Performance making and design.

In addition to one-off workshops, DPS artists often work with schools, theatre programs, and community groups on longer, more intensive projects. If you have a unit of work, theatre project, play or musical where a longer form collaboration would suit, we’d love to talk about how  we can help.

With ten years of experience directing and facilitating residencies that run across a week or multiple school terms, we can tailor a process that provides a deeply insightful experience, whether this be through devising a new work, designing and building custom puppets, or rehearsing and presenting an existing text using visual methods. 

Past residencies have included: 

• Theatre Residency Week Facilitation (Queensland Theatre) 

• Puppet Design and Direction (The Lion the Witch & the Wardrobe, Kings Christian College) 

• Workshops & Community Performances (Horn Island & Thursday Island State Schools) 

• Mini School Artist in Residence (Mount Isa School of the Air) 

• Artist in Residence (Centre for Artistic Development, Redcliffe State High School) 

• Puppetry Training (Starlight Children’s Foundation)
