Congratulations to Vamos Theatre Artist in Residence Clint Bolster for winning an award with his first solo full mask theatre piece.
Clint, an Australian performer and Artistic Director of Homunculus Theatre Company, was Artist in Residence at Vamos for two months earlier this year, observing, taking part in projects and workshops, and working specifically on making a short solo performance using mask.
The resulting piece, Dennis, won Clint the Theatre Stand 1 Audience Choice Award at The Short & Sweet Festival, Queensland, and led to a further performance in the Gala Finals in September.
Culture Box Australia commented on the performance, “...all of his emotion must be conveyed through the performer’s body and Bolster perfects this physicality, stringing the audience along making them laugh or sigh with awkward empathy (sometimes both at the same time)."
A huge well done to Clint from everyone at Vamos Theatre!
