The art of careful listening : children as co-artists in the making of live performance
Gattenhof, Sandra Jane (2011) The art of careful listening : children as co-artists in the making of live performance. In Adams, Christine (Ed.) Spaces of Performance Drama Australia National Conference, 31 March to 2 April 2011, State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, Perth, WA.
Since 2007 Kite Arts Education Program (KITE), based at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), has been engaged in delivering a series of theatre-based experiences for children in low socio-economic primary schools in Queensland. The twelve-week workshop experience culminates in a performance developed by the children with the assistance of the teacher artists from KITE for their community and parents/carers in a peak community cultural institution. Using Wartella’s notion of the socially competent child this analysis interrogates the performance product Precious, child participation modes, the intersection between the professional artists, teacher artists and child artists and outcomes in terms of building capacities for the development of social competencies in children.
