What’s on at La Trobe Student Theatre and Film

La Trobe Student Theatre & Film (STF) is a great opportunity for students to direct, write, perform, crew, and compose for stage and screen.

Each year STF stage productions and events on the Melbourne (Bundoora) Campus, supports student-initiated projects, holds workshops to develop professional skills, and provides mentorship to emerging artists.

La Trobe Student Theatre & Film is a great way to gain skills, knowledge, and experience and connect with those who share your passion for theatre and film.

Here’s what’s coming up at STF this semester:

The Blackbird and the Whale
A Made Up Productions and La Trobe Student Theatre and Film collaboration

“That’s very beautiful.”
Rory and Cora Mulligan; they’re starting a new life, on new land. Their relationship is frayed. The Blackbird and the Whale; they’re old souls to the land. They are watching, learning, and changing.

It’s all new and it’s intriguing. And now it starts to stir. The weather, the elements, and their emotions: unbalanced. Then the storm hits. They begin to find comfort in new places and pain in the familiar. An exploration of the fine line between love and cruelty, freedom and possession and begs the question why are we so cruel to each other?

“Not really. It ends sadly.”

CW: This show is recommended for ages 16+. It includes depictions of abuse, depictions of violence, coarse language, flashing lights, and loud sounds.
