Driving drama skills

If you’re young (14-18) and interested in performance for stage or screen then Norpa has an workshop opportunity for you.

You can develop your drama skills by playing a role in Engine – a play in-the-making based on real life events in our region – and have your best performance captured on film.

Norpa’s artistic director Julian Louis and writer Janis Balodis have been developing Engine through community consultation and development workshops throughout last year and this. Engine is about the culture of cars – the freedom they promise to both young women and men and how getting your licence is a modern rite of passage.

Norpa has teamed with film and television drama producers Every Cloud Productions to document the youth-led development of Engine and to use the camera as a tool for critical performance feedback.

Auditions for this workshop will be held in Lismore on November 20, and in Byron on November 21. Successful auditioners will attend the weekend workshop on November 28 and 29.

For more info phone Marisa on 6622 0300 or email producer@norpa.org.au.
