The lab

On Sundays at 5pm The Actors’ Hub comes alive as GAP students test 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! 

UP NEXT:  Sunday, 9th May

The Lab – Insane Spontaneity & Aussie Way

SUNDAY 9th May @ 5PM

The Actors Hub Studios

Tickets: @10

In INSANE SPONTANEITY, our Gap 1 and 2 students form into teams and go up against each other – in insane games of improvisation.

Nothing scripted, nothing prepared……. Just them, you helping to provide some weird challenges, and the instruction to improvise.

In THE AUSSIE WAY, the Gap 2 and 3 students and some of our graduates present monologues from Australian texts. They explore what makes Australian theatre sellable and relatable across the cultural divide. What makes Australian theatre, Australian?

As long as we keep thinking of Australian theatre as a narrow stream of tales about mateship and the outback, we restrict its capacity to help us imagine a shared present, let alone articulate an alternative future. For whatever reason, we are afraid to play.

The Gap 2 students will also present a self-devised commedia dell’arte piece.

Please Note: 

The Actors’ Hub takes the safety of its audiences, staff and students very seriously  and seating will be arranged in line with current government physical-distancing guidelines. Where necessary, we reserve the right to adjust seating selections to ensure compliance with these conditions.

For these reasons,  pre-booking is advised
