Description

You might study accounting, but love performing, or are just looking for a place to meet other like-minded creatives.
The Troupe is the umbrella name for every student interested in all aspects of the diverse Performing Arts Program delivered by RMIT Link Arts and Culture in 2017.
There are a range of performing arts events and activities where you can participate as an actor, a stagehand, a director or in production and lighting - all creative talents are sought.
The Troupe offers vibrant opportunities for students to belong and to create.


Current Programs


Snatches
Snatches, simply, is a night of short theatre, dance, music, poems and short films, all written, directed and performed by RMIT students. A platform for hundreds of diverse new short works, it is the springboard for emerging playwrights, wordsmiths and 'give-it-a-goers', who bravely share their words to be spoken and performed for the first time in the public arena. Fledgling performers take flight and realise their voice in an environment of pure support and encouragement. Performed as part of the acclaimed Melbourne Fringe Festival, it is an amazing opportunity to be part of a work class festival. Applications for writers to submit are open.




Intro to Improv
A relaxed weekly drop-in class run by celebrated Melbourne comedian Andy Balloch (The Sparrow Men).
This FREE workshop is open to anyone and everyone, and will help you build confidence, performance skills and quick thinking.




Clowning and Physical Comedy Masterclass
Join comedians and theatre makers Elizabeth Davie and Shannan Lim to explore clowning and physical comedy in these fun weekend workshops.




The Fourth Wall
The Fourth Wall is a program for students interested in performing and theatre, to get a chance to be a part of the audience at professional productions running in Melbourne throughout the year.
These shows can be expensive though, so PAC subsidises the costs, offering more than 50% off the normal concession prices of tickets. Runs approximately once a month.
