'You the News’ (working title) will be a media performance event that invites the audience to question who makes the news and what is ‘your’ role in making the news.
What is the news in the 21st century and who is making the news? Citizen journalism is now acknowledged to be a key contributing factor to making the news. The general public collect, disseminate and comment on news worthy stories which are generally distributed by the internet. With mobile phone cameras continually pointed at events or happenings that can be considered news, we are in a moment in time where life is continually captured and distributed 24/7. Whilst the mobile phone camera is often pointed towards the action, it also pointed back towards the user.
In development in 2017 for premiere in 2018.

PARTING THE RED CURTAINS
with Jan van de Stool
A show that takes it up the arts!
Already an interpretive dancer, singing psychologist and musical masseuse, cult comedy and cabaret legend Jan van de Stool is now adding talk/variety/game show-host to her extensive ego.
Along with her trusty pianist Helen, Jan introduces you to celebrity guests, Dutch parlour games, and plebs from the audience as she bridges the gap between millennials and your Mum.
A variety show on wheels, featuring fun and mystifying bite size acts where east meets west in a fusion of art, fashion, food and music.
In High Tea Yum Cha everything comes to you!
by Nick Wales in collaboration with Shun Ito
Kinetic Wonder Landscape is a vision shared between composer Nick Wales and Japanese kinetic sculpture artist Shun Ito to create a space of beauty peace and wonder through music and visual art. An immersion into the vibrations of the natural world.
Both artists use technology in organic ways. The music of Nick Wales incorporates the organics of acoustic instruments interwoven with digital manipulation and electronics; Shun Ito’s metallic sculptural work is similarly based in technical precision, creating precise organic forms that move in space to re-enact the complexity and beauty of the nature.
The first stage development of the work will be undertaken in November 2018 through the Ukaria Residency in South Australia, supported by the Australia Council.
In development in 2018. Available for touring from 2019.
