Welcome to the October 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 hope you missed us last month. As we had no paid features and nothing to sell ourselves, we didn't put out a September issue. We also have no Playspace section, as I have been very busy shooting my first feature film and so my teaching work is taking a back seat at the moment. We have now shot over 80% of the scenes and we are looking for extras to feature in the opening scenes of the movie, which will be shot at Circular Quay in Sydney, on Saturday November 28. More info below in the features.

In the Sponsorship this month we welcome the 2010 Western Australian Circus Festival with the latest news on 22 days of circus mayhem set to begin on January 4th. The festival includes a Summer School for children, a Festival Training Program for all ages and skill levels and performances from over 30 national and international circus artists. All set on the 10 acre Lunar Circus site in Karridale this circus festival has something for everyone.

In the Features, the Circo Arts training programme in New Zealand, part of CPIT¹s School of Performing Arts, has an opening for a Senior Lecturer. Candidates should be passionate about teaching and performance. The application deadline for this permanent fulltime position is October 23rd, which is the end of this week, so be quick. And in Australia, TIE: Theatre in Education is holding auditions in Sydney for their 2010 touring season. This is full-time work touring around Australia, performing to primary school audiences. The tour starts in February.

In Networking we have information on Auckland auditions for Clown Doctors International, newly established in New Zealand. They are hoping to form a team of excellent clowns from the November 6th auditions for on going work in the Children's Hospital. The tertiary training programme in Christchurch, Circoarts, is holding auditions December 6th for the next intake, so if you're interested you need to register now.

The Tempo 09 festival has organised an Improvised Movement Workshop from Theatre of the Ordinary with Al Wunder to be held in Auckland October 24th and 25th. The essence of the workshop is to help people find their own style of communication within the performing arts whether they are professional or are just ordinary people. And it's time to register for the 2010 Dunedin Fringe Festival which runs from 18-28 March next year and participating artists can apply for funding from the Festival for the development of new work or to tour a show to Dunedin. The deadline for funding applications is November 6th.

Australia's Silent Film Festival is screening fully restored silent film classics of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and others October 24th at the State Library of NSW in Sydney.

The Flying Squirrel Consortium in Massachusetts is offering an intermediate level drop-in class in aerial fabric.

Participants will be encouraged to take risks and explore their inventive potential in the creative process. The term begins January 11th.

In Florence, Italy, the National Federation of Street Performers has organised the workshop "Body Energy" directed by Yves Lebreton, to run from October 26th to 30th. Lebreton says, "No text, no direction, no art can replace the physical presence of the actor. The body is the essence of theater."  The Wintercircus Royal in The Netherlands is looking for circus artists. The Wintercircus runs from the 21st of December to the 3rd of January 2010. And in Spain, L'Escola de Clown de Barcelona has 3 places left for the professional 2 month's course that starts the 26th of October.

Feature: Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide a textbook for a fast changing art form

horizontal rule


Angels Can Fly, has started to find its way into high school libraries in New Zealand and Victoria, Australia. If you know any drama teachers or you work in a high school, suggest they check out Angels Can Fly.
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.
There are warm-up and introductory exercises in the early chapters, mid-session or mid-course exercises in the middle chapters, and more performance-oriented exercises, and relaxation exercises, in the final chapters. The exercises have all been coded for individual exploration, for work in pairs, for workshop use, or for use in a performance setting, or for some combination of these.

"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."

You can find the paperback on Amazon by following this link: http://tinyurl.com/9nrwj And check out more information at:  www.alanclay.com where you can still get a free copy of the e-Book.

A total break with the literary tradition of theater, claims a theater of action, movement and image, where the actor is both the author and the interpreter. "No text, no direction, no art can replace the physical presence of the actor. ... The body is the essence of theater." Cost: € 160.00 (€ 140.00 for FNAS members).
