In-School Workshops

Our workshops have been developed to familiarise students with the conventions of contemporary performance, physical theatre and political theatre.

The classes are taught by one or two D.I.V.E. teaching artists, depending on the number of students.

Duration: 70-90 minutes
Cost: $320* (up to 20 students) / $15 per additional student (max. 30 students)

Contemporary Performance

This workshop introduces students to four conventions of contemporary performance used by D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective in our shows and creative projects: fragmentation, non-linear form, immersive theatre, and site-specific performance. Students will learn how to create powerful poetic theatre scenes using these approaches and integrate physical theatre/movement, text and vocal expression into complex interactive systems.


An introduction to D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective’s approach to devising physical theatre. Our methodology gives voice to human stories and relevant social issues. The students will learn how to create striking theatre scenes based on a particular theme and have hands-on experience developing their own vibrant short pieces. This workshop will enable participants to gain independence, improve their teamwork skills, and build their critical thinking capabilities and creativity.

Introduction to Physical Theatre

Through a series of playful and challenging movement routines and exercises, students will learn how to use their physicality as the main medium for storytelling in their daily routine and on the stage. This workshop will enable participants to gain confidence, develop body awareness and get acquainted with the foundations of physical theatre based on Meyerhold’s Biomechanics techniques.

Theatre of the Oppressed

In this workshop, students will learn how to use theatre to make sense of difficult life situations and gain the strength and confidence to deal with circumstances of injustice in their personal life, school, family setting or local community. Participants will develop their critical thinking, team-building and problem-solving capabilities by acting out rather than just talking about challenging episodes that happen to people in their daily routines.

The workshop includes an introduction to Augusto Boal’s methodology through games and group exercises to develop the physical senses, rhythms, sounds, space awareness, relationships, memory, emotions and imagination.
