Who Run The World? - Umbrella Festival at The Breakout // May 2018

WRTW Logo1.jpg

A potent showcase of female South Australian musicians, curated over two nights in July

Who Run The World is the idea of local female musicians Erin Fowler and Emily Bettison, who both reside at The Mill (Erin as Director and Emily as singer, songwriter and producer at her recently built sound studio.)

Bettison and Fowler have each curated an evening of music featuring a bevvy of local female artists.

Thursday July 12: PASSION POP: Shining a light on female pop artists, curated by Emily Bettison Artists: NAKATOMI // FERRNS // KADO

Three of Adelaide’s finest female-fronted pop outfits. Indietronic, alternative future-pop duo NAKATOMI combine the fully-charged vocals of Em Smart along with musical partner Hamish Cox. Bettison’s eclectic, alternative pop act FERRNS will also grace the stage, exploring electronic pop with soul and R’n’B stylings to create vibrant, infectious tunes to promote joy, empowerment and movement. Kaitlin Feagan of KADO (formally Alice Girl), who blends glitter with alcoholism to bring you nostalgic tunes in the style of alternative alco-pop.

Bringing pop to the fore, audiences can be sure to have their feet moving and dance the night away.

Thursday July 19: STORY AND SONG: An evening of storytelling and song, curated by Erin Fowler Artists: NAOMI KEYTE // SITARA // HANNAH YATES

A stunning line-up of artists with  unique and intimate ways of telling a story – be it through song, poetry, film or dance. Award-winning singer songwriter from the Adelaide Hills, Naomi Keyte will work with multi-award winning photographer (and The Mill Associate Artist) Che Chorley, who’s passion and affinity for the ocean sees him create mesmerizing photography and film. Chorley's recent exhibition THE SEAN AND SHE was a stunning celebration of the female form. Fowler's band SITARA  - with sister Tess - will perform their 2017 visual album, Alchemy, against their projected 40 minute film,  incorporating Tess’s experience in theatre and screen, and Erin’s work as a choreographer and dancer. To complete the line up, is local songstress Hannah Yates who floats storytelling lyrics on nylon string lullaby rhythms to soothe you through deep nostalgia and into an eerie and uncomfortable place. Hannah interweaves storytelling, folk and haunting soul with a hint of cheeky with the purpose of preserving the Kaurna language and culture of the Adelaide Plains.

Doors and food from 5:30pm
Music from 6:30pm
Food trucks (vegan options available): Soza’s Sri Lankan Street Food (July 12th) // The Taste of Spain (July 19th) Drinks and mulled cider by SPARKKE // Hither & Yon

The Helpmann Academy and The Mill have presented their coveted ilDance Award, valued at over $17,000 per recipient, to two emerging South Australian dancers.

Zoe and Felicity, who will depart Adelaide for Sweden in June, were selected for the residency following an intensive audition process with the directors of ilDance, Lee Brummer and Israel Aloni. The audition saw a dozen local dance graduates vying for selection to take part in the ilYoung residency program, ilDance's project based junior company.

The ilDance Award is the result of a partnership between The Mill and Helpmann Academy. The award provides an opportunity for emerging South Australian dancers to create strong and meaningful connections with both artists and organisations across Sweden and Europe and will potentially become a platform for future creative opportunities and cultural collaborations.
The residency will take a group of 10 young dancers, including Zoe and Felicity, from around the world, across Sweden where the cast, choreographers and creative team will engage with the local community in various activities whilst developing a new production by Israel Aloni and Lee Brummer.

Felicity Boyd said that winning the ilDance Award was a dream come true. “It is an amazing opportunity to work with world-class choreographers and be exposed to a different dance community, and to collaborate with other dance artists. The value of the IlDance award cannot be overstated - to travel internationally and to have the opportunity to expose my practice to new concepts, physicalities and new ways of thinking about dance is a great privilege. I feel so lucky and grateful to have been chosen. I am ecstatic about taking up this chance to further my knowledge and am excited to see where this will take me.”

Zoe Gay said winning the ilAward was an honour. “I am so excited to be given this opportunity to grow and develop as a dancer, under the mentorship of such inspiring choreographers. This experience will no doubt open doors and offer a whole new insight to how I want to portray myself as an artist, how I want to move, and I what I want to further explore.”

Erin Fowler, The Mill Co-Artistic Director, and Jane MacFarlane, Helpmann Academy CEO, said that it was important for young graduate dancers to gain exposure to other influences, build their networks and find opportunities develop as an artist outside of what they already know.

“It can be difficult to find enough opportunities for development locally, so this award will hopefully allow a young dancer to have a significant experience to develop their career, and, to bring that back to the community here in SA.” Erin said.

“The Helpmann Academy is delighted to be collaborating with The Mill Adelaide to enable South Australian dancers to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with ilDance. “ Jane said.

