Learn to play the ukulele, write songs and perform in public. Bursting with happiness, Toy Choir blends the young voices with the joyous sounds of sugar pop harmonies and infectious ukulele strumming. Overflowing with lyrics and images inspired by the Australian landscape, Toy Choir uniquely reflects the ideas and impressions of young women in Australia today. Over the course of the workshop, each participant will have created a story and learnt how to structure it into a song. The workshop will culminate in performances or can adapt to highly engaging online content.
Tender Young Creatures is based on the narrative of Little Red Riding Hood, and built around the cast and creatives own experiences. The activation is a contemporary look at the wolf which lives inside us. Working within a static installation – girls will learn how to activate the space and use multi arts practices to bring the work to life. Incorporating harmonies, melodies, monologues and chants, the young women in this workshop will create a final performance based on the well-known tale. By questioning the traditional relationship between performer and audience, Tender Young Creatures subverts the role we expect young girls to play in public life
