See Hear Now 2007: An invitation to attend

See Hear Now 2007, a music driven, multi-arts, three-day event, will be held at the Riverway Arts Centre in Thuringowa, from June 22 – 24, 2007. It is a festival celebrating the innovative exploratory music that develops from the collaborative synergies that exist between music, dance, visual art, video and theatre.

Building on the success of ‘See Hear Now 2005’, we are hosting several inter- and intra-state musicians as festival guests for the weekend. A major feature of the festival will be performances by these artists, and the opportunity for local arts practitioners to interact and improvise with them in the creation of new work. The festival will also feature guided performances from local artists, combining musicians, dancers, visual artists and theatre practitioners interacting spontaneously, with the work of each artist stimulating and defining that of the other performers. Performances will be complimented by open discussions about artistic philosophy, practice and technique. Local performers and artists who would like to be involved in this event are welcome to join us as we are keen to involve as many locals as possible.

Key artists: Jim Denley (winds), Amanda Stewart (text and voice), Lawrence English (music technology), Bonemap (dance and multimedia), Clocked Out Duo (percussion & piano). The following local artists and performing groups will also appear: Dance North, Tropic Sun, Michael Whiticker, Steven Campbell, David Salisbury, Ian Brunskill, Matt Hill, Stephen Naylor, Clive Hutchison, Michele Deveze, Mark Bancroft, Marta Botta, Gerald Soworka, Torakena, Karen Gibb, Thalia Klonis.
