Performing Arts Education
Welcome to LAF - the Lyttelton Arts Factory - performing arts education programme.
Why the Lyttelton Arts Factory?
A factory creates stuff. We want to create performance. We do not want to separate the arts but integrate them into all elements of performance. LAF is a space where theatre, dance, music and circus can all happen.
Our performance education programme strives to develop skills in the areas of acting, voice, music & movement and apply these skills in projects and productions throughout the year.
Study at LAF
LAF offers you the opportunity to study in a professional theatre environment with the critically acclaimed practitioners Director Mike Friend and Musician Carmel Courtney.
At its core, Lyttelton Arts Factory is a practical expression of Mike Friend's belief that the arts should not be separated, and that theatre and the arts are for the many not the few.
