Overview

HWY SKILLS LAB: Technical Production

This two-day skills lab provides practical insight into technical production in theatre, across sound, lighting, set & costume design and production management, as well strategies for working from concept to realisation on new Australian work. Across four specifically designed workshops, creatives from the Brisbane sector share their approach and offer practical insights into working with theatre directors and creative teams.

Make the most of the workshop on offer and commit to the entire package across two days, or partake in individual workshops at your leisure. These four 3-hour sessions will give you just the hit you’re after to refresh, re-invigorate, or expand your technical production skillset in 2018.

# 1: Sound Design & Composition with Wil Hughes
Thursday 15 March, 10AM – 1PM

Using La Boite & Dead Puppet Society’s critically acclaimed Laser Beak Man as a case study, Canada will explore what it takes to excel at production management in our unique Roundhouse Theatre – from schedules, to cross-departmental communication, to budgets, timelines, obscure props, technical rehearsals, and everything in between!
