  • Issue 69 - Layne Waerea's public laughter
    • Abstract: Braddock, Christopher
      This article discusses the itinerant art practice of Auckland-based Layne Waerea. As Maori lawyer turned performance artist, Waerea's mobile public gestures escape clear categorisation - they are temporal and inscrutable. She will mow grass berms in the affluent Auckland suburbs of Remuera and Orakei, advertise 'free' water on Queen Street, sell 'free' air and create new Maori bus lanes. Her 'injunctions' (as she calls them) challenge ideas of artistic, legal and social discipline.

      Layne Waerea's provocative performances reveal ongoing tensions between British Crown (manifest in the New Zealand Government) and Maori. As Waerea seeks out performance places for 'disagreement and injunction', she explores notions of kawanatanga (governorship), tino rangatiratanga (self-determination and a right to exercise authority) and kaitiakitanga (an obligation to nurture and protect). These notions pertaining to a Maori worldview are imbued with expectations of right behaviour, appropriate priorities and ethical decision-making.

  • Issue 69 - Moving 'Misfits'
    • Abstract: Maguire-Rosier, Kate
      In Dianne Reid's recent work Dance Interrogations (a Diptych), performed as part of the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival by Reid and collaborating artist Melinda Smith, spectators had no seats but rather roamed, observing two mature dancers. In this article, I explore Reid and Smith's live performance, a combination of structured movement improvisation and screendance, as a provocation of the relationship between movement and agency. I address the theatrical event through the multifaceted lens of the performers' experiences, spectators' responses and my own observations. Smith is also a wheelchair user and her movement quality is in stark contrast to that of fellow performer Reid, who sweeps through the space with the typical ease and flow of a trained dancer. Spectators' identification of Smith's particular movement aesthetic not only expands traditional conceptions of the dancerly body, but bears social implications for those of us perceived to be with disability. Most poignantly, one such implication is the importance of being seen on one's own terms. As Smith crawls on the floor, stands precariously on her knees and is lifted in the air, her palpable effort and slow movement defy what Tobin Siebers identifies as an 'ideology of ability' (2010). The performance draws our attention to the physical environment - an old train carriage and a convent - creating a strong concern with relationship to place and how that relationship enables or disables freedom of expression, or movement in that space. My empirical study considers this concern in relation to Rosemarie Garland-Thomson's concept of 'misfits' - 'a material-discursive becoming' (2011) - and, in doing so, uncovers a radical aesthetic anchored in Reid and Smith's deviance as mature dancers, and in the case of Smith, as a dancer with disability. Smith and Reid also speak so that their words - both organic and computer-generated - shape their movement with a palpable sense of agency. Spectators are moved, literally and otherwise, as they make space and even accommodate the performers' movements. I suggest that the performers mobilise particular aesthetic strategies: the visibility of disability and maturity; the establishments of 'fits' and 'misfits' between the performers, their environment and their audiences; the extension of material presence across bodies, but also through digital images and sounds; the cultivation of mindfulness in spectators; and the materialisation of a motif of slowness. I argue that these aesthetic strategies give rise to a politicised agency which is illuminated by the notion of 'misfits'.

  • Issue 69 - Mobilising the mobilities paradigm in drama, theatre and
           performance studies: Potentials, politics and pitfalls
    • Abstract: Hadley, Bree
      It is now more than a decade since the emergence of the 'mobilities turn' in the social sciences. Popularised in John Urry's books on Mobilities, and Sociology Beyond Societies, as well as in the work of Tim Cresswell, Mimi Sheller, and others, the 'mobilities turn' has rapidly begun to Influence approaches to the analysis of social life, agency, status and Power. According to Urry, twentieth-century theorisations of power relations - and, in particular, the power relations that prevail in public sites, spaces and places - paid too much attention to the experience of fixed territorial formations and too little to the experience of flow in and between these formations. As Friederike Ziegler and Tim Schwanen put it, 'cultural sociologists and cultural geographers have too long tended to examine social life without due recognition of the crucial role of the systematic movement of people for work and family life, for leisure and pleasure, or for politics and protest'.

  • Issue 69 - Unsteady belongings: Rethinking the experience of nation
           through movement
    • Abstract: Pearson, Justine Shih
      The new mobilities paradigm identified by Mimi Sheller and John Urry in 2006 was in part a descriptive response to a contemporary world 'on the move', but it was also a critique of what the authors saw as a 'sedentarist' social science that posed stasis as normal and 'treats as abnormal distance, change and placelessness'. This interest in mobile or fluid ways of conceptualising place and subject formation follows the postcolonial revision of our understanding of culture itself in the 1990s, in which contested and unstable identities and attachments to place and people were under examination. However, these discussions posed the concept of movement as largely abstract, as a hermeneutic for dismantling prevailing structures of thinking.

