The Central Coast meets erth
Imprints 2013 gives Central Coast artists the opportunity to work with one of the country’s leaders in contemporary arts. Art Central has revealed that internationally acclaimed theatrical innovators ERTH Visual and Physical Incorporated are partnering with Imprints 2013.
Famous for their large scale unique theatrical experiences - including giant puppets, huge inflatables, aerial and flying creatures; erth will conduct a series of Master classes with selected Central Coast artists. The works created in the master classes will exhibit as a part of the Imprints 2013 live events which will be held at both Gosford and The Entrance in August 2013.
Most recently, erth’s ‘Murder’ reached critical acclaim at the 2013 Sydney Festival for its envisioning of a Nick Cave ballad using dancers and puppets. “erth is a company that has placed great emphasis on the value of story and by bridging the gap between the arts and museums it is possible to create a shift in perspectives of the culture and history of places and communities. We will bring our array of skills, tricks and experiences to work with locals to produce a unique vision of the Central Coast Region” Said ERTH Visual & Physical Incorporated Artistic Director Scott Wright.
“We are absolutely ecstatic“, notes Art Central Regional Community Creative Producer Liz Carter, “this partnership with erth will allow Imprints 2013 artists to optimise their projects with a series of professional development workshops from this specialised company.”
‘Imprints’ is a contemporary art project designed to create and exhibit new, innovative, thought provoking, interdisciplinary works that are responsive to the Central Coast Community. Now in its second year of production, Imprints is a project that continues to explore place and identity, defining the individuality that sets the Central Coast apart from Sydney and Newcastle.
