Find new ways into interpreting contemporary theatre texts by working with one of Sydney’s leading theatre directors. Kate will guide you through new points of focus and then ask you to apply these to text-based scenes. You will have time to collaborate with your scene partner on an interpretation and then Kate will direct the scene. We’ll work to turn off your inner critic and remind you how exciting bold, intuitive choices can be to aid your work. 

Kate’s classes are safe, inclusive and always inspiring. She will select material for each participant to suit their ability and potential.
