Artmedia News

Welcome to the final edition of the Artmedia newsletter for 2002,
a publication with an Australasian focus and a global perspective,
now reaching more than 8,000 subscribers worldwide, which can
now look back on three years of successful publication.

The incidence of people typing Artmedia into search engines has
now surpassed all other keywords for web surfers who have visited
the artmedia site from search engines. We attribute this to the word
of mouth from our newsletters, building a larger audience for the site,
so thanks for spreading the word.

We also get lots of visits to the site from past users who have book-
marked the site, and through over 1,000 links with like-minded sites.
Meanwhile all our site clients have just renewed for another 6 months,
while most have been with us for the whole three years, so contact us
if you want an affordable and effective web-promotion deal.

In this month's newsletter we feature the 5th Australian National
Circus and Physical Theatre Conference, to be held in Adelaide in
March next year. "A 3 day event for industry professionals from
around the nation and overseas to come together".

In Playspace news, I join forces with Phoebe Manning to present
our two solo shows back-to-back, in the 'Love and Chaos and
the Meaning of Life' tour of Queensland over the summer holiday
season. Catch us at the Southbank in Brisbane, Australia, this
weekend and next weekend.

We have a mime theme this month, profiling the Angry Mime
Summer School in Brisbane, together with a call for applications
for the 3rd International Mime & Physical Theater Festival in the
Caribbean. While in the noticeboard, Theatre de L'ange Fou has
info on their season of The Government Inspector, presented in
collaboration with the London International Mime Festival.

In the networking we also have information on the New Zealand
TV2 International Laugh Festival, which has an application deadline
next week, we look at some instructional videos on circus artistry
and sports acrobatics, at the web-site PerformingArtsNews, and
the Santa Fe Training Project in New Mexico, USA.

We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the growing
physical theatre community, so please send us info for inclusion in
this newsletter. Details of our web-site and newsletter advertising
deals are also at the bottom of this page. Please also forward this
to somebody else who may be interested.

Thank you for reading Artmedia physical theatre news and we
wish you seasons greetings and best wishes for the new year.

Love', is now available through bookshops and on-line stores.
