UKARIA residencies to Fiona Hill and Paul Castles
Composers Fiona Hill and Paul Castles have been announced as the latest recipients of residencies offered by the Australia Council for the Arts in partnership with the UKARIA Cultural Centre in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
AMC-represented Fiona Hill heads to UKARIA later in 2021 to work on a site-specific short film with collaborators including Seraphim Trio, director/choreographer Sue Healey and dancer/choreographer Christopher Hill.
'The film will draw on our response to being in and resonating with a specific place, in this instance the grounds and buildings of UKARIA. We will also collaborate with the acclaimed Seraphim Trio, workshopping and recording the score for the film during the residency', Hill said.
Composer Paul Castles will use the residency to develop a new work of immersive music-driven multisensory theatre for Light Adelaide. He will be joined by an interdisciplinary team of collaborators including pianist and creative producer Nicole Brady, and sound designer and engineer Bob Scott, among many others.
'We'll be exploring and recording music, capturing 360 audio and visuals from the surrounding South Australian landscapes, and preparing an initial workshop presentation to be shared at UKARIA', Castles explained.
Residents will spend 10 days at the UKARIA Cultural Centre at Mt Barker, with exclusive access to facilities including a state-of-the-art recital centre, and adjacent accommodation in the picturesque Adelaide Hills.