      In this article, I take the idea of a world 'on the move' and fluid concepts of culture, and put them up against the resistantly fixed and stable ways in which nation is employed. Following previous work in 2012, in which I sought to extend our understanding about the mobility of culture in embodied terms (i.e., as experienced or enacted), this article turns its attention to the key term 'movement' to focus on the kinaesthetics of national and transnational belonging. Performance, I argue, proposes a fundamental concern with the material body in movement and in space; it therefore allows for particular theoretical and methodological insights into the study of the embodied experience of belonging. It is perhaps the very disciplinary tincture needed to counter the 'sedentarist' social science that Urry and Sheller critique.

  • Issue 69 - Migrant mobilities: Cruel optimism and the case of A.J. D'Cruz
    • Abstract: D'Cruz, Glenn
      Migrants are mobile by definition. They literally uproot themselves and move to sometimes-distant lands for a variety of reasons. Some move away from real or imagined threats to their very existence. Others seek a better quality of life. And some adventurous souls are inhabited by a restless wanderlust - a desire to roll the dice and see what happens. Such mobility requires fortitude and faith. Migrants move through space and, if they have an aspirational disposition, they attempt to accumulate symbolic capital to move up those social and economic hierarchies that bestow status and prestige within their adopted homes. The migrant journey to Australia often ends with the realisation that one has to make and remake one's identity, and perform a series of adjustments - adjustments in terms of comportment, dress, accent and disposition. This article is a critical reflection on a multimedia presentation that tells a story about the author's father, A.J. D'Cruz. It draws on historical archives and the material remnants of A.J. D'Cruz's relatively short life (letters, photographs, sound recordings, 8mm films). It also provides a singular account of the performance practices involved in becoming a 'New Australian'. Combining personal anecdotes and philosophical ruminations on history, technology, and cultural identity, the article interrogates and performs a series of migrant mobilities.

  • Issue 69 - Like riding a bicycle: Achieving balance through mobility in
           site-specific performance - a comparative study of railway wonderland
           (2015) by northern rivers performing arts and Sir Don v the Ratpack (2009)
           by Guerrilla Street Theatre
    • Abstract: Davies, Paul
      According to Peter Brook's famous dictum, it requires more than just an empty space, an actor and someone watching to constitute an 'act of theatre' (The Empty Space). The actor must also walk across the space. Setting aside questions of why she is walking or where (the narrative factor), it is motion in theatre practice that remains the connecting spark. And that for site-specific theatre especially, it is mobility - either of audience, performers or stage - that 'ignites' into being the dramatic space in which events may occur. De Certeau also finds that space is 'composed of intersections of mobile elements' and is 'in a sense actuated by the ensemble of movements within it'. Space is 'like a word when it is spoken' (Everyday Life). Lefebvre, taking his cue from the astrophysics of Fred Hoyle, similarly argues that space may be created 'by the energy deployed within it' (Production of Space).

  • Issue 68 - Reinterpreting passion: A study of Habib Tanvir's theatre
    • Abstract:
      This article examines the theatre of Habib Tanvir, a playwright, actor and director from India, and through this analysis demonstrates the emergence of the new definition of 'passion as resistence' in the 1970s in India. Although the idea of 'passion as resistance' arose during the colonial period as Indian writers assimilate this meaning. In his postcolonial theatre, Tanvir presented the viewpoint of the people against the established urban definition of acting that privileged the 'voice of the Artist' over the 'voice of the people' (to borrow the terminology from Rustom Bharucha), as well as the 'vachik abhinaya' (acting through speech) over the angik abhinaya (acting through bodily movements).

  • Issue 68 - Applied theatre techniques for community workers - towards a
           performative and anti-oppressive ethical approach
    • Abstract: Lathouras, Athena; Loth, Jo; Ross, Dyann
      What can Applied Theatre (AT) techniques in the tradition of Augusto Boal and community development (CD) goals in the liberatory educational tradition of Paolo Freire learn from each other? Specifically, can access to performance skills and processes intended as a 'poetics of the oppressed' enrich participation address discrimination, disadvantage and other forms of oppression? If so, can these 'borrowings' from AT enable empowerment of practitioners in how they think about and undertake their CD work in contemporary social services contexts? What are the possible limitations and challenges of adopting AT in this field of practice? Is it possible that this marrying of AT techniques and CD processes and goals might support Mouffe's call for an agonistic confrontation approach to the status quo? Such efforts may thereby 'contribute to a revitalization and deepending of democracy' where dominant power relations can be challenged through 'counter-hegemonic projects ... through a process of disarticulation of existing practices and creation of new discourses'.

