Picture This

Hi folks,

I’m doing my first blog entry on behalf of the production team for A Thousand Cranes. There’s a lot happening as we prepare for rehearsals which start this month. I, for one, have composed the music and you can read about it in my latest blog entry Solitude: at the Composer’s Desk at The Serenade Files.

A couple of months ago, the cast and creatives had our first meet and greet photoshoot with Alannah James. I liked the concept of a photo within a photo so I brought my camera along to let you all take a peek behind the scenes.

Be sure to sign up as a GC groupie and follow The Gemini Collective on Facebook and Instagram to get the latest updates about our production. We are all very excited to share this story with you.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
Composer /MD

Tickets on sale now!

If you are anything like us, you have a house full of kids stuff they get for Christmas which piles up and stashed then given to the op shop during the obligatory school holiday clean out…. hence why we started buying ‘experiences’ rather than stuff.

Theatre tickets are our obvious fav (waiting for Aladdin to be released!), as is the Adelaide Zoo pass.

If you have children around Yr 3 age and upwards, we would love for you to come and see our 2019 Adelaide Fringe performance ‘A Thousand Cranes’. It will be an experience they talk about long after a toy has been forgotten.

Amazing Adelaide photoshoot destination

On the hunt for the ideal photoshoot location, a quick Google search for “origami mural Adelaide” brought up this stunning artwork painted by the incredibly talented Ella Simpson from Ink and Ruby Studios in Adelaide.

Without a doubt it was perfect for us, suiting our Gemini Collective colour scheme perfectly, and so bright and eye-catching!

Painted on the side of The Vietnamese Laundry Street Food and Bar, 152 Sturt St Adelaide (best Roast Pork btw!), this large scale mural became the integral backdrop for our first cast meet and photoshoot.

There were so many different angles, interesting close-up pockets of colour and contrasting black lines of the cranes, we have an extensive collection of photos now to use for our season of A Thousand Cranes.

Much thanks to Alannah James from Little Darling Films https://www.littledarlingfilms.com.au for her photography skills and of course Ella Simpson for the artwork existing .

Love & Chookas,

Sarah and Anthony xxx
