Tantrum FleX Ensemble
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, Tantrum FleX Ensemble will continue to run on Saturdays for young people aged 12-18 (Yr 7-12). The program will culminate 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.
Tantrum FleX Ensemble runs as an additional weekly workshop alongside our afternoon program 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!
2021 - Heist at the Museum
Heist At The Museum is Tantrum FleX’s 2021 major work. After the ensemble’s creative development was turned on it’s head by COVID-19 restrictions, Tantrum FleX turned to a new medium for creative play and connection: board games. Over the course of ten weeks on Zoom, the Tantrum FleX ensemble developed a brand new card game as an artistic work for families and groups of friends to experience in their own homes.
Heist at the Museum is available as a FREE Print and Play PDF.
A limited run of card decks are also available for order.
Please Note: Tantrum will continue to follow and respond to government health advice at all times. In the instance that the Tantrum site is forced to close, all workshops and activities will immediately move to online delivery. No refunds or credits will be given except in the event of workshops being cancelled.
We will continue to offer our Tantrum OPEN Scholarship program for young people facing disadvantage.
