WAAPA’s 30th anniversary year may be coming to a close, but there are still a number of exciting and ground-breaking performances to be seen before the end of the season.
Performances include the world premier of the musical, A Touch of Class, written and directed by acclaimed WAAPA duo James Miller and Peter Rutherford and performed by second-year musical theatre students, Stalin’s Orchard, written and directed by Christopher Edmund and performed by second-year acting students, and Talking to Terrorists, directed by Crispin Taylor and performed by third-year acting students.
Pre-professional dance company, LINK, are presenting the work of acclaimed international choreographer, Frenchman Fabien Prioville, in a special dance performance entitled Over and Out, which combines the artistic elements of ballet and dance for a moving visual performance.
WAAPA’s groundbreaking Music Technology and Composition students present Sound Spectrum – Tomorrow the world, a three-day music festival that combines acoustic and electronic musical performances, with installation, audio visual works, world premiers and DJ artists, held at the Flying Scotsman, Mount Lawley.
Classical vocal students will round out October with the presentation of English Eccentrics: An Operatic Entertainment, a showcase of eccentric English characters, written by Sir Malcolm Williamson.
WAAPA Director, Professor Julie Warn, believes the October performances highlight the wide variety of talent throughout the Academy.
“From dance to acting, musical theatre to electronic music, WAAPA is continuing to develop world class, unique performances that thrill audiences, and highlight the high calibre of student talent.”
