REHEARSALS for the youth project “Out of Place” began on Saturday at the Bega Town Hall.
The project involves three groups of talented young people from the Bega, Narooma and Canberra areas who will work with their local group leaders to develop an exchange and collaboration performance.
“Out of Place” involves 40 young people in the performances which are scheduled for The Ainslie Centre, Canberra (Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28), Narooma High School, Narooma (Friday, May 4 school matinee and evening) and Bega Town Hall, Bega (Saturday, May 5, community matinee and evening).
Ruth Osborne, manager of Youth Practises at the Choreographic Centre, is the artistic director of the project and will choreograph sections of the work in collaboration with the regional directors and choreographers, Robyn Sedgwick and Lee Pemberton.
Although most of the funding for the project is now secure, organisers in Bega are looking for local sponsors for assistance in travelling to Canberra for the rehearsal week April 23 to 29th.
Enquiries may be made to Lee Pemberton, Bega on 6494-4376.
“Out of Place” is aimed at developing skills, providing hands on career experience and establishing personal and peer networks.
It will achieve this through the creation and public performance of a new event in the region based on physical theatre and movement.
The project has enormous potential to provide young people with opportunities in performing arts not normally available in regional areas.
The themes of the work will explore the geographical areas that the participants come from, and how these places impact on their lives.
There will be visual imagery from video, slides and perhaps a photographic exhibition to highlight the physical beauty as well as the differences of the areas.
The project already has the backing of Telstra, Arts ACT, Canberra City Backpackers and Symons Coaches along with the ACT Chief Minister for the Arts.
