Sparc Theatre

Sparc Theatre

Sparc Theatre is a community-based performing arts program for adults with disability, where participants explore and develop skills in drama, acting, singing, improvisation, script, dance, movement and choreography in a socially creative and culturally inclusive, safe and welcoming environment.

Sparc Theatre participants are also provided opportunities to perform in productions, films and live events, collaborating with other professional artists and companies in a variety of settings, public and online domains e.g. festivals, theatre venues, community & industry events.

Sparc Theatre meets one day a week on Fridays from 10.00am to 1.00pm at the wheelchair accessible Baxter Hall at Christ Church Community Centre, corner Acland and Eildon St, St. Kilda during Victorian School terms (see 2022 & 2023 Term Dates).

Sparc Theatre is managed and supported by highly qualified disability and inclusive arts practitioners who provide specialised approaches for participants to increase, enable and empower their community & social participation, peer support & networks, self-care & self-expression, communication and confidence, learning and mobility.

The team is comprised of Geoffrey Thorsen (Artistic Director), Disability Arts Support Workers- Angelina Lodge and Marjetka McMahon-Krizanic, Nilgun Guven (CEO & Program Manager), and often work with invited guest artists specialising in different artforms also.

“At Sparc Theatre we explore ideas & have the opportunity to meet other people & to enjoy ourselves & each other.

It brings people together, to collaborate, use our imagination and is a forum for our respective perceptual styles.

It can be infectious and gives us the courage to try new things and not worry. 

Sparc is an excellent program and we look forward to it each week.”
