SongProv - FIBRO & FENCES with Tim Redmond.

Fibro and Fences Tile with text.jpg

In songprov, we often go big. Huge characters in huge stories who sing their wants and dreams. But what about the small stories? What about the intimate, domestic stories? What about our stories...us Australians?

Stories of that bloke over the back-fence, that kid with that bike at the milk-bar, the sort-of aunt who really wasn't an aunt, the drinkers, the trouble-makers, the peace-makers and the larrikins who populated our streets, kitchens and verandas.

This is a term our own unique Australian take on things and how the tiniest moment from our lives and worldview can be the kernel for songprov of the highest order.

Over nine weeks, students will be guided through song types and their structure, the value of simple lyrics and emotional clarity, tonal training and how with just a single, committed idea, entire worlds can be created. It culminates in a performance of, "Fibro & Fences", an improvised musical created from Australian hearts.

About Performance Series

Performance Series is an in-depth and creatively challenging workshop experience. Over 9 weeks students will be introduced to, develop, rehearse and perform an improvised show!

The course is designed to challenge students in performance skills, improvisation technique and various aspects of creating and performing an improvised format.

Each Term offers a different Format. The formats have been selected to target different skill areas and provide a diverse and dynamic experience to the student.

On week 9, students will perform the format. After the workshop students receive individual written feedback on their performance and skill development.

What you will learn:

  • Performance technique - confidence, relaxed energy, voice
  • Stage Craft
  • What is the point and promise of a format for an audience 
  • Shaping a performance
  • How to serve the scene and the overall story through character
  • Improvisation skill enhancement and development
