In 2009, I moved to Waterloo with my partner, have lived there ever since.
I love the place. Even though it’s not far from the city, Waterloo is a bit like a country town where everybody knows each other - and your business, but that's what makes it such a wonderful community to be part of. While there’s a lot of negative press about this largely public-housing community, it’s important that people  have the opportunity to see the humanity, dignity and love that keeps us strong, as well as the shared pain of dispossession and loss that people are trying to overcome

Posts in the Paddock

 

A performance combining sculpture, animation, puppetry, and oral histories

 

Presented by Performance Space

 

One hundred and eleven years ago, relatives of My Darling Patricia’s Clare Britton were murdered by an Aboriginal Bushranger, Jimmy Governor, on a property in the Hunter Valley. Taking its name from the ruins of the house, Posts in the Paddock combines sculpture, animation, puppetry, performance and oral histories exploring this moment in history from multiple perspectives.

 

My Darling Patricia collaborate with actor LeRoy Parsons, Jimmy’s great great grandson and Elder Aunty Rhonda Grovenor who also shares a family connection. You are invited to share this intimate and ultimately very personal work of reconciliation.

 

Artists:

Bryony Anderson, Jenn Blake, Michelle Blakeney, Clare Britton, Nadeena Dixon, Aunty Rhonda Dixon Grovenor, Phil Downing, Fiona Foley, Samuel James, Halcyon Macleod, LeRoy Parsons, Sam Routledge, Lily Shearer and Chris Twyman

Actor on a Box:

The Dreaming: Wake Up Australia!

The Sydney Theatre Company

12-13 April, 2011

Starring Angeline Penrith
Directed by Leah Purcell

Geraldine Worthington’s review

theatre/2011/04_11/dreaming/dreaming.html

AngelinePenrith_actoronbox2011.jpg

Using the Richard Wherrett Studio at Sydney Theatre, director Leah has Angeline Penrith escorting a very young audience and their carers back to the beginnings of Pamanyungun, the land the white man calls Australia.The story is a contemporary narration of the genesis of this great southern land. These stories have been passed to the writer/director, Leah Purcell, by her family.

At the core of the performance are two main Dreamtime stories featuring Wahn, the beautiful colourful crow and how he lost his feathers and turned black, and the journey of the Rainbow Serpent as she travels through the

Wakka Wakka region.The Rainbow Serpent, inhabitant of permanent waterholes, is in control of life’s most precious resource, water. With this water, grass and trees spring up and animals awake and follow the Rainbow Serpent across the land.

Angeline Penrith, affable and competent, quickly establishes a rapport with her audience.

After the performance there is a period of audience interaction when Angeline engages young and old. She introduces herself as a Koori from Redfern, and  teaches us Aboriginal names for the central characters of the story, and leads us in the Wake Up Australia dance. I knew those Zumba classes would come in useful some day!

After this rather brief encounter there are tables set up where the children can colour in a picture of Angeline and the story to take home. Angeline also invites them to add their hand print to the mural in progress.

It was enjoyable but very brief. I know little ones have a short attention span and a fast show is a good show, but another story after the activity session would have been rewarding — and we would have been good!

However, it was fun, funny, spiritual and informative. The promotion material reminds us how precious these stories are to the ancestors and it was a immense honour to participate in their traditional continuance and to assist in the nurturing and passing on of this ancient, timeless art of storytelling.

As Angeline taught us – it was Deadly!
