dLux headed over to Cootamundra for a little under a week in October 2011 to help celebrate the opening of the new Tin Shed Theatre. The Tin Shed Theatre is the latest part of the Cootamundra Creative Arts and Cultural Centre and proves to simply heighten the cultural happenings within the Eastern Riverina Arts Region.
Joel Panther, an iStreet dLux Lab – artist in resident from Mount Gambier, joined the dLux team to help lead a couple of workshops and produce a 3D mapped architectural projection. Joel Panther is Cindy Drennan’s (multimedia projection artist and viewsician) mentee and has been shown the ropes of this illusive art form. It was an amazing experience to be exposed to his knowledge about animation and film.
We were delighted to have some very talented and motivated locals to participate in the workshops held over a couple of days. Participants were involved in the concept development and the production of content to be featured as part of the architectural projection on the opening night. It was hands-on and go, go, go.
The opening of the Tin Shed Theatre was a hive of talent, a variety of activities and matched with great excitement. The audiences of the opening night of performances received a great surprise when the walked out during intermission to see the arts centre lit up with faces of the community, sheep and some seemingly bright paintwork.
This weekend project was facilitated by dLux Media Arts in partnership with Cootamundra Creative Arts and Cultural Centre, The Wired Lab, Artstart and Eastern Riverina Arts.
