STORYLINES 2017 A SUCCESS
On Wednesday, 18 October 2017, the newly streamlined Storylines Festival took place in the Centre for Performing Arts. There were three sessions across the day focusing on the theme ‘Page to Stage’.
Our Partners at Black Swan State Theatre Company looked after Sessions 1 and 2, describing the process of the stage production of The Lighthouse Girl: A courageous story that inspired the roaming spectacular of The Giants.
The panel discussion was facilitated by Stuart Halusz, Director of The Lighthouse Girl. Dianne Wolfer, the author of Lighthouse Girl and Light Horse Boy, spoke about the intensive research that was undertaken to write her novels. Hellie Turner (Playwright) spoke about adapting Dianne’s novels for the stage, and Lawrie Cullen-Tait (Set Designer) spoke about taking inspiration from the written word and the research that goes into the set design. The audience was then treated to a reading from actors Daisy Coyle and Benj D’Addario, which left students on the edge of their seats wanting more.

Session 3 was facilitated by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre titled ‘Picture Books to Puppetry’, aimed at students in Years 3 – 6 looking at The Arrival and Rules of Summer stage shows adapted from the award-winning picture books by Shaun Tan.
The session started out with a video made especially for Storylines from the Academy Award winner himself – Shaun Tan – discussing his creative process.
Philip Mitchell, the Director of The Arrival and Rules of Summer facilitated the discussion with Michael Barlow: Adapting Writer & Animation Designer, The Arrival and Leon Hendroff: Designer, Rules of Summer.
It wasn’t long into the session before the puppets came out, which really took the student’s interest. There was a lot of discussion about how the puppets were made and the process that goes into it.

For the first time the event was live streamed so schools that couldn’t attend the event could watch any or all of the sessions in the comfort of their own classroom for free!
