Arts Break, Artists, Activities, Australia from the New Victory Theatre

New Victory Arts Break: Explore a World of Art

Discover Australia!

This season, we visit six continents to check in on a few of our favorite artist friends. First stop: Australia! For the next four weeks, we join the immersive theater company Slingsby to learn about their community and creative practice—and make art of our own along the way. Now, let's explore the history of the land, traditions (like teatime!) and even the animals of Australia!


Jacqy from Slingsby!

Meet Awesome, Aussie Artists

Join Jacqy, from Australia's Slingsby (The Young King, 2018) as she as she introduces you to her off-the-grid lifestyle (including an outback outhouse). Then, discover what some of our other favorite Australian artists are up to!

Act Wild!

Lizards & kangaroos & koala bears, oh my! Show off your amazing acting skills as New Victory Teaching Artist Ugo teaches you how to transform into a wild animal. Then, see if your friends and family can correctly guess which creature you are!

It’s 6 o'clock somewhere (Australia's traditional tea hour) which means it’s time to plan your perfect tea party—real or imaginary! Who would you invite? What’s on the menu? And don’t forget to put your pinky up.
