|DramaWest STATE CONFERENCE 2022|
|Breath: inspiration, transformation, expression|
This year, DramaWest is returning to a long awaited face-to-face Conference at Perth College, Mt Lawley. The Conference will have some sessions that may be live-streamed or pre-recorded.
This year’s conference theme foregrounds and explores the central role of breath in our work, lives and community as Drama educators and practitioners. Breath provides the foundation on which we build our performance work – supporting the voice, bringing the body into alignment, maintaining focus and control, and acting as a mechanism to bring us into unity and rhythm with one another. Breath can be calming, energising, motivating, connecting. The events of the past few years have limited our opportunities to come together, to breathe freely and connect in ways we may have taken for granted. So this year, our intention at DramaWest is to bring our focus back to that essential, foundational aspect of our lives and work – the breath.
We invite you to join us from the many First Nations lands on which you work and live, to gather at Perth College on Saturday 3rd December, and to engage with the theme ‘Breath – inspiration, transformation, expression.
