NZ Body Art Showcase 2013 – “the Circus”

Media Alert:
For Immediate Release

The Circus Rolls Closer Into Town

NZ Body Art Showcase 2013 – “the Circus”

Applications have now closed for another year as the NZ Body Art Showcase 2013 draws closer for Auckland audiences, as “The Circus” turns the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna into a Big Top on September 21st.

There are currently 53 entries, with the number expected to increase as the final applications are filed away, with a mere four from Australia this year – proving that the industry within New Zealand in terms of special effects, make up and body art is thriving at an ever bigger rate than expected.

It’s been many years since the showcase has housed seven categories, but the body of talent on offer in 2013 had lead to this expansion once again and includes a brand new category: the ASB Community Trust Open Category, specific to this year’s theme.

This year’s presentation also has a very unique aspect – there will be no MC, nor a voiceover. Instead, members of Silver Circle will help with the category transition through their shared passion of circus performance. The only utterance of a word will be the presentation of the awards – that’s it!

Students from the Apollo Theatre School will also be performing this year – with a dance number wearing and using UV art, inspired by children under the age of 18. The masks, props and costumes will have all been produced by the under-18 category finalists as part of the InspireNZ Theatrical Production Awards (whose entries are still open until September 13th).

Keen supporter, Sir Richard Taylor, will not be joining the judging team this year due to an overseas commitment however there will be a Weta Workshop representative to continue the massive support Weta offers the event each year.

This year’s selection of judges includes international artist Lynn Jamieson, who while in the country will also lead a series of workshops  on the 19th of September – which more workshops taking place on the 14th and 15th.
