Artists collective is ready to model, sing
YVETTE BATTEN - NORTH TARANAKI MIDWEEK
Taranaki talent will be glowing on Saturday.
Members of the Performing Arts Collective are holding a special show, Reminisce, featuring songs from the 1950 to the 1990s.
"The performers can choreograph their own acts," collective chairwoman Keri Elvin said.
"They have the opportunity to do what ever they like with it. We also encourage collaboration between the performers."
Reminisce will feature the talents of about 20 performers. The idea of a collective began in 2010 and it became official at the beginning of 2011.
It aims to develop Taranaki talent and give its members opportunities to perform and share their gifts. One of the ways it does this is by holding several shows each year.
There are now about 80 members in the collective, which helps people with music, modelling, dancing, singing and acting.
"The modelling and the singing are the two areas that are taking off the most."
On the first Thursday of each month models from the collective, in conjunction with various shops, test their skills at Centre City Shopping Centre.
In between the modelling, during the show, singers from the collective perform.
"For some of these singers it's been their first opportunity to perform in front of an audience." Reminisce will be held at the New Plymouth Club from 7pm. Tickets cost $10 and will be sold at Rainbow Reflections or at the door on the night.
