Tantrum’s 2017 trajectory

Tantrum Youth Arts will launch its 2017 Trajectory program.

The program offers a suite of activities for emerging artists to develop pathways into professional contemporary performance careers.

Performers will be given the opportunity to join Tantrum’s Trajectory Ensemble and work with one of Australia’s most exciting new theatre makers Janie Gibson.

They will also work alongside Tantrum artistic director Lucy Shepherd to develop and present a major production, Home. 

“By joining Tantrum’s Ensemble young artists are exposed to a series of process-driven theatre making workshops and will gain valuable insight into the collaborative process of devising new theatre work in Australia” Ms Shepherd said.

Participants will also attend a masterclass series, offering  professional development and training opportunities with established artists and industry leaders.

Tantrum will offer three residencies to individual artists or groups as part of the Trajectory program in 2017. It will provide space, mentoring and administrative and technical support for artists to undertake the creative development of a new performance work  in Newcastle.
