New York, New York…
Very Special Congratulations to one of our Alumni from last year, Holly Trim has been accepted into the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She will be undertaking a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting later this year when she moves to New York for the next four years.
She will be seconded to one of 8 studios for the next two years, having the opportunity to perform after her first year in the 150 performance opportunities the school offers per year.
This is a prestigious school that only takes 15% out of thousands of applicants. It is also an extraordinary risk to not only move internationally, but to move to a country where she must support herself, being without a green card.
Theatre Festival Success
Coleman Grehan is thrilled to be presenting HIM at this year’s Anywhere Theatre Festival 2014.
Coleman graduated in 2012, is opening on the 9th May in Brisbane. He’s been working on this solo performance since around February and is excited to be performing it at the year’s Anywhere Theatre Festival.
Combining aesthetic influences of visual artist Matthew Barney with modern ‘splatter’ artwork, playing with immersion and interactivity and blurring the lines between personal and universal, HIM arouses the wildest feelings of joy, lust and fear to the one that you love (or used to love) by dancing the memories of each mark on their skin.
Coleman said about ‘HIM’, “This show combines, directly and indirectly, the many things that I’ve learnt from my time at QACI (e.g. music composition, performance making, butoh). I owe a big thank you to QACI for helping me to realise I’m a artist and not just a student.”
