What's On

2020

FEBRUARY: Nobody’s Fool Theatre moved into our new premises at the old R. S. and S. Woollen Mill in Rutland St, Geelong.

FEBRUARY - JULY: Workshops continued with small numbers inside DPFC and Tarrengower prisons.

Women in Prison:

 

We have been constantly adapting to the ever-shifting landscape of the COVID time, keeping in the heart of things, staying connected, and pushing through.

With a core group of 11 women, we’ve reimagined 2019’s beloved ‘Miss It Appears We’ve Hit Some Turbulence’ adapting the play into a radio podcast for a local, national and international listening audience. As the play enters its early stages of post-production, the timeless story will be premiering in early September.

More details to come.

The Tipping Point – Post Release and Community:

One on one workshops and regular Tuesday Zoom drama workshops.

Nobody’s Fool Theatre, Geelong:

Online learning four days per week. Zoom drama/writing/music workshops.

The young people from NFT have been working on a song exploring the themes of being too young to feel old.

Losing light and I’m only 15

I should be much older the things I’ve seen

At home, online,

I’ve lost my carefree

Am I too old to be young or

Am I too young to be old

These are the questions

That my little hands hold.

This is currently being made into a video film clip.

Unapologetically Myself is a contemporary performance by young creatives encompassing drama and music. This project has evolved from a number of creative workshops led by Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company Artists, and held at Courthouse Youth Arts in Geelong.

Based on real life experiences, the story explores identity, race, gender and sexuality.  The writing and themes come directly from the young artists and touch on issues pertinent to young lives; grappling with anxiety, developing a sense of identity and finding a place of belonging.

 Who am I?
What am I supposed to be?
Am I LGBTQIA or just me?
As a child my letters were ADHD
I’ve got a bad case of Acronymia’

In 2019 the SDT team worked with the young people to remount ‘Unapologetically Myself’ and took the show on tour to regional schools and communities.