Exhibition Space

John Blines - Memorias Exspirare // June 01 - August 25 2018

The Mill is excited to welcome John Blines as the debut artists in our new visual arts residency series. 

Blines' work, Memorias Exspirare, explores intrusive childhood memories and their effect on mental health. The intent is to process memories that impact Blines' adult psychological health, through making. It is  personal therapy and experimentation within the broader arts in health framework.

Over the course of three months Blines will establish a ‘studio’ within The Mill's Exhibition Space and create  small objects, evolving and growing the collection as he delves deeper into memory. The exhibition also included previous ‘memory’ works as research, inspiration and nostalgia.  

Blines will be present in The Exhibition Space on Sundays, Mondays and Thursday mornings. For more details watch this space and find The Mill's John Blines Face Book Event page.

This exhibition will also feature public engagement sessions, workshops, discussions and participatory making sessions. (Dates and times TBC.)

 

Amaranthine5_preview.jpeg

The Mill's Exhibition Space program presented in partnership with the City of Adelaide, highlights the practice of art-making and aims to make process more available to audiences.

Projects in The Exhibition Space aim to draw audiences deeper into the process of making, positioning them as central to artistic research. The Exhibition Space operates with a studio-like mentality where knowledge arises through participation and experimentation.

The Exhibition Space presents four 12-week residencies per year, alongside short feature exhibitions. Each resident artist will commit time to developing their practice through discussions, forums, workshops, research and artist talks - both with the artistic community and the general public. The Mill will expedite research by facilitating connections to community groups the artist may wish to engage with, to help broaden their practice.

The Mill believes art positions itself within transitions and passages; it opens opportunities for public incursions into the private and vice versa. Our residency program considers this as the potential performativity of practice.

Micheal Getman International Residency // May - June 2018

Getman.jpg

About Masterclasses:

Do you remember to pay attention to your body? To listen to it? What will you hear? In a welcoming, accepting atmosphere and with a constant flow of movement, we will explore and develop the listening and awareness to our body and sensations. With simple improvisational instructions each one will explore and discover, in his /her way, how to interpret the information and become more creative with our body and ourselves.

We will discover texture and speed; skin, bones, muscles, musicality, groove and the flow of energy. We will become aware of the information flowing through our body. It is about a personal sensation, mind and body communication, outer reach, and the discovery of new ways to communicate through the intuitive and intelligent body. Becoming aware of our patterns and habits thus finding new ones. Finding the pleasure and the infinite freedom in communicating with and through our physicality. Specifying intentions and presence. Being inside and outside simultaneously. Dancing to music - moving to our inner pulse.

About the Masterclass:
Led by company artistic director Lucy Guerin herself, the masterclass will be an introduction to some of the ideas and movement processes used to develop SPLIT. It will involve a short warm-up followed by a section of choreography taught by the dancers Melanie Lane and/or Lillian Steiner. There will also be some time to develop some individual material, based on tasks devised for the creation of SPLIT.

About Lucy Guerin Company:
Lucy Guerin Inc is an Australian dance company established in Melbourne in 2002. Renowned for the skill and originality of its small group of performers, it is a flexible organisation dedicated to challenging and extending the art of contemporary dance. The company is committed to the exploration of everyday events and the redefinition of the formal concerns of dance. New productions are generated through an experimental approach to creative process, and may involve voice, video, sound, text and industrial design as well as Guerin’s lucid physical structures. Lucy Guerin Inc. continues to produce inspiring and innovative explorations of contemporary dance that resonate within our culture and the global community. The company values the need for risk, integrity and relevance in the creative process and provides environments, time, space and opportunities to question existing notions of dance. Crucially, this is always a choreographic exploration, striving for visual, emotional and physical revelations that could not be generated or communicated in any other artform than dance.

Lucy Guerin Inc has been a major influence on the growing identity of Australian dance, which stems from the company’s programmatic research into choreographic practice supported through several initiatives.

About The Kagools:
The Kagools are physical comedy duo Claire Ford and Nicky Wilkinson. An equally sought-after headline act both at home and overseas, their critically acclaimed shows have toured extensively, with recent international appearances including Australia, Norway and Vietnam. Incredibly versatile, they delight everyone from raucous late night comedy club crowds to daytime family festivals. Originally created by comedy duo, Wilkinson Ford (Claire Ford "Simply outstanding and has changed my views and opinions on characters, clowning and female acts in general" – Adelaide TalkFringe, and Nicky Wilkinson, Finalist 'So You Think You’re Funny' and 'New Act of the Year' 2013 "Effortless likeability and an excellent comic timing" – Chortle), as recurring characters in their full-length sketch shows, The Kagools proved so popular with audiences that in 2013 the pair shifted their focus to developing shows featuring them exclusively. Wilkinson Ford became The Kagools and never looked back.
