Conference Information

The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts are hosting the 2024 AusAct: Australasian Actor Training Conference on April 2 and 3, with a welcome and tour occurring on Monday April 1. 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 and New Zealand 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 Australasian performer training context. The conference aims to celebrate, interrogate, and showcase actor training methods that have been created and developed in Australia and New Zealand.

We invite individual papers (20 minutes duration) and workshop sessions (up to 90 minutes duration).

The conference will have two main parts: Conference and Training.
