QPAC to welcome Aboriginal Performing Arts showcase

QPAC to welcome Aboriginal Performing Arts showcase
October 2, 2015

The Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) will showcase the next generation of young Indigenous performers when Knock Knock comes to the Cremorne Theatre stage at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) from 5th to 7th November 2015.

Knock Knock showcases the individual talents of the ACPA students with music, acting and dance to create a unique tapestry of performance that shines the spotlight on themes of choice, opportunity and freedom.

ACPA provides training excellence for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in contemporary performing arts. Students of ACPA develop the skills, expertise and practical experience necessary to succeed in the Australian performing arts industry.

Knock Knock is being directed by the Heads of Department Stella Majewsky (Acting), Bradley Chatfield (Dance) and Nathaniel Andrew (Music) and will showcase some of the best new talent emerging from ACPA.

ACPA Chief Executive Debbie Wilks said ACPA is a launch pad into the wider performing arts, explaining “we love being able to work with QPAC to showcase some of Australia’s most talented young Indigenous artists.

“Knock Knock provides opportunities for our outstanding students to learn every facet of a professional production in a supportive environment, while giving the public a sneak peak into Australia’s Indigenous artists of the future.”

QPAC is committed to investing in the future of Queensland’s arts community and is constantly seeking out meaningful collaborations and partnerships, taking seriously its role as a large organisation within an intricate cultural ecosystem. Partnerships like those with ACPA enable students to work with a team of professionals on a main stage production, providing invaluable opportunities to learn.
