Macondo’s Clothesline is back. Want to play with us?: 21 July – 3 August 2014
We are seeking 6 artists from across Australia or beyond to join this unique creative development opportunity.
The 2-week program (21 July - 3 August) will include mentorship provided by industry professional Gavin Robins and an opportunity to create and workshop the second development of Macondo’s Clothesline, using a range of stimuli, improvisation, provocations designed to encourage an imaginative approach to theatre making. It will be a series of explorations, which will inspire to take Macondo’s Clothesline to the next level with a final showing of the work developed.
We’re interested in:
- All artists, devisors, collaborations and mediums. These can include (but are not limited to): actors, singer performance artists, writers, dancers, choreographers, puppetry/ object manipulation connoisseurs, sound, lighting and multimedia designers.
The development, commissioned by NIDA Independent, will be led by Alicia Gonzalez and Carolina Rebolledo alongside artists Natalia Ladyko, Naomi Livingstone, Mariana Barcelo and Juanita Boada as well as compositions by Keyna Wilkins. Alicia is Artistic Director of Marquez Laundry Theatre Co. The company is known for inventing stories “reaching into the deepest part of the psyche, hoping to stir, tap and awaken some sleeping giants inside” (Lisa Thatcher theatre reviewer). Alicia is a maker, performer, director, and is currently in Paris where she met international theatre maker Carolina (Artistic Director of Teatro Engranaje) at The Jacques Lecoq Laboratoire d’Etude du Mouvement. Carolina will be joining in for the entire development of Macondo’s Clothesline as Co-Artistic Director. Both come armed with inspiration and theatre making experience to create a visual body of work that will evoke culturally rich narrative and universality.
