The annual Shearwater Wearable Arts event is just a few weeks away and this years performance entitled Homecoming: Labyrinth of Twists and Turns is buzz is building at the school.

This will be Shearwater’s 15th editor of the walking art works, and with a prize-pool of almost $8000 for the best everyone is getting pretty excited.

As always there will be intricate and extravagant garments, created by students, staff and the wider community, on show in an all-singing all-dancing theatrical spectacular.

A highlight of the school’s performing arts calendar, the show features around 200 students taking on roles as musicians, actors, writers, filmmakers and editors, lighting and audio technicians, carpenters, dancers, singers, tailors, artists, set and prop designers and makers, choreographers, photographers, graphic designers, stage hands, models, judges, ushers, and caterers.

The performances will take place in the Shearwater Hall from November 7 to 10 and will commence at 8pm, with refreshments available from 6.30pm. Winners will be announced on opening night.
