This is what we do...

And this is what people are saying...

The Story Slingers team inspired and challenged our students during the Theatre Writing Masterclass. The program offered participants an opportunity to engage in the writing process in a refreshing way, culminating in a group performance at the end of the workshop. Students were encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone and embrace new techniques and ideas. I would thoroughly recommend this program to anyone wanting to inspire the next generation of writers.

Theatre/Writing Masterclass - Roma Street Parklands

IMG_6404

Welcome to our one-day theatre/writing masterclass! Together we will explore that most basic of human impulses—storytelling.

Part 1 of the masterclass is concerned with freeing our imaginations and letting our ideas fly. We will explore Theatre improvisations, exploring the idea of the creation myth—participants will create their own personal god and explore the power (and existential crises) that comes with divine power.

Part 2 of the masterclass is in the form of a dramatic quest to save the natural environment—but what happens when a villain infiltrates the group?

Over the course of the day, we will develop, write, rehearse and perform a play, mimicking the process of a professional devised-theatre company (still having fun along the way, of course).

Suitable for ages 8 - 14

Cost: $65

Story Writing Workshop For Young Creatives - Roma Street Parklands

IMG_6207

Have you ever been inspired to write a story? Welcome to The Voices in Your Head Story Writing Course for Young Creatives. Today we're introducing you to The Inspirer:

This guy’s your first port of call. He’s the harbinger of your ideas and your igniter of your creative energy. When the cogs in your brain start spitting sparks at the explosion of a streetlight or the death-caw of a crow he’s the voice that’s taking charge.

In the world of the Inspirer, chaos reigns. Impulse is what’s important, and anything goes. If you think your idea is crazy and it makes you laugh, cry and spin around in circles, then you’re on the right track. It’s time for Mad Hatter’s tea parties and parachuting out of trees and digging holes that lead to nowhere and anywhere. It’s party time…

Suitable for 8 - 14 year olds

Cost: $65
