Come learn the secrets of the stage with Dr Corinna Di Niro!
Stage Secrets is an independent theatre company in Adelaide, South Australia. We specialise in Commedia dell'Arte and its variants, as well as immersive theatre experiences that challenge the status quo. Our work is research-informed, dynamic and innovative, with strong links to the National Australian Curriculum.
“Dr. Di Niro is the most prominent and innovative practitioner and researcher in the field of Commedia dell'Arte in Australia.”
(Barry Lenny, 2020)
Our workshops are designed to build students’ knowledge and capabilities in the world of theatre. Each workshop has been designed to align with the National Australian Arts Curriculum. Students will extend their skills in creative enquiry, communication, empathy, self-confidence, cooperation, leadership and negotiation, further supporting them to think and act artistically, thus developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can be applied in all areas of learning.
“Corinna’s expert knowledge and passion for what she does is palpable and the students really fed off of that!”
(Aldo Longbardi, Wilderness School, 2019)
Have you ever thought of doing something completely different for you next corporate or team event?
“Wow! What a way to spend the day together! Corinna was an amazing teacher. She made our team feel really confident to try out acting and to perform in front of each other. Laughter really is the best medicine!”
(Thomas, HR, Adelaide 2022)
Since 2018, Corinna has been experimenting with ways to integrate immersive technology with live theatre...and she's got a TEDx talk all about it! Her mission is to enhance the audience experience to raise awareness and promote change on serious issues in our society. Her latest work, Bone Cage, deals with consent and domestic violence, and is available for bookings/touring.
Awesome show today! The additional scene at the start successfully helped highlight the public versus behind-closed-doors persona of the abuser. The use of Immersive effects and QR codes was great – it was fascinating to see the commonly submitted words and phrases. The reception by students and staff here was very positive!
