Both issues align to Soul Theatre’s mission statement. Alicia Liley who perfomed this character Beth, also has acquired brain injury (ABI) from a near-fatal car accident. She saw many correlations between Beth’s and her own recovery. More »

C12 (Climamania Event Number 12) — February/March 2022

SOUL will be performing The Australian Premiere of the UK playwright Steve Waters’ The Contingency Plan  in 2022.

This script is composed of two full length plays that encapsulate various viewpoints regarding Climate Change, offering a realistic balanced portrayal of attitudes of denial and the reality of the damaging environmental circumstances exhibited by the Climate Change Crisis.

This double bill offers varied scientific opinions, media aspects and of course, the varied political attitudes apparent within today’s reality! With the finality of the public’s confusion as the situation worsens.

SOUL’s Choir, SOULISTAS!

Soulistas means zest for life, love and protection of nature, care for the oppressed and love of song and music!

“Singing is the best thing you can do for your soul”, (Rosie L.)

S.E.A.T. (SOUL’s Educational Active Theory / Team)

In 2018, SOUL developed a new educational initiative based in schools.

S.E.A.T. is SOUL’s Educational Active Theory (or Team). It aims to educate young Australians about the urgent need to address the Climate Change Crises before it’s too (d**mned) late.

The project involves a team of performing artists visiting primary and secondary schools in Victoria. SOUL initially presents a mix of short plays, videos, talks and music, then engages with students and teachers to encourage them to get creative about climate change. A week or so later, SOUL returns to workshop the results with students, leading up to a performance opportunity or expo, either in-school or in public. The form of this presentation is up to the teachers and students to decide under SOUL’s guidance and advice.

If your school would be interested in being part of S.E.A.T., please contact our Artistic Director, Alicia Liley via our Contact page.
