Act for those at a loose end

North West Telegraph - - Lifestyle - Sophia Con­stan­tine

Hed­land res­i­dents will have ac­cess to laugh-out-loud com­edy with an ex­cit­ing twist of in­ven­tive­ness when the award-win­ning Loose Ends comes to Matt Dann Theatre and Cin­ema on June 12.

In the one-man show, ki­netic per­former Jens Altheimer will take au­di­ences across re­gional WA on a mag­i­cal jour­ney through pup­petry, shad­ow­play and in­ven­tion.

The per­for­mance tells a story about friend­ship, loy­alty and in­ven­tive­ness in which a man thinks he can or­gan­ise his life in boxes.

Altheimer said he was thrilled by the op­por­tu­nity to re­turn to the coun­try­side with his new pro­duc­tion.

“Re­gional West­ern Aus­tralia is one of my favourite places to per­form,” he said. “I had so much fun tak­ing Squar­ing the Wheel to com­mu­ni­ties all over the State and meet­ing many great peo­ple on the way from the Kim­ber­ley to the South West, and I’m look­ing forward to shar­ing my new cre­ations in Loose Ends with even more com­mu­ni­ties.”

Altheimer’s re­gional tour comes on the back of a suc­cess­ful set of shows around the country, in­clud­ing re­gional Queens­land, Vic­to­ria, and Adelaide Fringe, where the show was nom­i­nated for best chil­dren’s pro­duc­tion.

The WA tour is be­ing pre­sented through the Healthy­way and Country Arts WA pro­gram Shows on the Go.

Country Arts WA ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Paul MacPhail said the de­mand for the Shows on the Go pro­gram con­tin­ued to in­crease.

“Loose Ends was voted by re­gional com­mu­ni­ties as one of three Shows on the Go to tour in 2018,” he said.

“As part of the pro­gram, we sup­port lo­cal pre­sen­ters to build and en­gage their au­di­ences and max­imise the value of each vis­it­ing per­for­mance.”

The per­for­mance will also take place at Tom Price Com­mu­nity Hall on May 29, Karin­gal Func­tion Cen­tre on May 30, Nin­ga­loo Cen­tre on June 5, Shire of Ash­bur­ton RM For­rest Hall on June 7, and Pan­na­won­ica Com­mu­nity Hall on June 9.