  • Issue 68 - Acting in verbatim theatre: An Australian case study
    • Abstract: Peters, Sarah
      Bald heads and blue stars is a verbatim play that explores the female experience of Alopecia; an autoimmune condition that results in varying degrees of hair loss. Writing and performing in bald heads and blue stars was integral to my practice-led PhD research into the process, form and impact of creating verbatim theatre. In this article, I focus explicitly on the rehearsal process of our 2014 season of bald heads & blue stars with Artsworx at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). I explore some of the challenges faced by the cast, describing various strategies which we employed in rehearsal, and articulating what I learned about rhythm, breath and audience positioning through rehearsing and performing this verbatim play. I begin with an introduction to the context and methodology of my research, followed by an overview of the bald heads & blue stars narrative.

  • Issue 68 - Real men at play: Massive company's the brave
    • Abstract: Hazou, Rand
      This article explores notions of 'the real', 'the authentic', and 'the masculine' at play in The Brave (2013), a performance devised by eight male members of the Auckland-based Massive Company. Directed by Sam Scott and Carla Martell, the performance explores some of the many pressures that young men face today in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The performance highlights the pressure that some younger New Zealand-born Pasifica men can experience when faced with the social expectations to act or behave like a 'real' Samoan or Tongan, for example. Underscoring the performance is a critique of particular essentialist, static and authentic notions of maleness and masculinity. However, at the same time, the devising process that Massive Company enlists also seems paradoxically to employ a notion of authenticity that is tied to ideas of 'the real'. When devising work, the company often works 'from the real', exploring the actual stories of members of the cast and workshopping these experiences into performance. This article considers the distinctions at play in Massive's working methods and explores how ideas of authenticity and 'the real' are informed by key clowning concepts through the influence of Philippe Gaulier. Ultimately this article considers how The Brave might play with, and subvert, a static and essentialist notion of authenticity in particular reference to how male identity and masculinity are conceived.

  • Issue 68 - Theatre animals: Sumner Locke Elliott's invisible circus
    • Abstract: Pender, Anne
      Sumner Locke Elliott is remembered in Australia primarily for his novels and their popular screen adaptations. He is also known for his play 'Rusty Bugles' first produced in 1948. In the USA, he is know for his television writing. In spite of Locke Elliott's immense achievements as a writer who successfully wrote in so many genres and quickly adapted his craft to the rapidly expanding medium of television, there is little scholarship about his contribution to drama on stage, radio or television, with the exception of commentary on Rusty Bugles. Moreover the network in which he worked from 1934 until 1948 has also suffered critical neglect.

  • Issue 68 - The sacrifice of oriel gray (1920-2003): Australian playwright
    • Abstract: Moss, Merrilee
      Between 1943 and 1960, Australian playwright Oriel Gray had more than fourteen theatre scripts produced in almost every capital city of Australia. She was arguably the first playwright-in-residence in Australia's history and one of only a few Australian playwrights to make her living from her work. She wrote numerous radio plays for 2KY in the 1940s and many more for the then Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) in the 1950s. She was well respected and well reviewed. She won many playwriting awards, including the Wagga Wagga play competition prize in 1946 for My Life Is My Affair, the J.C. Williamson Guild competition prize in 1960 for Burst of Summer and the 1955 Playwrights Advisory Board's (PAB) prize for the best Australian play with her script The 'Torrents'.

  • Issue 68 - Top girls 'down under'
    • Abstract: Decent, Campion
      This article considers two new productions of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls staged at Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) and the State Theatre Company of South Australia (STCSA) in 2012. These productions revive a play that might be said to belong to a historical set of circumstances pertaining to the 1980s in the United Kingdom. Yet this article argues that these productions facilitate the play's ability to speak to a contemporary set of circumstances in twenty-century Australia. The circulation of the play in production in 2012 sees a number of second-wave feminist 'ghosts' attach and detach themselves in reception. As might be expected, these include notions of bourgeois feminism, Capitalist economy, and the figure of Margaret Thatcher. Perhaps more surprisingly, the reception of both productions becomes entangled in the question of the play's relevance and a renewed debate about the lack of creative leadership opportunities for women in Australian theatre.

      This article is in four parts. First, I discuss the emerging worldwide phenomenon of commercial cinema screenings of live stage performances. Second, I chart some attempts by Australia's major performing arts organisations to do likewise. Third, I examine more closely one simultaneous satellite relay screening to nine regional cities: a performance of a Queensland Theatre Company (QTC) production of Tom Wright's Black Diggers, directed by Wesley Enoch, on Wednesday 8 October 2014. Finally, I attempt some brief thoughts on where this new area of work could be heading.

