Join Mighty development

Bathurst-based Lingua Franca Dance & Physical Theatre is looking for young and emerging actors, dancers and performers to join in the creative development of their next work MIGHTY.

Dec Mon 5th – Friday 9th, 10am – 5pm
Dec Mon 12th – Sat 17th, 10am – 5pm

Where: Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre

Drawing on physical theatre, dance and verbatim theatre, this new work is an exploration of strength in our modern times. In a world of aggression, brutality and decisiveness, where is the space for grace, vulnerability and softness in the way we lead, and how relate to each other and our world?

This development period will involve exploring Lingua Franca’s process of combing text and movement, drawing from contemporary dance, Viewpoints & Suzuki actor training and task based devising around physical & text based material.

Young and emerging participants are invited to work with the company of professional performers to explore their training and process, and help develop the work in the first week – December 5th – 9th.

Some young artists that can commit full time to rehearsals in the second week will be invited to join the company in the lead up to a short informal showing of the work in progress on Saturday December 17th.

To register your interest, or for further details, email Adam and Alison at

Lingua Franca’s ‘Mighty’ is auspiced by Arts OutWest, funded by the Regional Arts Fund.
