Get ready to be inspired, provoked and entertained as WAAPA’s graduating performance makers hit the Blue Room Theatre stage at full tilt, showcasing their creative talents over two weeks in September.
TILT, performed in two programs from 11–14 and 18–21 September, is a highly-anticipated annual event that introduces Perth audiences to the next generation of passionate, creative performance makers.
As a showcase for WAAPA’s 3rd Year Performance Making students, TILT provides both a finale for their three-year degree and a launching pad into the next phase of their careers.
The best TILT pieces have gone on to play their own seasons at The Blue Theatre or feature in fringe festivals around the country.
The hit of the 2017 TILT season, The View from the Penthouse, returned to the Blue Room with a longer running time and a shortened title, The Penthouse, in 2018. Zachary Sheridan, whose piece Cookies and Cream was the star of last year’s TILT season, took his show to the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival.
This year’s TILT promises more of the same: sharply crafted storytelling, inventiveness in spades, and wonderful theatrical moments. This is theatre at its most eclectic, offering a bold physical theatre piece starring the hands of two women, a poetry performance, a sensory theatre experience in which to contemplate climate change, plus eight more original gems.
From solo performances to complex pieces for up to ten performers with choreography and music, WAAPA’s 3rd Year Performance Making students have devised a series of clever, original theatre pieces that showcase their skills and creativity – and make for two brilliant programs of theatre.
WAAPA’s Bachelor of Performing Arts Performance Making course prepares independent, self-reliant and entrepreneurial artists to be the initiators of their own work. Students are encouraged to experiment with form and are equipped with a broad range of skills from acting, movement, puppetry and voice work to producing, directing and writing.
Don’t miss these experimental, innovative and thought-provoking original theatre works.
