WIND callout


We seek emerging artists under 27 (performers, writers, devisers, designers, directors, film makers and content creators) to work on WIND – a devised theatre project to be presented in the City of Perth in late 2012. On Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th at King St Arts Centre, take part in a group workshop with director Patrick Downes to engage in ensemble activities, brainstorming sessions, improvisations, and games. Bring something (an audition piece, a piece of writing, a work of art, photos, or anything that demonstrates your interest and the skills you can bring to the project) and prepare a two-minute (or less)  presentation to present to the group.

Patrick Downes will see everybody who applies over these two days – no need to send anything but your name, age,  and $25 joining fee in advance. Choose either a morning or an afternoon on the Saturday or the Sunday. The following Sunday Patrick will call back all the potential candidates for a last round of activities and focussed work before choosing the members of the core ensemble.

Wind Youth Theatre productionWIND is a process which will explore that one word ‘wind’. Patrick will bring his take on that word to the work, and if you are chosen you will explore your responses to this word. As a group, the core ensemble will develop the material that will inform the performance that in late 2012 will be performed in front of a paying audience.

WAYTCo will assemble a team of experienced professionals and trained emerging artists to support Patrick and the core ensemble in the realisation of their vision. This is a great opportunity for young and emerging performers and artists to create something original, unique and special for the people of Perth.

If you’re interested in taking part in the workshops on the 23rd or 24th, send by email or phone call or post your name and your preferred time slot. Available are 9:30am-noon or 1pm-3:30pm on Saturday the 23rd or the same times on Sunday the 24th.

If you are already a member this is all you need to do. If you are not yet a WAYTCo member, download, fill out and return a membership form and pay $25 membership subscription. If you can’t afford to pay, send through a statement of support from a teacher, tutor or support worker and we will consider waiving the membership fee for a single shot at a callback. All those who are chosen to be in the core ensemble will not have to pay anything further to be involved in the project, but will agree to make themselves available to take part in the development workshops on Sundays and Tuesday evenings.
