Audax Industria Ensemble are partnering with Visible Ink throughout 2015 to build their company as well as rehearse for their upcoming show Rumination. After launching in February the ensemble have been working hard to create, develop and devise an innovative space for performance. Hannah and David sat down and gave us a little insight into their vision for Audax Industria Ensemble.
What are you currently working on project-wise?
We are currently working on our inaugural production “Rumination” which is written by Spenser Wallace, directed by David Charmley and choreographed by Hannah Farrelly.
What does Audax Industria Ensemble do and what do you love about it?
The focus of the ensemble is first and foremost with the creation and exploitation of productions in the Brisbane theatre industry. The objective of the ensemble is to collaborate and create innovative, contemporary theatre with a strong focus on multidiscipline art forms. The secondary focus of the ensemble is to share our knowledge and support emerging artists through intensive and weekly training programs, focusing on ensemble collaboration, creative skills and hybrid performance skills.
The reason we have chosen this path is because we are passionate about creating and facilitating theatre, and we have a clear vision for unique and innovative theatre. We are fortunate to have a highly skilled team to work with, who drive us closer to our goal.
How did you hear about Visible Ink?
We first heard about Visible Ink through Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre, where we have worked as performers and teaching artists. In our experience, we have always been impressed with the facilitators, resources and space provided at Visible Ink.
How would you suggest young people get involved with Audax Industria Ensemble?
We encourage emerging artists to get involved with our ensemble! We are always seeking new and passionate artists to work with – performers, directors, writers, composers, arts administrators, dramaturges, stage managers, designers, and technical artists.
