CAMP is Back to Back Theatre’s annual weekend of delightfully ruthless theatre-making workshops for community members with and without disability who love, or are curious about performance making.
Workshop facilitators for this year’s event include Artistic Director of Fraught Outfit, Adena Jacobs, Artist Jack Sheppard, multi-art performer Joseph O’Farrell (JOF), visual ecologist Aviva Reed and a special first-time collaboration with the Geelong Library.
No experience is necessary and new faces are especially welcome. Full weekend, full day or single workshop tickets are available but positions are limited and bookings are essential.
CAMP 2018 is supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Victoria, City of Greater Geelong, TAC, Give Where You Live, Geelong Community Foundation, Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, Geelong Library & Courthouse Youth Arts.
