Springwood High School presents RESPONSE (Responding through a variety of creative practices including dance, drama and music to the work of contemporary artist Tamara Mendels)
Springwood High School has a long history of excellence in the Creative and Performing Arts. Over recent years the school has developed a timetable of performances that seeks to involve as many students as possible in Music, Dance, Drama, Poetry and the Visual Arts. This timetable revolves around our biennial musical which over the past four years has developed a reputation for outstanding performance.
In 2015, as we are not working towards a musical, Springwood High School is trying something new. After discussions about our last showcase night, we decided to build the show around a pre-existing art practice. Allowing students to respond and in doing so allowing more freedom to create and explore their creative mediums. In our search for artistic infuence we came across the work of Tamara Mendels. A local artists who in recent years has gained a reputation for her unique and risk-taking art practice both at home and abroad. As a Creative and Performing Arts faculty we thought she was the perfect choice, as her gestural work provided both the structure and abstract freedom for a range of creative pursuits. In addition to the concept we were pleased to hear that Tamara and the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre were excited about the idea, and have been incredibly generous with their time and access to Tamara’s work.
It has been pleasing to hear that so many of our students have visited Tamara’s recent exhibition, and gained a deep appreciation for both the aesthetic and conceptual aspects of her exhibition ‘White Out’.
Across the show you will see a number of visual and conceptual references to Tamara’s work, and we challenge the audience to consider how these works on stage and screen are linked to the work of Tamara Mendels.
