Welcome to the August 2011 edition of the Artmedia physical theatre news, your e-publication with an Australasian focus and a global perspective, now in its tenth year and reaching over 2,500 subscribers. This newsletter is an occasional publication which we put out when there is demand from Sponsors and Feature advertisers and we invite you to support the publication by contacting us about promoting your work.

In the Sponsorship this month we welcome Total Theatre, the premier physical theatre school in Perth, Australia, run by international performer Annie Stainer. The school boasts some of the best specialist teachers and practitioners in the profession and their patron is director, writer and actor Steven Berkoff. They offer a variety of courses which start in September from 4 weeks to 3 months covering a range of skills including Mime, Dance, Feldenkrais, Improvisation and Circus Arts.

The best deal on my new three week 'Modern Clown' Summer School, to be held in January next year, is coming up at the end of this month. We can be a little flexible with the deadline, but we do need to get deposits in to confirm places. We still have one scholarship available to a 'serious clown student', which brings the cost down considerably.

In the Features we have information on Clare Bartholomew & Derek Ives two week clown and physical comedy course in Melbourne, Australia. Designed for experienced performers with a variety of performance backgrounds, participants will find their own ‘clown’ relationships and characters and discover different techniques that work for them. This intensive workshop runs November 14th - 25th.

Also featured is Juggling With Finesse, a workshop with Kit Summers, the author of the book Juggling with Finesse. A world-class juggler and performer since 1977, Kitt will show you how to put together a great show and how to make money with your performing. The workshop is September 27-28 in Melbourne.

International clown Martin Ewen has information on his new book, Panto Damascus - One Clown's Alphabet. He has compiled a global alphabet of short stories of his experiences in towns and cities covering over two decades and it is now available as a Kindle download or in hardcopy.

Butterfly Crush, my first feature film, has received 3 'Best Feature Drama' awards at film festivals in the States over the past couple of months and I have more information in the feature below. Casting has starting on my next film, True Believers, and I am looking for a female clown/magician for one scene in the film. Anyone interested in auditioning for this role should drop me an email and you can find more information on my film projects at www.artmedia.net.nz.

In Networking we have information on auditions being held by the New Zealand School of Dance in Wellington. These are for students wanting to attend classes next year. Application forms can be downloaded and auditions will be held in October. In Australia, the Dinosaur Show, a family show which tours schools, is looking for 3 puppet actors. They are required to operate a number of different puppets, do sound effects and make set changes. Preview shows start in October.

The Sydney Fringe needs willing and enthusiastic volunteers. If you're not already involved, this is your chance to be a part of the festival and they promise that "it’s probably the most fun you can have without getting paid!" Also in Sydney, Jewelz A Hoopz is holding a weekend hula hoop retreat in November and offering a range of workshops, including hoop yoga and acrobalance for hoopers. The Early Bird price runs until Aug 31.

Also in Australia, the Canberra Playback Theatre is looking for new members. If you are interested, they will be holding open rehearsals from August 10th - September 21st. They are keen to get new people who have a variety of skills, life experience and interests. While in the US, the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts is seeking an Aerial Instructor to begin teaching in September 2011. The position requires an Intermediate to Advanced Level of skill and candidates should have considerable experience in both performing and teaching aerials.

In the UK, London youth theatre Oily Cart are holding auditions for a puppeteer and a black female performer for a new interactive immersive adventure show for young kids. The application deadline is August 22nd. The Hèlikos School in Florence, Italy is holding an admissions Workshop for anyone interested in getting to know more about the school or thinking about applying for the upcoming training. The workshop runs October 3rd to 8th.

We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the physical theatre community, so promote your event or project by taking a Feature or a Sponsorship in this newsletter, and please also forward this to someone else who may be interested.

Playspace: 'Modern Clown' Summer School with Alan Clay, January 2012 - Wanganui, New Zealand

horizontal rule

The Price Buster deadline for the Modern Clown Summer School is coming up at the end of this month. We can be a little flexible with the deadline, but we do need to get deposits in to confirm places. We still have one scholarship available to a serious student, which brings the cost down by NZ$300.

10am - 4pm Monday to Friday, January 23rd - February 10th (3-weeks accommodation, 15 work days, no training on weekends)

Reconnect with the playful, inquisitive, cheeky, clown spirit in a centrally heated studio space with adjoining dormitory accommodation, overlooking the mouth of the Wanganui river. This is a new course led by Alan Clay at his retreat centre in New Zealand.

Each day will start with a yoga warm up and participants will work physically to free themselves from patterns and to connect with their emotions. Clown is empathic, 'feeling with' the audience, and it is also playful, open to the impulses in each moment, and this workshop will train and develop these skills through improvisation exercises. Street theatre has informed and assisted the development of modern clown, and participants will take exercises from the studio and work at street-cafe's to develop interactive audience skills. It's easy and fun.

The summer school is aimed at those with a professional interest in clown. It is suitable both for beginners and for those with experience, and it functions best with this mix in the class. There will be a minimum of four and maximum of eight on the workshop. The residential nature of the summer school provides a relaxed atmosphere and secluded environment which means that students get more out of the contact hours and can also process and discuss the work outside of the class.

