The ILBIJERRI Ensemble is going to be part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2021! Register now to be involved!
This season, we want to cultivate your ideas into an ILBIJERRI Ensemble original devised performance! Incorporating the talents you have while learning new talents along the way. We’ll be going through the process of putting on an independent show that platforms your voices and the stories that you want to tell.
The devised work will be your voices speaking to online culture and how to navigate the world safely. If you have any ideas that speaks to online culture, come along and meet the ensemble so we can all share together and develop a piece we’re all proud of!
No experience needed, just an interest in theatre & storytelling!
Last year, we had amazing guest masterclasses with the likes of Deborah Mailman, Tony Briggs and Shira-Lee Hood! We’ve got some more plans in the works for the ILBIJERRI Ensemble that will ultimately lead to the Ensemble putting on their own devised performance. We’re inviting more special guests to meet with us online fortnightly to have workshops with you alongside our deadly facilitator Nazaree Dickerson with selected workshops in-person!
