The rehearsed reading of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People presented at the Hoskins Centre Theatre at The Armidale School as part of the Sustainable Living Expo 2011 in Armidale is hailed as a success.

SVM provided the concept and Felt Tip’s Chris Curcuruto and Alex Robson took the idea and ran with it! They have been invited by Emma Buzo to present a series of 5 playreadings at the Hoskins Centre in 2012 and will present again at next year’s Expo.


Felttip Theatre presents a rehearsed reading of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People during the 2011 Sustainable Living Expo (Slex 2011) in Armidale NSW.

Felttip is an emergent professional theatre venture being lead by Chris Curcuruto and Alex Robson – both UNE Theatre graduates. SVM is engaged in mentoring through a new Yotuh Enterprise venture and through creative collaboration. SVM‘s proposal to present the Ibsen text in the context of a three day event that showcases sustainable living, brings to the community an event specific cultural product. This is in keeping with the work this community has done for over 3 years througth the New England Sustainability Strategy (NESS).

Slex is sponsored by the Armidale Dumaresq Council, UNE, Starfish Enterprises Network, Essential Energy & The Border- Revers-Gwydir CMA and includes EdFest – hosted by Starfish Enterprises Network, an SVM partner on several community based ventures since 2009.

For their first public performance event, Felttip Theatre has partnered with The Armidale School’s Hoskins Centre and members of the local theatre and arts community.

Here’s their first eFlyer, promoting the event.

Collaboration with Sue Fell and students – concept, design, staging, lighting, visuals & audio design.

Played UNE Drama Studio, Armidale NSW.Directed by Sue Fell, devised with Arts & Theatre Students. Oct 9,10 & 11, 2011

Each group chose a section of non-theatre text – an African folk tale; passages from novels by Calvino, Allende, Marquez; song lyric; transcription of news stories; public speech etc And guided by the work of a selected theatre practitioner they had studied, the students gave expression to the effect that the World Trade Centre disaster had on their lives and view of the world they have grown up in. These students were all children when the disaster took place.
