The Tutu Shows PROJECT
exploring “two-ness” in every which way
lines that connect AND lines that divide
the power of two
stories of “two” guide us to a point ...where opposites become reconciled, bringing that which is unbalanced and incomplete to a state of balance and completeness – not somewhere between the two extremes but to some third position that transcends them both
The Tutu Show PROJECT
Modularity and SharingPerformance-making ensembles will respond to the same germinating idea, create their content in modular form and make their performance modules available for sharing between partnership communities inviting co-creation.
The Tutu Shows PROJECT in 2016
- Dave Brown will work with a group of theatre-devising students at the Adelaide College of the Arts across an eight week theatre-making process, which will deliver the first “Tutu Shows” performance outcome to audiences of 4-6 year olds.
- Megan Alrutz will lead a group of devising students from the University of Texas, Dept of Theatre and Dance in a semester long process (with Dave Brown joining the group for a 4 week residency). The team will develop “Tutu Shows” content, in the form of performance modules, as a creative development process for a later performance outcome.
- Dave Brown will work with independent artists to create “Tutu Shows” performance content with a view to exploring the possibilities of connection, creation and partnership these may engender.
- The PaperBoats will commission a small number of artists to create content, generate design possibilities or contribute ideas to support the development of The Tutu Shows PROJECT.
