Reign Stage 3 Development

Posted by Morgan Leek, July 13th, 2011

Chrissie Parrott Performance Company is currently in Stage 3 creative development for Reign at MosArts Hall in Mosman Park. Reign brings together an exceptional creative team of Western Australian artists – Patrick Doherty (Visual Artist), Reg Cribb (Writer), Jonathan Mustard (Composer) and Chrissie Parrott (Director/Choreographer).  They are supported by a raft of wonderful performers and other creative and production personnel. In this stage the artistic team will workshop the sound, movement, script, characters and design developed in Stage 2 with eight performers – Kate Hall, George Shevtsov, Claudia Alessi, Rhiannon Newton, Russell Leonard, Kirsty Hillhouse, Tom Penney and Scott Ewen.

Throughout Stage 2 the core artists have been making work in responsive cycles. Now Chrissie takes over as Director. During this third stage her mission is work with the performers; exploring ways to bring all the material together on the floor. What to keep? What to put together? What hasn’t been created yet?
