The launch of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (better known by its abbreviation WAAPA) program of events for 2014 is drawing near. Discover what’s in store for us in the coming months with a round of up WAPAPA events starting with the month of March:
Beach is the quintessential Australian play – a story of an Australian beach, from sunrise to sunset. Written by Timothy Daly and Directed by Michael McCall, Beach is a journey through events that have shaped our National dreams as well as nightmares. The play will be performed by second year Music theatre students and will run from the 14th to 20th of March.
Sculpture by the Sea in Perth has come around again, and we are lucky to be able to enjoy this favourite free to public arts event, with the organisers overcoming some challenging times to be able to launch this year.
It seems a while ago now that the creator of Sculpture by the Sea David Handley had a dream, and it was his dream that a free to the public community arts event be created for Sydneysiders. Handley was inspired by large community art events like ‘Opera in the Park’ and ‘Symphony Under the Stars’, and it was this desire that resulted in the first Sculpture by the Sea being held in Sydney in 1997.
From there, things got bigger, and the event spread to Perth, when the event was launched at Cottesloe Beach, a beautiful location, that we all know, love and enjoy. This year's event has attracted over 70 local, interstate and international artists, whose art works will be on display from the 7th March to the 24th March to create this beautiful sculpture park.
Stella's Sea is a poignant book by local author Sally-Ann Jones set in the Perth coastal suburb of Cottesloe, centred around the main character Stella and her dog Pom. As you follow Stella throughout her day, you are privy to her innermost thoughts and feelings as she interacts with other characters such as Ari the Coastguard.
The author Sally-Ann Jones expertly narrates Stella’s life – we feel her anguish at a tragic event that has occurred in her past, a painful event that is taking her a long time to recover from. Whilst she goes about her daily routine in Cottesloe, it’s the little things that bring a spark of hope and joy to her life.
There are plenty of outdoor events happening in Perth for the month of March 2014. Here is a round up of local community outdoor concerts, fairs and markets to check out this upcoming month.
Catch the Superheroes Hyde Park Fair on this Sunday 2nd March and Monday 3rd March from 10am each day. On offer will be a range of arts and crafts stalls, food vendors, live music and entertainment, kindly brought to the community by The Rotary Club of North Perth. Hyde Park is located on the corner of William Street and Vincent Street. Perth.
The movie "Tracks" will soon be showing at Luna Palace Cinemas in Leederville and Fremantle. Tracks is about one woman’s arduous journey through the dessert. The idea starts out as a dream, and the movie follows Robyn Davidson as she makes her dream into a reality.
She is faced with adversity right from the beginning – naysayers who don’t think that she can pull off her idea, not enough money to make her dream come true, and being female, young and at times naïve with dealing with the world.
