Roll in to On Stage this April with the Physical Theatre and Acro 5-day Intensive.

Presented in association with award winning South Australian acrobatics and physical theatre company Gravity & Other Myths (GOM), join us at the Adelaide Festival Centre for a week-long masterclass introducing you to the unique physical language and creative process at the core of the company's widely celebrated, high octane performances. 

Over the week, you’ll gain a toolbox of physical acrobatics skills to draw upon in the creative development sessions as GOM artists guide you through the company's fundamental principles of creating Physical Theatre works. Participants will sharpen their skills in using movement as a medium for storytelling and further develop their ability to create compelling physicality to provide context to a theme or narrative. 

No auditions required. 

Numbers are capped so get in quick!

“The girls had a ball and so did we. What invaluable experience for them both at such a young age and just so much fun to be involved in” 

— Parent Testimonial

"You all go above and beyond – in particular I really appreciate the 'kiss and drop' service – it takes all the stress out of the drop off/pick up times for me."

— Parent Testimonial

"My son did the On Stage program last week and I wanted to email and sincerely thank you and all of those involved in the week.  My son had never done any singing or dancing and I wanted him to try it out and see if he liked it in a safe and comfortable environment where it wouldn't matter if he knew what he was doing and I can say he absolutely loved it.  It isn't always easy as a teenager to try something completely new and your program is delivered so well it gave him that great opportunity to do this which I am very thankful for."
