Mu­seum ideal venue for stu­dent per­for­mance

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

WAAPA sec­ond-year per­for­mance stu­dents will present Hid­den Traces at the WA Mu­seum from Oc­to­ber 21 to 24.

The pro­duc­tion is di­rected by Lorna Mar­shall and ex­am­ines the idea of what we leave be­hind.

It is an ideal col­lab­o­ra­tion with the WA Mu­seum, which houses a rich col­lec­tion of ob­jects rang­ing from me­te­orites and an­cient bones to fos­sil foot­prints record­ing a fam­ily wan­der­ing across a mud flat in Africa 3.7 mil­lion years ago.

Spec­ta­tors will be guided through a prom­e­nade-style ex­pe­ri­ence mov­ing through the hid­den nooks and cran­nies of the venue.

Stu­dent James McMil­lan said his class was ex­cited to be work­ing with Mar­shall, hav­ing stud­ied her work for many years.

“Be­ing able to work with her de­vis­ing a pro­duc­tion is a dream come true,” McMil­lan said.

“This process will be one we will be able to draw wis­dom from for our own learn­ing for many years to come.”
