Welcome to the April 2009 edition of the Artmedia physical theatre newsletter, your e-publication with an Australasian focus and a global perspective, now in its eighth year and reaching over 2,500 subscribers.

We would particularly like to welcome all the new subscribers following the trial mailouts of the newsletter in the past few weeks. We return to our roots this month with Australian companies taking the Sponsorship and Feature slots. Remember to support the advertisers in this publication by attending their events.

This month we also launch the new Artmedia Social Network at www.artmedia.net.au. This site is a free social network for those into live performance, film and new media. If you are an artist or company working in these areas, you are welcome to become a member and post information on your work. You can also upload videos, post photographs, articles, reviews and network with other physical theatre artists.

In the Sponsorship this month we welcome the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, a circus skills training provider based in NSW, Australia with news of the 4th National Circus Training Project. This 2 weeks training intensive takes place during the NSW winter school holidays, with select trainers from the Fruities including International Master Trainer Sergei Okhai, formerly of Cirque Du Soleil, and visiting international instructors.

In the Playspace section, the Winter Clown Retreat in New Zealand is starting to fill. Following two clown retreats in our centre in Wanganui, we find that the relaxed atmosphere and secluded environment means that students get more out of the contact hours and can also process and discuss the work outside of the class. Email us to hold a place.

In the Features, a Bodyweather Intensive weekend workshop is being offered by Tess De Quincey in Sydney, but be quick as it starts Friday this week, April 17th and is the only one being offered by Tess in Sydney this year. It offers participants a thorough introduction and immersion in the Bodyweather practice and Butoh work.

We also have information on an upcoming performance work from De Quincey Co titled 'Ghost Quarters - the first dream of The Opium Confessions'. The season runs May 9th - 16th at the Eveleigh CarriageWorks in Sydney. 

Also in the Features, Playback Theatre is celebrating its 28th year, with regular monthly shows in Sydney beginning April 21st. They are also offering a series of  training workshops in their unique form of improvisation that requires intensive listening skills, ensemble work, trust and dedication. Its highly-trained actors draw on music, movement, physical theatre, mime, improv and Greek chorus skills.

In Networking we have a burlesque workshop in Auckland, New Zealand, which promises to be fun, but get your registration in. It starts April 26th. ROH2 in London, England is calling for submissions of high quality work across art forms, including dance, puppetry, physical theatre and aerial work for the Firsts 09 programme. Priority will be given to young, vibrant artists working outside of the mainstream and artists from the regions.

Also in the UK, Tmesis Theatre based in Liverpool has Physical Fest 5 - nine days of exciting physical theatre workshops and performances. In Florida, USA, Cirque du Soleil is holding auditions for circus performers. Application deadline is April 20th. And in New York, Artistic New Directions is offering a Summer Improv Retreat geared for performers as well as non-performers looking to improve their life skills.

Cirque du Soleil will be in Moscow and St Petersburg, Russia auditioning clowns, mimes and street performers. You must apply online to be considered. Audition dates are May 23rd and 27th. The International Performing Arts Network in Paris, France are holding Theatre and Clown Workshops beginning May 2nd. The IPAN workshops are a two day theatre intensive followed by a week of individual theatre workshops from around the globe.

In Amsterdam, Teatro Punto is running a Modern Commedia dell'Arte workshop and festival in July.  The last week of this 4 week intensive there will be an International Theatre Training Festival. And in Malaga, Spain, the International Dance Council CID (UNESCO) is calling for presentations for the World Congress on Dance Research. A presentation can be a research report, lecture-demonstration, class, performance, exhibition or projection.

This month we've re-instated the Notice Board section for those of you who need to post short personal notices. This month Johanna de Ruyter from Sydney is looking for a male Commedia dell Arte performer who can speak some Italian for a Theatre in Education show. Please send us notices for next month's Notice Board.

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.

