Teacher Professional Development

Throughout the year, Tantrum’s professional theatre makers and teaching artists run workshops for teachers, teaching artists, facilitators, and tutors.

Upcoming Teacher Professional Development Workshop

Physical Theatre

with Adam Deusien from Lingua Franca Theatre 

Saturday 1 April 2023


Tantrum Studio, 101 City Road Merewether


In this highly practical workshop, Adam will introduce you to physical theatre methodologies, and how you can apply these to the devising process. This workshop is designed for teachers and facilitators from diverse performance disciplines, such as theatre, dance, acrobatic, and general movement. Participants will explore different approaches to using their bodies as instruments for storytelling, and will be able to pass on this knowledge with confidence to their students. 

Adam has over 15 years’ experience creating and touring physical theatre work with his award-winning company Lingua Franca Theatre. Hear about Adam’s approach to the first steps of play building through movement, and connect with other local teachers/facilitators through this hands-on, experimental session.
