True North Marion

A new and exciting opportunity is emerging in the City of Marion

We are extremely happy to announce that True North is coming to Marion.   Commencing in Term 4 2017 True North Marion will emerge.

AJZ Productions has recently been supported by the City of Marion to start a new exciting chapter:  “True North Marion” 20 scholarships valued at $800 each will be offered to young people aged 13 to 17 residing in the City of Marion to attend weekly workshops at the Marion Cultural Centre.

An open Workshop/Auditions will be conducted on Monday 9th of October from 2pm to 4pm at The Marion Cultural Centre and workshops will begin in term 4, 2017.   True North Marion will provide Youth interested in the arts a free, social, collaborative and safe place in which they will be able to express themselves to teach performance skills and practices.  It aims to break down cultural barriers, promotes self-esteem, confidence and provide high level tuition.  The Ensemble will be led by Artistic Director Alirio Zavarce an award-winning theatre maker and performer and a team of arts professionals.
The pilot project will be ‘A Sense of Home’ – finding the voice of the youth in the ensemble.   Through a series of workshops participants will explore who they are, where they live, what they do and what is their cultural background.  What are the links that bring us together within the local area and explore the issues for the individual and the community.  The aim is to learn by creating to give participants skills, obtain a sense of bonding, and find the strengths, identity and pride in the place where we live.

“The opportunity to engage and expand our program for young people in the city of Marion is literally a dream come true for True North – we are so excited by this new chapter in our journey as a cutting-edge youth theatre organisation”
