Kidsfest and Holiday Programmes
Free Theatre's popular annual Kidsfest and holiday programmes run during January, April, July and October each year in The Gym. Throughout the week, participants (8-12 years) explore: mask-making and performance; puppetry; circus and trapeze skills; voice and text work; sound and technical design. These tools are combined to explore a particular theme with the week culminating in a presentation to family and friends. Previous themes have included Creation Myths, Greek Gods and Heroes, Antarctica and the Olympic Games and taken place in around sets and environments that Free Theatre is working on at the current time.
These are unique opportunities to experience and learn from one of New Zealand's leading exponents of contemporary performance. And they're heaps of fun!
