About the Program
Driven by the sharing of Noongar language and culture, the program provides participants with the opportunity to receive intensive development in theatre making, performance and language skills at a professional level.
Successful participants partake in an intense series of workshops and rehearsals leading to a public performance opportunity.
As a member of the Ngalaka Daa Ensemble, participants gain access to training with industry leaders including performance preparation, vocal techniques, movement techniques / physicality, Noongar language (comprehension and articulation), acting techniques (various forms and styles), monologues, dialogues and ensemble work, embodiment of text and Noongar physical theatre processes.
In addition to providing people with opportunities to participate in the arts, the Ngalaka Daa Ensemble is an avenue to ensure the sustainability of one of the oldest languages in the world, promote cultural awareness and create a greater sense of connection between participants and the communities that they live in.
