Speaking Role is a free program for people who have a disability that affects their ability to communicate. It is for people who would like to enhance their communication and social skills for volunteering, employment, and participation in their community, through the medium of theatre. The course will suit people who have some ability to communicate verbally but have difficulty in always being understood. It is led by two experienced theatre tutors.
The program will use role-play, improvisation and Playback & Forum Theatre.
The first week will involve participants being interviewed by the tutors, about their goals from the course.
Speaking Role is a project of Rebus Theatre, and is funded by private donation with support from the Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres.
