Perth Waldorf School, 14 Gwilliam Drive, Bibra Lake WA, 6163 Theatre Games will be used for the warm-ups in these workshops. Theatre Games are embodied, playful, fun, relaxing, and nurturing building trust in the body and in the group. Theatre games open communication and stimulate collective creativity.
Theatre games, image-making, storytelling, improvisation, and playmaking open up new resources in our relationships. The movement section of the workshop will involve shapes and gestures from the participants as well as choreographic tools that I have collected attending choreographic training over the past 5 years. Participants will collaborate with the group towards a performance within our group at the end of 6 weeks.
Participants need to have lived experience of Family & Domestic Violence and have moved out of it by at least 3 years.
With Theatre for Living Facilitator Jennipher McDonald
This workshop is for women who have experienced past trauma, emotional, physical, mental, or financial, and who want to use their body to write a new story, to be witness in the group - a story of wholeness.
This work will involve seeing with fresh eyes, sensing from the field, and operating from the whole: linking the head, heart, and mind, and having a vision and intention for the future.

“I love the freedom and simplicity of this process. Afterward, I feel more embodied, slower, and softer gestures gave me a sense of ease, liberation, connection, and presence with heart. Developing a capacity to use body posture to reframe negative holding."
“It’s been a real privilege to partake in the group. I love the creativity and how you can transform in ways that can’t necessarily be intellectualised or understood in a linear way."
"The gentle process of integration, body as a language with movement and intent respecting innate wisdom trusting body flow as a way of self-creation"
