Anywhere Theatre Festival
Year 12 Student Theatre Performances

The Anywhere (Theatre) Festival celebrates diversity, achievement and excellence and cherishes supporters, volunteers, audiences, participants, consumers, makers, creators, keepers and distributors of arts & culture.

It’s a way of sharing stories with our community. It’s a forum through which emerging artists can develop and showcase their praxis. It’s also an opportunity for local business and enterprise groups to play a part as host venues for a variety of performance and installation related entertainment.

Anywhere Festival is a win-win for Brisbane and the wider community to come together and celebrate the power of the Arts.

QACI features extensively in this year’s line up. A schedule of student inspired and created productions by our Year 12 Theatre Students are listed below.

How would you feel if you had raised a murderer?

Could you forgive your child if they killed an innocent human being or would you fight to keep them in jail. If they used the butcher knife for more than one reason would you still invite them over for dinner?  Would you let a murderer back into their childhood home?

Film Studios are known to be filled with drama and intrigue, the pursuit of perfection has its side effects, not everything is as it seems. There was a lot more leading up to “You had me at Hello” than we were told.

Alex_Eventbrite_SmThe Rubric System

18 May 4:30pm
19 May 12:55pm
QACI studio, Level 2, 61 Musk Avenue, Kelvin Grove

A play written and performed by Alex Cox.

What is the one thing that our parents tell us not to do, but we do it anyway? We judge a book by its cover. More specifically, in high school we create stereotypes – there’s the classic Jock, Goth, Basic White Girl, The Nerd and more. It’s our natural subconscious instinct. But what if someone wasn’t who you’d expect him or her to be? What if it was a façade just waiting to be broken by the right person?

The Rubric System, a play performed and written by Year 12 Queensland Academies Creative Industries’ Theatre student Alex Cox, aims to explore the criteria of stereotypes and show what’s really underneath the surface.
