Stomping Ground For Me!

Project 2013-11-15 23:39:25 +1300

I love making and teaching theatre! My dream for several years has been to get myself to Oz to do Zen Zen Zo's 'Stomping Ground' - 2 weeks of Physical Theatre training followed by an intensive week of a Devising Masterclass. So far, life (and finance) have got in the way but I am determined to attend it this January after a tough year...kickstarting 2014 as I mean to go on with creativity and gusto!

As director of the Hawke's Bay Youth Theatre (a charitable trust), I want to bring the very best out of my talented students. I intend to come back with new skills and inspiration for my kids who have proven to me this year that they have a thirst for physical theatre and devising too.

So, where am I at right now? I have tried for some grants to help me fund my trip, without success as yet. However Keirunga Homestead Theatre are holding a fundraiser night for me during my upcoming season of 'Lashings of Whipped Cream' (4 -15th December, Havelock North, don't miss it!), so that is brilliant!

Not only that, Zen Zen Zo have also kindly offered me a place on the course at the Concession rate as they know I have been dying to do this for so long. 

We have 'rellies' on the Gold Coast so should be sorted for accommodation (the third intensive devising week is residential anyway), so what I am really looking for is help to fly to Brisbane, the cost of the course and daily travel to and from the city. All in all, $2500 is what I am hoping to raise but I have set the bar at $1200 which will cover the course costs, if we can go higher still, woohoo!

Well, the heat is on...I have only 2 weeks to get the course booked and paid for at the Earlybird price...and there is one place left on the Devising Masterclass with my name on it.

Check out the rewards I can offer you, your organisation or school in exchange for this upfront support! So, who is with me?

Lashings of Whipped Cream

11/12/2013 at 12:42 PM

Hi everyone,

Only 3 days left and still a long ways off my target. My production of Lashings of Whipped Cream is in full swing and the fundraiser night was a great success on Monday night. Everyone who has seen the show has loved it, so if you haven't yet seen in, get onto it quick - only 4 nights left to see it!

I know there are a few people out there who are keen to support but just haven't made the pledge yet, so please get your pledges in over the next couple of days.

Unfortunately I won't be going to Oz this January as I lost the last spot on the devising course this year, but I plan to book up straight away for 2015! In the meantime, all of the rewards still stand, I can come in to run workshops in 2014.

Looking forward to this last burst of support! :)

Lashings of Whipped Cream ON NOW!
