WAAPA’s graduating performance-makers hit The Blue Room Theatre stage at full tilt in a mini-festival of short works.
TILT is an annual mini festival of theatre. Nine diverse theatre pieces introduce the next generation of performance makers. Treadmills, wheelbarrows, and miniature houses transport audiences to extraordinary worlds, from a seaside town to an underground colony and into outer space.
TILT provides an exciting opportunity for audiences to engage with new ideas and fresh faces in the theatre world. The graduating class of WAAPA’s Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) students majoring in Performance Making present self-devised works over a two-week program at The Blue Room Theatre.
In Paradise six desperate souls begin to rot as they sweat for forgiveness.

WAAPA’s BPA Performance Making course prepares independent, self-reliant and entrepreneurial artists to be the initiators of their own work. Students are encouraged to experiment with form and are equipped with a broad range of skills from acting, movement and voice work to puppetry, directing and writing.
