We are about collaboration to create film and theatre pieces that come alive and we have over 20 years experience creating fun and exciting performances.

Movement Workshop

For AAA students 12-17 years and their invited friends.

The body is 1/3 of our actors tool kit and yet it is often the least practised. There is nothing more awesome and liberating than working inside the Safety Net Culture, dressed in theatre blacks, telling stories with your physicality. With the aid of cool Music and an amazing community, you will make this a night to remember.

While we touch on many different movement styles and techniques, this is definitely not dance. It’s physical story telling. When you try this you will be hooked. Movement Night is one of the most popular activities on our 5 day Acting Camps, come join us and find out why. 

Saturday 23 May
Time: 5.30-8pm (come at 5pm for makeup and setup)
Location: Brisbane
Cost: $25 per movement night
