Make Noise. Make Connections. Make Change.

Tantrum Youth Arts and Civic Theatre present:

Accelerate Ensemble

Launched in 2021, Accelerate Ensemble is a performance ensemble for young adults with disability who want to explore their own arts practice and work together to push the boundaries of what theatre can DO.

During weekly workshops held throughout the year, the Ensemble will develop skills in all aspects of collaborative theatre making, leading to the creation of original performance works. These works, whether big or small, will always be true to the group’s interests, ideas and opinions.

Accelerate Ensemble is a partnership between Tantrum and the Civic Theatre– the home of live performance in Newcastle. Civic Theatre will provide an accessible workshop space for the Ensemble to meet each week.

Since its inception in 2021, Accelerate Ensemble has been supported by the internationally acclaimed Geelong-based company

Back to Back Theatre, who have worked with us to establish the ensemble, offering training and support to our participants and staff, and aiding in the production of new works.

Accelerate Ensemble is proudly supported by Beyond Bank Australia.
