FLOCK - ARENA THEATRE COMPANY

FLOCK was a schools residency program developed and run by Arena Theatre Company alongside St Anthony of Paduas Catholic Primary School in Melton, Victoria AUSTRALIA.

⁣I was one of the artists in residence for the development and I had fallen in love with the school basketball court. We also had purchased a drone to play with on our visits, so naturally I was keen to get out in the sun and see what we could capture.⁣

⁣Working with the students we developed some choreographic “games” to play out on the court. This led to us orchestrating a full school parade out on the oval for the final development day, but thinking back, these simple experiments are actually my favourite.⁣

⁣Here are some stills from the raw footage of those days in the sun.⁣

⁣Shoutout to cameraman Phil McInnes and Ali Macalister-Bills for helping me facilitate.⁣

On another day I worked with the students to create flying machines with a simple template, these are a few of my favourites from the workshop. On the final project day we supersized the kids work into large installation pieces to be displayed around the school.
