Off duty Pirate creates safe supportive learning space for a range of theatre games and practices. Over twenty years experience, ex Spaghetti Circus coach, winner of peoples choice award (2016) for Fl

Methodology

I'm a big fan of student led learning, eg. following students passions and slipping in the 'nuts and bolts' once they are sufficiently hooked, employing a range of theatre games, movement and mime. We run through the basics of improvisation such as 'making an offer', 'yielding', 'building on an offer', and much more.

Background

Hello. I have been teaching and performing for over twenty years, working at festivals and teaching workshops. For the last three years I have taught drama and music at Tuntablefalls Community school and have recently introduced film making to our curriculum.
I have worked on 'Freak street' and 'Disturbia' with Annie Lee (Kranski sisters), Roundabout Theatre, several Spaghetti circus big top shows, Spiegel tent, and done most of the major festivals. I have run circus/theatre/music workshops for decades at festivals, halls and remote indigenous communities.

Rates

Travel Fee : $10

Details

My rate is fully negotiable. Factors such as group bookings, travel distance, concession ect. I do not offer my first lesson free, but this website didn't give me that option (sorry for contradiction) theatre games work best in groups and that is my preference, however, there is a range of things that can be accomplished one on one.
