Drama Workshops in Sydney

Enrolments for our 2021 drama workshops are now open!

“Congratulations must go to the culturally diverse cast for a splendid evening’s entertainment.” South Sydney Herald, 2018 about our end of workshop show

Théâtre Excentrique started their drama workshops for adults 6 years ago, first in their rehearsal space in Botany, then in Redfern. 

After Commedia dell’Arte and Actors’ Studio technique, we will focus this year on Physical Theatre and Body Expression.

The workshops will be held by Anna Jahjah, drama teacher and director of Theatre Excentrique. There will also be 2 to 4 interventions by drama teacher and actor Alison Windsor, who studied body expression extensively at the Jacques Lecoq School in Paris.

We will use warm-up exercises, games, improvisations and short scenes to learn the techniques as we go.

Our ultimate goal? A full-length play in front of a friendly audience, performed 3 nights in a row!
