SE­CRETS AT FRINGE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LIFESTYLE -

NINE Curtin Univer­sity grad­u­ates and cur­rent stu­dents will bring their de­but show The Se­cret Gar­den Pro­ject to Fringe World this month.

The group form the emerg­ing lo­cal theatre com­pany Those Who Love You, and have cre­ated an en­chant­ing per­for­mance of sto­ries from sub­ur­bia tak­ing place in three se­cret back­yard lo­ca­tions.

The Se­cret Gar­den Pro­ject di­rec­tor Rhi­an­non Petersen said it was an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for emerg­ing artists to show­case their tal­ent and in­ject new ideas into the in­dus­try.

“We wanted to make a show that cap­tures the essence of an Aus­tralian back­yard, the sto­ries it can tell and how it can be trans­formed,” Petersen said.

“We also wanted to bring theatre to the back­yards of Perth and reach peo­ple who might not see a lot of theatre.”

Curtin Univer­sity lec­turer and Pro­pel Youth Arts co-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Mark Storen men­tored the pro­ject and said he was ex­cited for what was to come.

“To watch th­ese emerg­ing artists move from their stud­ies into the greater artis­tic com­mu­nity has been a joy,” he said.

The Se­cret Gar­den Pro­ject runs from Fe­bru­ary 11-20 in three se­cret lo­ca­tions across Fre­man­tle, Guild­ford and Leed­erville.