    • Abstract: Lawrence-King, Andrew
      Something special was happening around the year 1600. In London, audiences thronged to the Globe Theatre to hear words and music that evoked a 'demi-paradise', the 'havoc ... of war', 'the vasty fields of France' or a 'vision' of 'cloud-capp'd towers'. Piecing out the imperfections of a bare stage with their thoughts, spectators with their 'imaginary puissance' saw kings, kingdoms and horses: actors used 'imaginary forces' to work their new techniques of Personation.

      In this article, I would like to talk about sound and silence and the ways in which they create meaning, as part of the fabric of elements in theatre. I will talk about the choices that we, the artists, make in the process in order to articulate and shape meaning through sound. I argue that music essentially contributes to the shaping of meaning, and that it does this in conversation with the performers - it is relational.

  • Issue 67 - Not just 'evocative': The function of music in theatre
    • Abstract: Baston, Kim
      Music is ubiquitous within theatre production, but its effect is curiously under-theorised in theatre and performance studies. Descriptive terms like 'evocative', 'atmospheric' or 'haunting' are frequently used, but, even when these indicate a positive response, they are inadequate descriptions. This article, therefore, proposes a framework for analysing the function of music in theatre. By focusing on function, rather than on musicological analysis, the framework provides a discourse that can be used by non-musicians. In other words, to describe what music does, rather than what it is.

  • Issue 67 - David N. Martin and the post-war 'acts and actors' of
           Australian variety
    • Abstract: Kelly, Veronica
      The variety firm of Tivoli Australia Pty Ltd dominated the industry from the late nineteenth century up to its closure in 1966, in lively competition and collaboration with many other variety firms. While its own management consciously professionalised their operations in accord with international post-war organisational principles, it also seeded the new thrusting breed of international commercial entrepreneurs who would replace it. The Tivoli's great assets were its long-standing institutional prestige and iconic status as Australia's major variety house; its chain of theatre buildings built or acquired in the capital cities; and a managerial culture which increasingly stressed the international, the excellent and the 'family' audience. Of particular interest are the decades after World War II, which comprise Australian variety's loss of the large and predominantly masculinised audience of American and Australian servicemen; the international competition for acts caused by the renewed availability of communications and travel; the introduction of television in Australia for the 1956 Melbourne Olympics; and television's successorship as one of the nation's dominant popular entertainment media. Whereas neither film nor radio had made much of a sustained impression on live variety attendance, the advent of television would help to turn the Tivoli's residual nineteenth-century assets and skill sets into potential weak spots.

  • Issue 67 - Sound (image, text): Audiovisual relationships in M+M
    • Abstract: Schlusser, Daniel; Verhagen, Darrin; Paul, James
      M+M was produced for the 2013 Melbourne International Festival of the Arts as a co-production between the Festival, Theatre Works and Daniel Schlusser Ensemble.1 Billed as a 'free adaptation' of Mikhail Bulgakov's novel The Master and Margarita, it would be more accurately described as an autonomous theatre creation that was built around motifs, characters and the action of the novel, infused with the distinctive humour and anarchy of Bulgakov but also creating its own narrative possibilities. Set in the confines of a prison or asylum, fracturing the source materials across performers, binding the character of Margarita with the punk-protesters Pussy Riot and the Christ-story, the production could be read as examining political tyranny in Russia both past and present, or more broadly as an examination of the role of resistance, unconditional love, sacrifice, and individual acts of artistic creation as a ritualistic defence of the polis.

  • Issue 67 - Reading and performing abjection: Staging joyce, a professional
           reflection
    • Abstract: Devlin-Glass, Frances
      As one who has mounted theatrical Bloomsdays since 1994, I well understand that the issue of Joyce's radicalism on the subject of the body is a recurring crux for dramaturg, director and actors, not so much on moral grounds, as on the grounds of playability and sometimes taste. It is one thing to read with a startled chuckle a febrile passage which transgresses norms, or to enjoy hyperbole in context, but embodied enactment is an entirely different matter, because the limits of what Joyce was prepared to essay in fiction are so extreme, so strangely and transgressively unfamiliar, despite the passing of close to a century since publication. It is the difference between reading in private and reading a staged and necessarily embodied and visual event that is the focus of this article. What performing Joyce's bodies has revealed to me is his particular, unsentimental and secular take on bodies as both comic and sublime, even sacred - concepts that are rarely yoked together. Resisting the impulse to sanitise Joyce and censor him takes one into the territory of outrageous, often non-naturalistic, comedy, but also into a paradoxical notion of the body as sacred, and the gendered body as potentially subversive, via the by-ways of theatricality, censorship and taste.
