Markwell in 2016
2016 is a year for change at Markwell Presents! Our new website is up and running, including a new online store to make it easier to buy our teaching resources directly. If you can read this, it means the site is working - hurray for the internet!!
We also have some new faces at Markwell Presents! Nathan Sibthorpe is stepping up as our new Creative Director, coordinating all in-school activities including workshops, masterclasses, and artist residency projects.
This comes at a time when both founding directors are now working as full time teachers at high schools in Brisbane. Brad Jennings and Steven Maxwell will continue to manage and mentor the company, but support Nathan in leading our in-school team and planning new creative ventures for the company.
Nathan has been working on projects with Markwell Presents since 2009 and has extensive experience in Cinematic Theatre production and theory. Nathan also teaches performance studies at QUT, directs the Queensland Short+Sweet Festival, and maintains a creative practice as a freelance theatre director and AV designer.
Nathan is joined by Nevin Howell, our new resident artist working direct in-schools on a range of projects. Nevin comes to us fresh from Fine Arts at QUT, and brings an enthusiasm for directing and cinematic design. When not staging cinematic theatre work, Nevin can be found practicing Physical Theatre with Zen Zen Zo Theatre Company.
