Who:All workshops are open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children (from 10 years up), teenagers and adults
When:Tuesday 21 through Thursday 23 February - On Friday the 24th of February, Kevin will host the ‘ ACT Deadly Funny Comedy Heats’
Kevin Kropinyeri is well-known through his work with NITV’s Express Yourself, the Aboriginal Comedy All Stars and the Deadly Awards at the Sydney Opera House.
In a series of two-hour workshops with school groups, community organisations and individuals, Kevin will explore the art of comedy and pass his performance skills on to young and old.
CEO, Rauny Worm says she is thrilled to have Kevin in Canberra working with the community. “Kevin will work with his participants to enhance presentation skills, encourage the unique story-telling abilities of individuals and build confidence and inner strength – qualities that make a “deadly” performer.
As a high-energy performer, Kevin is sharp, likeable, silly and measured; mixing keen observational stand-up with joyfully ridiculous physical comedy.
His professional performance skills will be balanced with personal stories of growing up, marriage and the particular, absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal family man,
Kevin will be conducting workshops for individuals, organisations and schools from Tuesday 21 through Thursday 23 February.
On Friday the 24th of February, Kevin will host the ‘ ACT Deadly Funny Comedy Heats’, giving those adults, brave enough to take the stage at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre, a chance to strut their stuff and represent the ACT in Melbourne Comedy Festival’s prestigious comedy competition.
Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service, West Belconnen Child and Family Centre and Gold Creek High are some of the workplaces he will visit and there are still a few places available.
