HOTHOUSE COMPANY NEEDS YOU!
You’re invited to take part in a film with BACK TO BACK THEATRE in celebration of our diverse All Saints’ College community.
HotHouse Company invites All Saints’ College students, staff, Old Saints, families and friends to participate in an exciting project with award-winning Australian theatre company Back to Back Theatre.
Back to Back Theatre’s The Democratic Set has toured the world for nine years starring hundreds of community members and, in 2019, All Saints’ College is privileged to be the first school to participate in this project.
The Democratic Set is a residency model for creating short films and performances, to explore the belief that all people are, in principle, equal and should enjoy social, political and economic rights and opportunities. The Democratic Set uses a custom-made film set, a neutral room with two opposing doors.
Disturbingly obvious and tantalisingly strange, The Democratic Set is a rapid series of short live performances and screen-based video portraits created in collaboration with communities.
Participants may take part as individuals or in groups (2–15) to create their 15-second performance!
- Current students, staff, family members, Old Saints, partner organisations and collaborators of all ages are welcome.
- The performances can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. Past scenes have included a child sleeping and an entire family dressed as bees. You may want to play an instrument, do karate, sing a song, read a poem, run a Science experiment or dance – the options are endless.
- No performance experience is necessary.

HEATHCOTE VISUAL ARTS EXCURSION
Last week, I took part in the Year 10 Visual Art excursion to Applecross with our Art teachers. Using the incredible river views at Heathcote Reserve, I was shown different techniques for beginning to draw a landscape, including composing and drawing techniques. Once we had completed our drawing, we used water colours to add colour. The class spent nearly two hours drawing and perfecting our artwork. After we finished our landscape drawings, the class lined all their wonderful artworks along the ground to see each other’s pieces.
I loved the opportunity to see each student’s unique interpretation of the same view. After our painting session, we visited the Southern Perspectives Art Exhibition at Heathcote Gallery, with amazing artwork by students from schools in the area. Two students (Gina Lintern and Eiriana Willson) whose work was in the exhibition were Old Saints who graduated in 2018.
It was a beautiful day of drawing and viewing art.
