The lab

On the last Sunday each month The Actors’ Hub comes alive as GAP students try out their skills on an intimate live audience 

The Lab is the engine room where students are brewing their craft in a live professional setting. Audience members get to experience a different performance each month as various skills of the craft are explored. 

Being part of our Lab audience has so many benefits, not just for students but for our performing arts community in Perth, as we all play a role in developing our future superstars!

 BodySpeak, Different Ways and An Evening of Song

Film Night

Yes, we are aware this is not the last Sunday of the month, but we missed December and January – for reasons such as Semester break and Christmas, etc. cry – so to make up for it, we are doing two Labs this month!!

First, on February 11th:

In the first Lab for 2024, the Gap students present a selection of activities showcasing what they have been exploring over the past month or so.

The students perform BODYSPEAK – a physical exploration of relationships, investigating the idea that the body speaks what the mind cannot. The students explore how we communicate our deep desires and emotions through physical movement.

Then they explore how texts can be interpreted in many DIFFERENT WAYS – which is why we never get tired seeing different productions of “Hamlet”.  Seeing how different actors and directors interpret Hamlet’s character.

In AN EVENING OF SONG, students explore the “inner game of music”. For many of our students this is the first time that they will sing in front of an audience. So they need to use their “true potential minus any interference that hinders them”.

“The Inner Game is that which takes place in the mind, played against such elusive opponents as nervousness, self-doubt, and fear of failure.” – Tim Gallwey

So come along and see all the Gap students showcasing different formats of theatre.

Tickets are  $10 through Trybooking

Then, on February 18th:

FILM ON STAGE – the students perform monologues both on screen and on stage at the same time. So you see them live, performing in front of the camera, and also see that projected on the screen behind them.

24-HOUR FILM PROJECT – over the last weeks of 2023, the students were out and about, working day and night, learning and developing the skills and techniques behind film-making. While the Gap 1s and 2s acted in front of the camera, the Gap 3s directed.  Everyone got involved working behind the scenes – and they had 24 hours to put it together.
In the second Lab of 2024, you will be able to see the results of all that work. There were 2 films made by 2 different teams and you get to vote on your preference.

There will also be a self-devised piece based on the Realism genre.

So come down to the Actors’ Hub in East Perth, and see something different from our amazingly talented Gap students.

All this for just $10 through Trybooking.
