FREE WORKSHOPS WITH KUTCHA EDWARDS & NICKKI ASHBY

FAC_logo-sm 2012

What:  In association with the upcoming performance of Blak Cabaret at Frankston Arts Centre, Kutcha Edwards and Nikki Ashby will deliver 2 free workshops at Cube 37 on October 25.

 SONGWRITING WORKSHOP WITH RENOWNED SIGNER / SONGWRITER KUTCHA EDWARDS – 2-4pm By telling the stories behind his songs Kutcha explains and demonstrates his own style of song writing. Processes such as developing lyrics, rhythm, verses, the chorus, an intro and outro will be demonstrated.

 ‘Each individual can have their own form of writing a song. I use my experiences and those of my family to write my songs. I explore a theme or a concept, write down words and thoughts and then ultimately create a rhythmic poem which are the lyrics for my songs and the continuing story that is my Songline.’

 For many years Kutcha was the lead singer in legendary Aboriginal band Blackfire who originally formed as a community fund raising band and who ended up touring extensively throughout Australia and internationally to China, Mexico and Japan. The band released two albums, A Time To Dream (1987) & Nightvision (1988) and supported Carlos Santana on an Australian wide tour. In 2001 Kutcha was awarded National Indigenous Person of the Year for his exceptional leadership in performance and education. In the same year he also received the Best Male Artist of the Year at the Deadly Vibes Awards.

Kutcha went solo in 2002 forming the Kutcha Edwards Band and has to date, recorded three albums, Cooinda (2002) and Hope (2007) and Blak & Blu (2012). Kutcha’s music follows the great Aboriginal tradition of story-telling through song, and taking audiences on a memorable journey through music and theatre. Launched as a playwright in 2007 with family tribute Songlines of a Mutti Mutti Man at the Melbourne Arts Centre, Kutcha subsequently toured both this production and its sequel yuyukatha.

HIP HOP DANCE WITH NIKKI ASHBY – 11am-1pm This fun workshop on Nikki’s powerful and funky Indigenous-influenced hip hop will begin with warm-up body isolations, and move on to creating and developing routines taught to participants, ending with a short showcase to other participants in the workshop. It will include a quick trip through hip hop history and foundational moves. Throughout, Nikki will explain her own background and cultural belongings, as well as give explanations of cultural movements. 

Both workshops for participants 13 years and over.

Blak Cabaret community workshops are supported by Frankston Arts Centre, VicHealth, Malthouse Theatre & Artistic Merit.
