Artmedia News

Welcome to the June 2006 edition of the Artmedia physical theatre newsletter, your e-publication with an Australasian focus and a global perspective, now in its fifth year and reaching over 2,100 subscribers, with a further 5,300 on related Yahoo lists.

In the Sponsorship this month, we welcome back Arts Hub, Australia's only online arts employment resource, giving you all the up-to date job information you need to stay ahead of the pack. Join Arts Hub now and be included in the Winter Winners Campaign and the draw for an all expenses paid holiday for 2 people to Club Med Lindeman Island!

I view this newsletter a little like street theatre... at the end of the day you are standing with your hand on your heart and your hat in your hand, you've got a fifty dollar note from a fan, a few twenties, some tens, and hopefully lots of fives, and then the gold coins, and yet probably half your audience has walked away without paying, depending on their mood and finances, and it still works out fine for everyone... In the same way, if you value this newsletter, one way you can give something back is to take a Feature, Special Feature or a Sponsorship in the publication, and we thank those that do, and encourage you to support them.

Another way to participate is to take a page on the Artmedia site, or possibly buy a paperback copy of Angels Can Fly , or do a workshop. In the Angels Can Fly section, we continue a series of excerpts from the book, with another of the exercises, one that you can each try in your own time. And in the Playspace section we have information on the September Clown Intensive in Sydney, and the Clown Summer School Retreat in the beautiful Coromandel Peninsular in New Zealand.

This month I also offer a new way for the more wealthy amongst you to both support me, and also potentially earn good returns, by investing in my film, Moontan, a Clown's Story. The casting for this production is now closed and we are in the process of selecting our lead actors. Thanks to everyone who applied. Our Production Manager, Lisa, has started work, and we have cast the support roles through local auditions in Wanganui. The crew, script and location are also all in place. Investments of as little as NZ$1,000 now have the chance to earn this investment back early, from DVD sales, and also to take 1% of the profits from television and ancillary sales, in addition to receiving an autographed DVD and invitations to screenings at film festivals. Find more information at: www.artmedia.net.nz/investment.htm

In the Special Features, Australian theatre ensemble, Frank Theatre, and Theatre Initiatives UK join forces to present Hamlet Stooged! a new play by Brisbane writer John Nobbs, to be shown at Hoxton Hall in London. The company will also be teaching a ten day workshop in the UK, offering the Suzuki Actor Training Method within Frank's own hybrid framework.

In the networking, the Angry Mime company have moved their monthly open performance event in Brisbane, Australia, to a new venue, while in Hong Kong, the International Drama in Education Association is calling for performance work for the IDEA2007 Congress, and in the UK, the Generating Company are seeking Strap, Hoop, Cloudswing and Acrobat/Bungee artists for a Halloween show to be staged at Universal Studios, Osaka, Japan. Applications close at the end of this week for these 18 positions in an ensemble show featuring 124 performers.

As I predicted at the ACAPTA Conference in Geelong last year, 'if Australia didn't get it together to support our clown tradition with appropriate training, other countries would steal the march on us...' and now in California, in a new collaboration between the Experimental Performance Institute at New College of California and the Clown Conservatory at San Francisco Circus Center, an 'MA/MFA in Creative Inquiry, with an emphasis in Experimental Performance and Clowning', has been created. Yay! Also in America, the School for Mime Theatre has information on a professional two week Summer Seminar in Gambier, Ohio.

In the UK we have a call for submissions of artists' film and video for Short Circuits Interrupted, a Sheffield based project to be screened on the 12th July, and a call for contributions to Perform magazine, a new free print magazine which is also available to download. And the Brighton & Hove Arts Commission are seeking a new outdoor performance piece that can be performed in and around Brighton & Hove in September. The commission is for £7,500 and proposals are to be submitted by this Friday, 23rd June.

And finally, after a first meeting in Paris in 2005, Clowns Without Borders held their second international meeting last month in Barcelona. The two days of debate and discussion brought further coordination between the Clowns Without Borders of the many different countries and reinforced collaboration between Clowns sans frontières in France, Payasos sin fronteras in Spain, Clowns et magiciens sans frontières in Belgium and Clowns utanGränser in Sweden. Also present were the North American organizations from United States and Quebec.

We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the physical theatre community, so send us information for inclusion in this newsletter, and please also forward this to someone else who may be interested.

Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide, by Alan Clay

horizontal rule

Angels Can Fly is now in over 100 Public Libraries in America, Australia and New Zealand, and we are steadily supplying requests for the free e-Book version. Yes this is still available (but includes none of the over 70 photographs which the paperback contains) at www.alanclay.com  Or you can now go to a new service Google Books, http://books.google.com , where you can search for the book, and then search within it for your particular interests, and read a limited number of pages free on line.

This month we continue a series of excerpts from the book, with another of the clown exercises, one that you can each try in your own time.

