The Clore Learning Centre is next to the new Dorfman Theatre and encompasses two new purpose-built education spaces:

  • The first floor Duffield Studio is a large workshop space, inspired by our backstage workshops and designed to introduce participants to different aspects of theatre production, including scene-painting, prop-making, design and costume.
  • The ground floor Cottesloe Room provides space for talks, study days and courses, archive screenings and small group workshops. The Cottesloe Room also provides spill-over foyer space and is flexible enough to allow occasional use for functions and hospitality.

The new first floor mezzanine level created in the Dorfman Theatre foyer provides break-out space for the Learning Centre.

Refurbishments in the Dorfman auditorium also equip it for daytime educational use.
