Theatre piece stars in festival

A HIGHLIGHT of the upcoming Tyalgum Festival will see a performance called 'Mozart's Letters' on Saturday September 8 at 11.30am at St John's Anglican Church, Tyalgum.

'Mozart's Letters' is a piece of theatre that incorporates letters taken from Donovan Bixley's book 'Faithfully Mozart'.

Three actors, Lachlan Glasby, Nathan Batham and Jake Murnane will enact periods of Mozart's life through the performance of his letters.

In between each period, pianist Misaki Hori will play a complementary piece of Mozart's music.

The festival will see DoubleMask Performance in action on Saturday and Sunday September 8 and 9.

This youth theatre company began in 2006 with a small group of students under the guidance of Murwillumbah's Lachlan Glasby.

The focus of DoubleMask is on putting professional practices in the hands of teens and youth people in order to create pathways to arts-based careers and viable arts-based businesses.

This is achieved by the core objective of  'confidence through performance'.

Having begun with a small group of dedicated students, DoubleMask is now practised through five different programs in four schools, involving over one hundred students within the Tweed.

The Doublemask Performance team has been supported by the Country Art Support program and its' projects also include the Fridge Box Gallery.

Using recycled materials, the DoubleMask Fridge Box Gallery will feature living portraits of three famous composers - Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastien Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven - who will interact with Tyalgum Festival patrons and one another throughout the weekend.

Through this project, DoubleMask's Joe Allman, Jack Baker, Jordan Barnham, Daniel Hanger, Reba Ide, Byron Roberts, Molly Smith and Eliza Walker have researched the various composers to learn about their lives and the music they have written.

On both nights Tyalgum Night Lights will see a series of music-inspired light sculptures created for display during the Festival.