Observing Silence

This exercise requires us to undertake three days of silence, during which we go about our normal daily lives, but without any talking. This gives us an opportunity to observe others, and our surroundings, from a new perspective. It is quite good to put others more at ease by indicating the exercise we are undertaking by wearing a badge, or carrying a written note, stating that: "I am observing silence". The exercise demands the development of non-verbal communication skills, to deal with the need of negotiating our everyday world without words. We can also write notes in response to questions or specific communication needs if we must, but as much as possible we want to try and converse physically with gestures and physical expression.

Coaching Tips
This is one of the strongest exercises that I recall from the Fools School, that I attended in Stockholm in 1977, taught by Michael Lynch. As much as possible we should maintain our normal daily routine, and pretty soon we start to see things from a different perspective. The best part is that after the initial interest in our exercise, others often allow our participation in a situation without expecting a response from us. This means that we get to be there, like a fly on the wall, without the demands of normal interaction, which gives a wonderful opportunity to observe our lives from a new perspective.

Angels can Fly includes a mix of fiction which follows the adventures of ten clown characters, some personal clown anecdotes from clowns from around the world, a total of 50 practical clown exercises, and some theory on the nature of modern clown. The book is available on order through bookshops and online stores in New Zealand, Australia, America and England. Order your copy today. Find it on Amazon by following this link:

"Clown is a fascinating, diverse, complex and exciting art form, which has existed around the planet for thousands of years. Like any art form it has to evolve to stay relevant to the culture nurturing it, and at the same time, and by its very nature, clown teases and turns upside down the cultural patterns and boundaries around us."

Playspace: Clown Intensive in Sydney, Australia, and Summer School Retreat in Sandy Bay, New Zealand

horizontal rule

Alan's workshops are consistently described as challenging and fun. "Alan keeps you on the edge of the unknown in his teaching work, so you are always comfortable, but always discovering new things. As the work progresses, this process leads to a sense of freedom which produces better and better performing work."

One Week Clown Intensive with Alan Clay, September 11 to 15. (5 day) Earlybird Aus$500 (by August 11th) Aus$600 (full)

Clown is an art form which has existed for thousands of years, and undergone a revolution in recent times, as it made the leap back from circus into theatre, giving birth to 'new clown' and physical theatre. This course takes a broad view of clown, which allows students room to develop their own unique style. Each day starts with a yoga warm up, followed by exercises to develop physical and emotional expression, and improvisational exercises to develop comic timing and audience rapport. This workshop will also include opportunities for those who want to create clown performance material. We often have ideas or images of what we want to do, but we need a structure to help us develop these. This workshop is designed to help with this process.

Clown Summer School Retreat , Wednesday January 10 to Sunday 14, (5 day) Sandy Bay, Coromandel Peninsular, New Zealand. Including 6 nights accommodation, Price Buster NZ$520 (by 1st Sept), Earlybird NZ$620 (by 1st Nov), NZ$720 (full) A NZ$100 deposit is payable to hold a place.

The Clown Retreat will be held in a secluded studio by the beach at Sandy Bay, at the top of the Coromandel Peninsular, about four hours drive from Auckland, New Zealand. The fees include six nights accommodation with kitchen facilities. The Clown Retreat is timed to be held just before the world buskers Festival in Christchurch for those coming for the summer season in New Zealand. The Retreat will provide an opportunity to reconnect with that playful, inquisitive, cheeky, clown spirit in a beautiful outdoor setting.

"In the best clown tradition Alan held up a window-mirror for us to step through and reflect on the patterns, habits and rituals of our days... It was funny, moving and excellent theatre." NZ Herald.

Special Feature: Australian Theatre Ensemble Frank Theatre, and Theatre Initiatives UK present Hamlet Stooged! in Hoxton Hall, London, plus a UK Workshop

horizontal rule

Australian theatre ensemble, Brisbane-based Frank Theatre, and Theatre Initiatives UK join forces to present Hamlet Stooged! a new play by Brisbane writer John Nobbs with a combined cast of London actors -Nina Fog, Dan Canham and William Dickie, plus London-based Australian, Fran Barbe - alongside Frank Theatre members.

This EuroFrank presentation of director Jacqui Carroll's production of Hamlet Stooged! will be shown in Hoxton Hall, London on July 20 & 21 2006 at 8pm

Brisbane-based Frank Theatre delivers innovative, visually stunning theatre and manages to do it with minimal cast and minimal props specializing in "Suitcase" theatre, where the whole show can be packed in one or two suitcases and taken around the world. This is the intention with Hamlet Stooged!, previewed in a sneak preview season at The Brisbane Powerhouse in January. Directed by Jacqui Carroll, this production is a modern, urban update on the classic Hamlet, focusing on his madness and inner turmoil through a series of bizarre dreams and nightmares.

