The 2020 AusAct: Australian Actor Training Conference will be held online on two half-day sessions: Tuesday December 8 and Wednesday December 9, 2020. Specific times will be announced closer to the date. This conference and training event is a presentation of actor training scholarship by researchers, practitioners and pedagogues working with original performer training methods developed within the Australian context. It is an event focusing on Australian actor training pedagogies and research and its relationship to place, space, land, environment, culture and technologies. The conference will provide an avenue for the sharing of original materials and knowledge in dialogue within the Australian performer training context. The conference aims to celebrate, interrogate and showcase actor training methods that have been created and developed in Australia. We invite individual papers (20 minutes duration) and workshop sessions (up to 60 minutes duration).
The conference will have two main parts: Conference and Training.
Professionals will be invited to propose workshops based on their research and practice to be delivered online. The material must be original and align with the conference themes.
