Mentorship and new work development.

After three years of providing Brisbane theatre makers with an intensive puppetry and visual theatre training program, we’re mixing things up for the DPS Academy. In 2020 Dead Puppet Society and Brisbane Powerhouse have offered Brisbane artists the opportunity to propose an idea for creative development under the guidance of Dead Puppet Society artists.

Over the course of 10 weeks, the three successful projects below will receive training in visual theatre making, mentorship and direction from senior artists of the company, a modest fee to put towards the cost of materials and/or production costs, and facilitated rehearsal time. This will culminate in a weekend of creative development showings at Brisbane Powerhouse, as part of a new series called THE DPS LAB.

The 2020 DPS Academy Participants are:

Fizzy Rascals Theatre Company

Minola Theatre

The Naughty Corner Collective

For presentation opportunities, commissions or more information on our range of workshop and creative offerings.
