Our training and workshop program brings together artists from multiple disciplines to create, learn and experiment together in The Studio at NORPA and on sites around our region.


A NORPA and Critical Path Collaboration

We have joined forces with Critical Path on a 2-year program that will explore and extend dance theatre practice in the Northern Rivers region. INFORM aims to create a space for opening up ideas and broadening skills at the intersection of dance and theatre making. A series of workshop-labs will consider how dance and choreography can underpin an embodied approach to theatre and provide different methodologies for performance making.

Four ‘workshop-labs’ will harness the skills of leading choreographers.