"Somewhat complex at times, it reminds me of the David Lynch film Mulholland Drive, in a disconnected and sensual way... Ira Seidenstein draws on his Cirque du Soleil background as the Russian Joker and Leah Shelton is sensational as the Gothic Cabaret style Ophelia. She is sensual, erotic and quite mad, delivering a very burlesque performance of her character including a semi strip tease. It is worth seeing this production for her performance alone. The show includes modern music such as Public Image Limited, Tokyo Shock Boys and the original sixties version of the Locomotion."   Lisa Lamb, Tsunami 2006

UK Workshop

From July 10 to 19 In Frank Theatre will conduct a Ten Day Intensive at the Central School of Speech and Drama, Swiss Cottage, London. This workshop offers the highly regarded Suzuki Actor Training Method within Frank's own hybrid framework, Frank/Suzuki Performance Aesthetics.

Frank Theatre's workshops are aimed at students of theatre studies and professionals that are interested in seeking exciting cross-cultural training experiences. Students of dance who wish to extend their skills base will also find this study challenging and intriguing. This course of study is for those in the community who are expressly interested in a performance study course based on Eastern principles. Tadashi Suzuki, creator of the Suzuki method, has granted International Trainer status in his Method to course directors John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll.

Through group training participants will envelop themselves in a collective energy and are introduced to the concept that the body of the actor must first learn to occupy stage space. Visible energy and measurable muscular tasks are asked of the participants. Clear physical demonstration and practical assistance, the hallmark of Frank Theatre's highly regarded workshops, will be available through Frank Theatre company members who will be present at each session.

Frankly Acting

Recently published Frankly Acting, written by co-director/actor/trainer/writer John Nobbs, outlines the development and application of the Frank/Suzuki Performance Aesthetics. Australian critic and theatre writer Martin Buzacott says of Frankly Acting: John Nobbs' Frankly Acting is the first Australian book espousing a uniquely homegrown theatrical performance theory. As Grotowski did in Poland and Artaud in France, Nobbs has articulated an Australian performance aesthetic which revivifies in a contemporary context the theatrical traditions of its geographic region. With illuminating references to popular culture, his Suzuki-inspired method is based on rigorous theatrical discipline, but with an ever-present and distinctively Australian sense of humour. Frankly Acting grounds its theory in the artistic heritage of the Asia-Pacific, with a theatrical resonance which is universal.

"It was, to say the least, a most thought-provoking and stimulating read, a treatise that elucidates the modus operandi of your company in a clear and exciting way. It was an utterly good read from start to finish... the style of reading was (aptly) frank and refreshingly non-academic... a case where the form really fit the content, and every page had me aching to see another performance of FRANK!"  Jon Brokering  Assoc.Professor Drama&Theatre Hosei University Tokyo

This unique actor study offers an intense body/voice experience fully incorporating the Suzuki Actor Training Method bedded in the deep philosophical and creative framework of the Frank/Suzuki Performance Aesthetics. This 21st century approach to the acquisition of performance skills is a new paradigm which enriches the participant/student because of its holistic approach.

"Outdoor Performance Commission - Brighton. The Brighton & Hove Arts Commission's making a difference programme and Everyday Sport wish to commission a new outdoor performance piece. The commission is part of the 'Say Aah' arts and health strand. The commission is to create a performance piece that can be performed in and around Brighton & Hove on Car Free day, Friday, September 22nd 2006. The performance should encourage people to think about the benefits of a more healthy lifestyle with particular emphasis on integrating exercise into everyday activities like walking to work. It should be entertaining and original, designed to gather a large audience with the ability to catch attention from passers by. The performance should be performed at least three times and take place in at least two different public outdoor locations in the city. We anticipate that the performance will be between 30 and 45 minutes. The performance will take place on the same day as Bicycle Ballet, one of a number of new events created by the Arts Commission following a city-wide call for ideas in 2005. Performances that can be repeated/ toured to other venues will be favoured. Artists are invited to submit a short proposal including: A brief outline of your idea, Information as to where you would hope to perform, performance times and a rough performance schedule, An outline budget. The Commission is for £7,500. All staging and marketing costs should be included. Proposals are to be submitted by 5pm on Friday 23rd June to: Donna Close, Arts Development Officer, Arts and Creative Industries Unit, Brighton & Hove City Council, King's House, Room G32, Grand Avenue, Hove BN32LS, England."

"The Clowns Without Borders unite their efforts After a first meeting in Paris in 2005, the Clowns Without Borders held their second international meeting May 1 and 2 of this year in Barcelona.   The two days of debate and discussion brought about further coordination between the Clowns Without Borders of the many different countries. This meeting reinforced collaboration between Clowns sans frontières (France), Payasos sin fronteras (Spain), Clowns et magiciens sans frontières (Belgium) and Clowns utanGränser (Sweden). Also present were the North American organizations (United States and Quebec). The principal reason behind this collaboration is to discuss experiences and working methods so that activities may be better coordinated and a common frame of reference defined. This collaboration also aims to focus its need-based efforts on particular countries. Therefore, following a first mission organized by the French association in Sudan in March 2006, a two to three year project associating the different Clowns Without Borders in Europe will be held to benefit the refugees and displaced people of Sudan. The next international Clowns Without Borders meeting will be held in Stockholm on May 11-13, 2007 in order to assess measures taken in 2006 and define new common objectives for 2007."
