble will meet once a week at Metro Arts, and will collaborate to create an original performance under the guidance of facilitator Daniele Constance; stage performer, multi-disciplinary producer and director and assisted by teacher and performer Eleonora Ginardi.

Further creative development workshops with Phluxus2 Dance Collective will be available to participants with a focus on process and experimentation, eventuating with the creation of a newly devised dance and theatre work. The residency will take place over two terms, however participants may choose to attend either both these terms or just one.
