We are so thrilled to announce the appointment of Carin Mistry and Frank Hsueh to the Board of DRILL!

Carin is the Executive Director of the Australian Script Centre/AustralianPlays.org. Since moving from the UK 20 years ago, she has worked in a range of leadership, program and policy development roles for the Australia Council for the Arts, including Director of Dance. 

Frank is a chartered accountant and Director at Macquarie Accounting in Hobart. He graduated with a Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Information Systems, and worked in various IT positions in Tasmania before becoming an accountant. 

Call Out for Dancers for NEON!

DRILL's next major dance work with young people, NEON, is here and we're looking for dancers aged 14 to 30 to form our 2018 senior company.

NEON will be three 20-minute pieces, choreographed by Joshua Lowe, Angela Barnard and Jaala Jensen, each one in response to one of the chemical elements from the Periodic Table. All dancers in the company will be performing in all three works. In the final performance season, they will be performed all at once and looped three times, with the audience roaming the venue and deciding on which work to watch, and in what order. DRILL creates works that challenge how the audience experiences them, and NEON will be no exception.

This project will span over two years, with an extensive creative development during 2018, and the performance season in 2019. You do NOT need to be available in 2019 to participate in the 2018 creative development.

We are looking for Board Members!

DRILL is looking for a new Treasurer and Dance Industry Representative to join our Board of Directors!

 

TREASURER

The Treasurer is responsible for the financial management of the company, including bookkeeping, reporting, financial liaison, and advising the Board on proper financial governance. This person will preferably hold a position as a chartered accountant, can confidently advise on financial planning, be creative about generating funds, and have time to commit fully to the role. 

The Treasurer needs to be based full-time in Hobart, manage bookkeeping fortnightly, and be able to attend Board meetings. Please note that this position is voluntary. 

Those interested in the position should contact Artistic Director Joshua Lowe at josh@drillperformance.com for more information. 

 

DANCE INDUSTRY REPRESENTATIVE

The primary role of this Board member is to provide a connection between the company and the national dance industry, while also using their perspective and experience as a practicing artist to assist with company governance. This person should be recognised within the industry, have an ongoing dance-based practice, and have the time and motivation to contribute fully to this role. This is a great opportunity for artists to learn about company governance and develop new standing within the industry. 

As the company is based in Hobart, Tasmania, you will be expected to attend most Board meetings via Skype, and some in person (with travel expenses covered by the company). Please note that this position is voluntary. 

Those interested in the position should contact Artistic Director Joshua Lowe at josh@drillperformance.com for more information. 

NEON Dance Workshop for Secondary Schools

During Term 1 DRILL is offering a workshop series for secondary dance students. Workshops will be designed to introduce students to the concepts and choreography of DRILL's latest major season, NEON, and provide them with tools to begin making their own sequences. This is a fantastic way to start your students' year, inspiring them with interesting contemporary movement and kickstarting their creative thinking. Workshops are led by DRILL Artistic Director, VCA graduate and choreographer, Joshua Lowe.

Students participating in the workshop will also hopefully be inspired to join our 2018 company and the cast of NEON. The call out for young dancers will take place on Saturday April 7th.

Dates: March 12th to April 5th, 2018 (excluding Easter break)
Cost: $110 per workshop

Please send workshop bookings and inquiries to josh@drillperformance.com. Spaces are limited.
