Museum ideal venue for student performance
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.”
