    As part of the City of Sydney Library school holiday program, learn storytelling skills through the art of character making. 2 facilitators from Matriark Theatre, lead this hands-on drama skills workshop designed to help build confidence.

    All these things can help to create a memorable character. Over 2 hours, you’ll get to explore them all and transform yourself for the stage. Using physical theatre and physical comedy, participants will work with a skilled theatre teacher, playing and experimenting to turn themselves into their own unique characters.

    Matriark’s amazing teaching-artists are skilled at physical theatre and will have you rolling, falling and laughing the whole time. This workshop will harness the energy and vibrancy of participants while gently encouraging the shy and inexperienced. This unforgettable theatre experience will end with our student storytellers putting on a showcase for parents and carers in the last 10 minutes of the workshop.

    The City of Sydney joins forces with Musica Viva to bring you a series of free musical workshops for kids at Green Square Library.

    These fun music workshops for primary school-aged students are designed to develop a love of music. No matter what their musical experience, these interactive performances will challenge, delight and enrich.

    Dynamic woodwind ensemble, Arcadia Winds, use the clarinet, bassoon and flute to show children how to use their breath and their bodies to make musical instruments vibrate and come alive. Their infectious love of music ignites every workshop performance.

    Children will get to experience all the fun of a Musica Viva in Schools ensemble at Green Square Library in this free workshop

    Suitable for kids of all skill levels and ages 8 to 12 years. This free event has limited capacity, so bookings are recommended. Children will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
    Green Square Library is wheelchair friendly.
