A couple of people have asked me for details about how to be involved as a performer/ensemble member during the current stage of development.

The ensemble were absolutely amazing last year and I am so thrilled to be in the midst of the 3rd phase of the PressureLands project! Go Team!

If you want to be involved during Stage 3 in creating & building the show, it’s simple really, all you have to do is turn up to Creative Development sessions and contribute what you can when you can.

Here’s the PressureLands Cast Timeline V.1 (now until December). Remember that Transport is provided between Renmark and Waikerie (and all the towns in between) for every session, you just need to text or phone the night before and let us know where to pick you up from.

There is no cost to be involved.

The other important thing – to be involved you’ll need to fill out a medical details/permission/release form. Download PressureLands 2011 Ensemble Emergency and Release Form and email to: pressurelands@me.com or bring along to the first session you attend.

I recognise that each and every one of you are super busy people who have loads of other commitments between school, work, family, friends, sports, community and other artistic projects – to make PressureLands Stage 3 work in 2011 I have an open door policy. What this means is that you come to scheduled Creative Development when you can, there is no expectation that you will be at every one or even at a certain amount. So I’ve provided the full timetable for you to plan ahead and think about how much time you are willing and able to commit.

Each Creative Development session will utilise whoever is there to progress the project to the next level. So you can have as much or as little involvement as works for you during Stage 3. (Please Note – even if you only come to one session I still need your emergency release form).

Not only is Stage 3 going to be an opportunity for us to fully craft the production, we’ll also be working with a dancer/movement artist & a professional actor to increase our skills, we’ll be joined by our composer/musician and a set/costume designer who will craft the other elements of the production with us over the coming months.

And wait for it …..Yes, PressureLands is registered to perform at the Adelaide Fringe in March next year! There will be auditions for the final performance cast early next year.

Any questions or concerns ring/text/email or hassle me on the streets. This project is for all of us so let’s make it special!

PS. For those of you who don’t check facebook regularly – did you know that PressureLands has been nominated for an Advantage SA award in the ‘Youth’ & ‘Arts’ Categories?? And PressureLands has also been invited to be showcased at the Goolwa Regional Arts Conference in October 2012. We’re super cool.