The summer school runs 10am - 4pm Monday to Friday from January 23rd - February 10th 2012. Participants will have the weekends free and the studio will be available for individual work. The studio is within reach of breathtaking west coast beaches, bush walks and jet boat or canoe expeditions, but still handy to good coffee and all facilities.

Fees: NZ$1100 Price Buster (by August 31st) NZ$1300 Earlybird (by November 1st) and NZ$1600 Full. A NZ$200 deposit to hold a place. (All fees and deposits are non-refundable). Fees include 20 nights accommodation (from January 22nd - February 10th inclusive) with kitchen facilities.

Scholarships: A limited number of scholarships are available which offer the course for NZ$800 (until August 31st). These are available to those serious students who need financial assistance. Email us with information on your work.

Enrolment: Send an email to: clown@artmedia.com.au to hold a place or make enquiries about this workshop.

Feature: Feature Film Butterfly Crush Receives Awards

Alan Clay's first feature film Butterfly Crush has achieved a number of notable successes and is now available on DVD and in the States as an Amazon Instant Video.

The film recently won an Accolade Award of Merit in the States and Amelia Shankley won the Accolade Award of Excellence for Best Supporting Actor. These awards are based in California.

It screened last month at the Anthem Film Festival in Las Vegas where it received the 'Best International Narrative Feature' award. They called Butterfly Crush "an important work on the theme of choice and accountability." Later this month it will screen at the Indie Gathering Film Festival in Ohio where it has continued its winning streak by receiving the 'Best Feature Drama' award.

Butterfly Crush is available in New Zealand on DVD and can be rented through video rental stores nationwide. We're looking towards an Australian theatrical release in February next year.

Feature: Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide - now available for the iPad and Kobo readers

horizontal rule

Angel's Can Fly has just been released for the Apple iPad and is available through the iBooks app at iTunes. We recommend purchasing the book for the iPad as this gives you the best value product and the most versatile reading experience. The ebook costs only US$9.99 and is searchable with links between pre-requisite and co-requisite exercises. The ebook can also be purchased for the Kobo reader in New Zealand through Whitcoulls or in Australia through Borders or Angus & Robertson.

Angels Can Fly is now in use in the drama departments of over 150 Australian and New Zealand high schools and has started to make its way into US and UK universities. This is a textbook for a fast changing art form, as clown escapes from the circus to perform in theatres and streets. The traditional approach to teaching clown is routine or gag based and this sits uncomfortably both with the teaching practices in modern performing arts education and with today's audiences. This book includes a total of 50 practical clown exercises appropriate for workshops or performance, developed by Alan Clay through 30 years of teaching. Specific prerequisites to any exercise are detailed in each chapter.

You can find the paperback on Amazon at this link: http://tinyurl.com/9nrwj And check out more info at: www.alanclay.com

Feature: Panto Damascus - One Clown's Alphabet, Martin Ewen, USA

horizontal rule

International clown Martin Ewen has just published his book, Panto Damascus - One Clown's Alphabet.

A clown soloist in search of structure, Martin sets out to compile an alphabet of experience. Collecting a global alphabet of towns and cities over two decades, seeking out and finally securing the last seven letters took him ten years. Once this arbitrary quest was fulfilled in 2009 he was again purposeless for two minutes. His remedy is this book, a written memoir of his alphabetical compilation.

Here is a taste of 'Panto Damascus' from the letter U: "Utrecht just had the misfortune of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Summer was over and the grey had begun. Amsterdam had done me no favors, the first international city in my first decade in which I couldn't fully function. Attempts, all in different locations, all failing in some regard, all lacking that essential cohesion; The three elements, A: passing pedestrian traffic, B: a corner or niche and C: an audience catchment area that does not disturb elements A and B. Amsterdam was to my shock proof my sociologically experimental, financially self perpetuating, clown performance, wrinkle wasn't bulletproof. So I caught a train to Utrecht and sat not far from the station eager pedestrian pickings having serious doubts about my vocation."

You can order the book for the Kindle download $2.99 or in hardcopy.

"Improv Actors, Canberra Playback Theatre, Australia. Aug 10th - Sept 21st. Canberra Playback Theatre is currently looking for new members and will open rehearsals in August and September to people who are interested in learning about playback and joining the company. Canberra Playback is really keen to get new people in the company who have a variety of skills, life experience and interests and although experience in theatre is beneficial, it’s not essential. Playback Theatre is a form of improvisational theatre in which audience members tell stories from their lives and then watch as actors and musicians enact them on the spot using movement, music and words, but without script or rehearsal. Sessions will run on Wednesday evenings 7-9.30pm from 10 Aug - 21 Sept at the Playing Field Studio, located in the demountable building next to the Street Theatre on Childers St, Acton. The first 4 weeks will focus on playback and theatre skills then the following 3 weeks will continue to develop these skills and focus on rehearsals for the next public performance on Friday 23 September. While it is not expected that new players will be ready to perform, input and involvement in rehearsals is welcomed. The term will be introductory training and a trial to see new players enjoy playback and want to join company, and also whether the company feels new players have shown the skills and commitment to join the group. At the end of the term an open decision will be made about whether people are ready to continue with the company. The cost of the training is $50 to assist with hall hire costs and 80% attendance throughout the term is required if you are interested in becoming a member of the company. For more information or to register your interest visit our web site." Leigh. Find a link to Canberra Playback Theatre under Training at: http://www.artmedia.com.au/links7.htm
