Regional Theatre Showcase

12 Oct 2016 /

If there’s one thing we excel at in regional Australia, it’s producing some of the best theatre going round. ARTLANDS will be showcasing some of the best we have on offer with several performances throughout the duration of the festival.

Celebrating 25 years of performance, Circus West in collaboration with Stalker Theatre Company will be putting on a special performance for delegates and the community in Victoria Park on Thursday evening. Produced by Performing Lines, award winning choreographer Ghenoa Gela with dancers brings The Winds Of Woerr across the ARTLANDS precinct.

Acrobat will bring the Federal Arts Response Team (F.A.R.T.) to ARTLANDS on both Friday and Saturday whilst The Useless Assembly and RealArtWorks Inc. perform their interactive show The Singularity (Noise Opera) on Friday at the Old Dubbo Gaol.

Northern Rivers Performing Arts (NORPA) will perform a special showing (delegates only) of Three Brothers on Friday afternoon as part of the ARTLANDS Conference Program. BASIN, produced by Eastern Riverina Arts will be performed in special delegates only shows on both Friday and Saturday.

The Echo In Our Walls from Outback Theatre For Young People on Friday afternoon will feature the key ensemble of young actors who will perform short scenes and monologues from the performance that resulted from this project.

fLiNG Physical Theatre bring We Will Come To The Rescue to ARTLANDS following a successful regional tour across south eastern NSW. Exploring and embracing the themes and clichés of the Superhero genre, We Will Come to the Rescue showcases the dance, physical theatre and gymnastic skills of fLiNG Physical Theatre’s young performers at two ticketed performances on Friday and Saturday nights.

Also on the Friday and Saturday evenings, Lingua Franca Dance & Physical Theatre leap back onto the stage with their latest full-length show (ticketed), Unsustainable Behaviour.

Created and devised by Moogahlin Performing Arts with Linden Wilkinson, This Fella, My Memory will be performed for delegates as part of the ARTLANDS Conference Program on Friday afternoon at the Dubbo Regional Theatre.
