Fringe is over - on with the next project..

Our Melbourne Fringe production of 'Appropriate Kissing for All Occasions' is over! It was such a great experience working on these pieces with uber talented writers David Finnigan and Isab Martinez and actors Laura McAloney, Erin Pattison and Christina McLachlan. So many highlights - working on a difficult script with limited finances and time, and seeing the beautiful work that could achieved. Having people so involved in a piece that they actually heckled our intimacy coach during her lecture. The audiences' vastly different reaction to the two different pieces. Dean, our lighting designer, finding a fantastic curtain upon which we could project the text (it may seem insignificant, but these things can make a big difference...) There's already a gaping hole that needs filling and snippets of future opportunities of what could be, but for now it's on with "Les Mysteres...." Budgets and timelines are underway and a second stage creative development is just around the corner...

It's been a busy few months...

ReAction Theatre was awarded a 'matched' grant through Creative Partnerships Australia for 'Les Mysteres du Louvre' in April, 2017. Part of the grant process involved a two day clinic where we were given extensive professional development in all types of fundraising - philanthropic, sponsorship and donations. This was very helpful and informative and, then, the fun began in earnest in June! We launched our campaign to raise funds with all monies raised being matched dollar for dollar by CPA. The fundraising was very successful and we are thrilled that LMDL will have a second stage creative development in the near future. You can read more about this on our 'Work in Progress' page on this website..

Over the past few weeks, I've also been working with three very talented actors  - Erin Pattison, Christina McLachlan and Laura McAloney - on two beautiful and enigmatic pieces by this year's Griffin Theatre Award winner, David Finnigan. We are really excited to be presenting these under the title 'Appropriate Kissing for all Occasions' at the Melbourne Fringe this year. You can read more about these performances hereTickets go on sale 10th August 2017 here.
