As drama educators, we all know a purpose-built theatre is not needed in order to put on a performance with our students. This has many benefits, particularly for schools with limited resources and/or budgets.
A colleague recently told me a story about a theatre show she saw in Melbourne performed in a shipping container. How the hell a cast of actors and audience fit inside a shipping container, I will never know! (I think this was the inaugural Container Festival last year by Monash University Theatre Students <MUST>).
Wouldn’t it be great to hear stories from others about the most unusual or creative spaces they have either been in as an audience member or decided to use with their students for a play? Comment below if you have an example.
