Tantrum FleX Ensemble
What is it?
At its heart, Tantrum FleX Ensemble (formerly Tantrum X) invites teenagers to collaborate with each other as artists to make new connections and exciting new art.
In a world turned on its head by coronavirus, this takes on a whole new meaning. Tantrum FleX speaks to the challenge that all artists face in discovering new ways of working together and new approaches to forging connections, both during and beyond this pandemic.
As always, Tantrum believes that young people are up to the challenge, as experts in thinking outside the box and adapting to change.
In 2020, Tantrum FleX adapted as artists to deliver FleXpo – an online experience featuring three brand new audio works.
In 2021, the Tantrum FleX Ensemble worked with local artists and animators to create Heist at the Museum, a sneaky and imaginative family card game suitable for 4-6 players aged 12+.
How does it work?
Tantrum FleX Ensemble runs as an additional weekly Saturday workshop alongside our Afternoon Drama Workshops for young people aged 12-18. As long as you’ve participated in another Tantrum workshop within the previous year and have energy and imagination to burn, you’re eligible to join!
The program culminates in the making of a brand-new creative work. The work will be presented for the greater community in a way that responds flexibly to our context at the time – whatever that may be! Together, we will find creative and innovative solutions to making and performing.
