As I write the heading to this post i realise that in Brisbane winter does not mean quieter days, because there is only a slight variation in temperature. The extremes go, and we are surrounded by bright sunny days, late teen to mid twenty degrees (celsius) for most of the time. It is when i do outdoor workshops at Pullenvale because the weather is so fine. I plan on a days workshop in late May, a day of contemplation and dreaming. We will consider where we are at half way through the year and what it is we are needing, be it quiet time or planning time, reflexive time or connectedness. While summer has had its way with us we have been busy at FOC Headquarters and have created new outdoor spaces where we can work.
The year has sped, i bet it has for you too. I have spent a lot of time in Sydney and now will be spending much more time in Brisbane, working with local theatre companies on work that zings. End of May will see Niz Jabour and I work on his piece RAIN. He has presented it in Bagdad late last year, and now we will do a version here at La Boite first week in May. Mid May Leah Mercer is coming to Brisbane so we can begin to re-rehearse HOME for our QTC season in July. In June I will be rehearsing and performing with Pluxus2 Dance Company in Paratrooper Project at Judith Wright Centre:Click on the link to find out about their community classes throughout March.
Then in July HOME returns to QTC.
WHAT IS ON OFFER AT FOC:
1. MAY 30TH 10-6PM: Day workshop at FOC Headquarters, Pullenvale: Who am I becoming?. We will tell stories, meditate, draw, collage, move, indwell, create. We will eat, drink tea, walk, create. We will connect, laugh, smile, connect.
2. HUGE GARAGE SALE: SEPTEMBER, 2015. This monster garage sale is a fundraising event at FOC to raise money for Oxfam. Bill (BBA) is cycling in Sri Lanka for many long days, November 2015, in a fundraising bicycle ride. I thought we could have a huge sale so that we all contribute to his efforts to raise money.
3. PRIVATE SESSIONS: FROM March 2015 I am back to regular sessions at both Pullenvale and as soon as I can, Metro Arts, downtown Brisbane. Sessions are for artists who want to improve both their professional and personal lives. I use a narrative creative arts framework to help create new ways forward.
