Generations Ensemble Theatre

Together with the Glenorchy City Council, the  TTC runs workshops in Glenorchy with a group of local people all aged 60+.

This group of about 15 people bring a wealth of knowledge and experiences, to work together with highly talented theatre artists, in an exchange that is culturally rich and productive.

Generations Ensemble Theatre (G.E.T.) grew out of a project opportunity within the 2009 Ten Days on the Island Festival in Hobart’s northern suburbs. The project participants were very engaged by that experience and had a strong desire to set up a permanent ongoing intergenerational theatre ensemble, accessible to a broad range of older people in the local community. They successfully applied to the Australia Council to support ongoing skills development workshops for the latter part of 2009 and early 2010. The partnership with the Tasmanian Theatre Company has continued and small scale performances have been presented around Glenorchy in conjunction with the Glenorchy City Council. We hope to continue these presentations in the future.
