Opening Night – Call For Volunteers

29 Sep 2016 /

Thursday 27th October will see the opening of the artistic program of ARTLANDS DUBBO 2016. A free event for community and delegates alike, the opening celebrations promise to be something that Dubbo has never seen before.

It will feature community drumming with Kai Tipping (Bellingen), a pop up farm, Indigenous dancers choreographed by Jo Clancy (Blue Mountains), a duet between local didj player Lewis Burns and Vic McEwan (Narrandera), The Dubbo Concert Band, conducted by McEwan, projections and a giant red-back spider puppet created by Dave Jones (Natimuk, Victoria) and made by Leonie Ward, and it will all revolve around a centre pivot irrigator modified by Joey Ruigrok (Mullumbimby). There will be smoke involved.

We are looking for local people to be involved in the performance, as characters and puppeteers (no previous experience required) and as stage hands (to move pieces).

You need to be reasonably fit and available for the evenings of Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th October from 6- 9pm and on call evenings the week before. The performance will run for 50min.

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in the sort of large outdoor performance that is not often seen in Regional NSW.
