Indian Acts is a series of public presentations, occurring throughout the year and includes staged readings, works in progress, musical concerts, dance performances and excerpts from pieces we have in development.
On Friday Sept 4th, starting with a BBQ social, Full Circle is honoured to welcome visiting Indigenous performer and Drag-Artist Ben Graetz (a.k.a Miss Ellaneous) to Coast Salish Territory to present a special Artist-Talk. Ben will be sharing with us some of his experiences over the years of working in the arts, as well talking about his own work as a cutting edge, two-spirited performer in his homeland of Australia and abroad.
Ben Graetz is a descendant of the Muran and Malak Malak Clans in the Northern Territory and of Badu Island on the Torres Strait Islands of Australia. He is a versatile and original artist who is passionate about creating new Australian work. He is interested in all elements of the performing arts and is keen to combine his creative talents to develop theatre that moves, excites and challenges an audience. He would like to use his producing, directing, performance and writing skills to create and be a part of work that is new, innovative and dynamic.
Open to the public- all welcome! Donations appreciated!
Participants are encouraged to attend all workshops in the series. Advance registration encouraged but not required. Space is limited.
WHERE: Full Circle Office, 1577 W. Georgia St. Vancouver
