SO let me introduce myself,
My name is Henri and I have been working in theatre both on and off stage as an actor, director, producer and dramaturg.
I have also been teaching HSC Drama and VET Entertainment since both courses were introduced to the HSC, as well as working on syllabus and HSC Examination Committees.
I also have extensive experience in large productions, including the Rock Challenge both here and in the USA, The Sydney Olympics, Pacific School Games and love taking students out of their comfort zones and exposing them to as many professional experiences, through theatrical competitions and more importantly performance opportunities.
We have an extensive program for students, including Ensembles CaSPA Live, "Let's Act" a day of experiencing all that Drama has to offer. Add to this the new Regional touring squads, where you can tour your performance, and you can see there is a great deal on offer.
We also have available for both students and teachers from K-12 various mentoring programs, and we aim to help you to give you greater opportunities within your schools and beyond.
For those who love to act, you need to take risks, listen and be organised, but more importantly - COMMITTED.
For those who wish to combine their acting with script-writing, be prepared to write lots of drafts, to explore to research, to experiment and to workshop.
Remember- everything we do theatrically lives and breathes and it is always fluid and we as creative spirits give life to scripts, ideas and to creative playbuilding.
At CaSPA we aim to give you the skills, in a safe working space, with professionals - to help you move into the professional sphere-the sphere of life!
"If you are searching for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror"
I can wait to work with you all.
