A series of free performance workshops will begin in Dookie tomorrow, with participants getting the chance to perform at Dookie Earthed in October.

The Movement Awareness and Performance Workshop will encourage participants to move their bodies in different ways and will feature an internal listening process and performance games.

The Theatre Workshops will give participants the chance to work towards a performance in a dramatic play The Sepia Picnic, which recreates a picnic from the early part of the 20th century in Dookie.

Both workshops will give participants the chance to perform at the Dookie Earthed event on Saturday, October 4.

The workshops are free and will be guided by directors Jillian Pearce of Y Space in Natimuk in Victoria, and Ian Pidd, freelance director of Theatre Melbourne.

The Movement and Performance Workshops will start tomorrow with two session times – 1pm to 3pm or 7pm to 9pm – and will be held at Dookie College’s main hall. They will continue on September 4, 11, 18 and 25 and October 2.

The Theatre Workshops will begin on Sunday, August 24, at the Dookie Memorial Hall and will run from 11am to 1pm. The workshops will continue on dates to be confirmed.

For more information and to book a place, phone Dookie Arts on 0497077569.
