Breaksea is an Albany based arts organisation dedicated to promoting the benefits of creativity and participation in the arts within the community. Last year, in March when the Covid-19 Pandemic hit, Breaksea was engaging with 800 performers across Western Australia culminating in a full scale original production By Other Eyes set for May at the Perth Concert Hall. “We were devastated to cancel this production and ground 800 performers. However we rallied and took the opportunity to think innovatively on how we could connect with the community during this difficult time.” Matt Ward, Breaksea Artistic Director explains. “12 months later we are presenting the Breaksea Film Art Trail.”
The trail consists of seven gorgeous photographic portraits shot by Nic Duncan & Luke Hetherington presented across local businesses around Albany’s CBD. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring together local businesses, and the arts in a fun and interactive manner for the community.” Ward said. On entering the businesses audiences scan the QR Code on the posters and watch the films created by Rob Castiglione & John Carberry featuring local Great Southern Artists and Cultural Workers celebrating their richness of culture, creative process & performance.