Sponsor:  Flying Fruit Fly Circus - National Circus Training Project 2009 - Expressions of Interest

horizontal rule

Hello artists, trainers and companies!
The Flying Fruit Fly Circus is calling for expressions of interest to participate in the National Circus Training Project.  The project will take place during the NSW winter school holidays, 13 - 24 July, and cover a variety of circus disciplines.
This is the fourth year of the training project.  This year the emphasis will be on advancing the skills of circus students - though we are keen on helping people develop their skills in a new area.
So, if you’ve been training solidly for at least 12 months, you have one or more skills or sets of tricks under your belt, and you’re ready to take your capability to the next level, then this training project is for you!
Select trainers from the Fruities (including International Master Trainer Sergei Okhai, formerly of Cirque Du Soleil) and visiting instructors of global renown will guide you, coach you, and be at your disposal.  You’ll be taught at the training centre, in Albury NSW.
The camp will introduce you to new aspects of your training: it will identify areas of your current practice that are ripe for development. The trainers will cast a learned eye over your current skills, routines and progress, while imparting knowledge and experience.  
You’ll come away from 2 weeks of intensive training with a smile on your face.  You’ll be a little sore in the muscles but you’re somewhat used to it because you’re not a novice - you’re an intermediate or advanced circus performer in the making.
The National Training Project of 2009 welcomes physical artists of 12 years and up to join the fun and reach for that next phase of progress in the circus.
Email the Flying Fruit Fly Circus today, we look forward to receiving your EOI!        

Closing date: Friday 1 May 2009

Playspace:  Clown Training with Alan Clay

horizontal rule

Retreat 2009 - Wanganui, New Zealand

Sunday August 23 to Thursday August 27 (5 days) 10am to 4pm each day.

Following two summer clown retreats in our centre in Wanganui, NZ, we find that the relaxed atmosphere and secluded environment means that students get more out of the contact hours and can also process and discuss the work outside of the class. Reconnect with the playful, inquisitive, cheeky, clown spirit in a beautiful outdoor setting, overlooking the mouth of the Wanganui river.

Modern clown is less character based and more interactive than traditional clown, it is less about hiding behind make-up and more about revealing our true selves, and less about routine based entertainment and more about spontaneous artistic expression. We need training and tools to facilitate these new skills in our work, and this workshop aims to give participants a way of working which supports this process.
The fees include six nights accommodation with kitchen facilities. The Clown Retreat will be held in a secluded studio within reach of breathtaking west coast beaches, bush walks and jet boat or canoe expeditions, but still handy to good coffee and all the facilities.

The workshop 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.

NZ$600 Price buster (by June 15) NZ$700 Earlybird (by July 31) NZ$800 Full. Including 6 nights accommodation with kitchen facilities. (All fees and deposits are non-refundable) For those coming from overseas, the current New Zealand dollar exchange rate means this is about Aus$480 or US$310.  email: clown@artmedia.com.au to hold a place or make enquiries about this workshop.

Feature: Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide

horizontal rule


 Angels can Fly includes a mix of fiction which follows the adventures of ten clown characters, some personal clown anecdotes from clowns 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. Here are some reviews that have been posted on Amazon:


5.0 out of 5 stars helpful, inspiring, April 23, 2008 by Fritz "DM-Fritz" (Germany)
I just got the book one day ago. It pulled me through. although i work in the field of clown for quite a while it is a great book to learn, remember and to remind you. thanks a lot for putting a the stuff together. Great job, Daniel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Angels Can Fly!, October 31, 2005 by Michael C. Getlan "caring clown" (New Rochelle, NY)
This is a terrific book, and should be read and used frequently. The stories about the real clowns are inspiring and the exercises are practical and important, especially if you are serious about exploring the clown in you.
"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."

Feature:  De Quincey Co presents GHOST QUARTERS - the first dream of The Opium Confessions, May 9th - 16th 

horizontal rule

“A new De Quincey Co piece is a rare gift... it's a privilege to 
experience.” Deborah Jones, The Australian

Welcome to The Faculty of Dreaming | the brain is haunted | ghosts 
write secret inscriptions on the mind | language runs riot | 
thought spreads into wide open spaces | and the houseless vagrant 
walks all night. Someone is out there with murderous intent, but the horrors are all 

From the writings of the great poet and essayist Thomas De Quincey 
(1785-1859), GHOST QUARTERS unleashes visions that show us the world 
as a larger reality, a place of vastness and uncertainty, filled with 
the changing weathers of the psyche.

As part of the event there will be a Forum with different Guest Speakers each evening .
