speaking in tongues, yppa national symposium
Young People and the Arts Australia (YPAA) will be presenting their national symposium at the Casula Powerhouse in July. Speaking in Tongues seeks to establish a common language around the multi-faceted manifestations of youth arts and the arts in general. The symposium will bring together a range of keynote speakers such as Sue Giles, artistic director of Polyglot Theatre; Baba Israel (in telepresent form) from Contact Manchester, a leading UK youth arts organisation; Colin Pidd from btli international, a global consultancy firm teaching strategy implementation and leadership development; and Suzanne Lebeau, playwright and theatre maker from Quebec’s Le Carrousel who will also be running a masterclass.
Other hightlights will include the unveiling of the findings from TheatreSpace, a four-year research project looking at young people’s responses to professionally-funded theatre in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Also on exhibition will be Ruth Sancho’s ambitious TRIP – T(L)ICS, Digital Interactive Poetry Installation exploring how language shapes our world and identity by focusing on poetry in Spanish, English, Catalan, Kari’ña (Venezuela), Mapudungun (Chile), Nahuatl (Mexico), Guaraní (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay), Maltés (Malta) and Yanyuwa (Northern Territory).

because we care, colin, simon and i
In the time that New Zealand dancer Simon Ellis spent in Australia he made a quiet but distinctive impact on the dance scene. His 2006 performance Inert was for an audience of two strapped into reclining beds to experience the intimate dance and video work with a lessened sense of gravity (see RT73). About Ellis’ 2003 performance Indelible Jonathan Marshall wrote: “Ellis produces something closer to a mnemonic auto-da-fé…With only the barest temporal and emotional rises, Ellis creates a sense of an increasing trajectory of shattering and division.” (RT54).
Now based in the UK Ellis has been collaborating with Colin Poole as the duo Colin, Simon and I. They’ve recently been commissioned by The Place, London to create the work Because We Care, which explores the ways men relate, in particular exploring their own collaborative relationship. For a preview see their video promo.
