Ivy Rayne

“The feet may learn the steps, but only the spirit can dance”.

It was something that was said to Ivy as a child, but the words never found true meaning until much later in life. Ivy’s journey into the arts started with ballet at a young age, adding in Contemporary dance in her teens. It wasn’t long before she sought to move that dance into the air, starting with Pole Dancing, moving to Aerial Silks, and finally getting completely lost in the world of Circus both in the air and on the ground. Ivy has a love for creativity, drawing on her extensive experiences and bringing them together to produce unique acts.

She placed 2nd Runner-Up in the WA Pole Championships Amateur division 2016, and 2nd Runner-Up in the Professional division the following year.

She now coaches and performs with Kinetica Circus, and can often be found hanging out in the air in the Silks, Lyra or Cube, or on the ground spinning Hula Hoops, Leviwand, throwing a Rope Dart around, lighting things on fire, or just looking for new things to try.

Anthony & Fay

Anthony and Fay met performing at FRINGE WORLD in 2015, only to end up falling in love and spending the coming years cultivating their performing craft together.
Fay practiced gymnastics in her youth, later rediscovering the love for acrobatics in her adult years through pole and circus arts. When she was enamoured by her pole practice, she placed first in her amateur debut in 2017 and also won miss pole WA 2019.

Anthony has spent the majority of his adult life learning, practicing and teaching different movement practices. After a decade of traveling the world to improve his physical ability and knowledge, he found himself falling in love with circus and performance. The result of these two lovebirds is a unique blend of movement, acrobatics, dance and aerial circus

Jordan Zindani

Perth based musician JORDAN ZINDANI has been performing in Perth’s music scene for the last 8 years. Jordan started playing music from a young age learning Piano, Viola and Singing which lead to playing in school orchestras and choirs. In 2009 she attended Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Performing Arts (Education Studies).

In 2010 she started working at WEMA West End Music Academy as a singing teacher, where she realised her dreams of singing in a band. She took the opportunity to play Keyboard in one of WEMA’s graduated bands "Madam Montage" in 2014, which then lead to her also singing in the band. After a few years of "Madam Montage" gigging around Perth, Geraldton and Kalbarri, the band ended in 2016. Jordan still had the passion to be singing on stage, so when the opportunity came in 2017 to fill in with another local cover band, “The Padlocks”, she jumped at the chance. After a few fill in gigs, they asked her to be a permanent member in the band. "The Padlocks” gigged around Perth’s iconic live music venues such as, The Mustang Bar, Newport Hotel(Fremantle) and The Saint (Scarborough) for a few years before they decided to go their separate ways.

After “The Padlocks” Jordan decided to release her original music which she had been quietly writing for many years. She released her debut single “Feel This” in May 2019 which received a great reaction, so she decided to continue releasing more of her songs. So far she has three singles out including “Don’t U Dare” (2020) and her latest release, “Whirlwind Romance” (2021), both of which were recorded and produced with her current colleague at WEMA, Jukebox Moneypants.

Jordan enjoys all aspects of releasing music, including the visual side, having created and performed in her own music videos for “Feel This” and “Whirlwind Romance” with Perth’s up and coming production company, Gordonco Visuals.

Since taking some time off from gigging around Perth, she has now joined two new bands and is ready to get back on the stage. "The Stringbirds” is a new acoustic corporate cover band, featuring a collection of highly experienced musicians from diverse backgrounds, and “Juniper” a new cover band who will be playing at Perth local Bars. Jordan is set to release her fourth single mid 2021.

TAG portrait

TAG

TAG is not just about acting. We pride ourselves in creating a supportive atmosphere where the students can be themselves, to create, develop, follow their passion and become a cohesive unit whereby, as is often the case in life, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

TAG meets one Saturday a month, 11am – 2pm, exploring different aspects of theatre, for example; improvisations, scene work, directing, voice, mime, mask, stage combat and acting for film. Plus an annual production.

We were formed in 2014, with membership going from strength to strength. With the support of Garrick Theatre, fees are low $30 per calendar year, opening up inclusive opportunities for all. Many of our productions have been directed or co-directed by students. Their creativity and dedication are a testament to them. We strongly encourage the students to become a part of the theatre on stage and off and to aim high.

Natalia Smith is the TAG's Choreographer, and her life revolves around theatre and dance. Starting off in a variety of roles within Teens at Garrick’s (TAG) One Act shows, she was cast in Garrick Theatre’s The Way of The World, directed by Raymond Omodei, in 2018. Later that year, she was awarded one of two scholarships by her dance school Irina Asotoff Ballet School. Since then, she has studied acting and dance through short courses at WAAPA and worked on multiple productions. These include TAG’s Agatha Rex as chorus and as choreographer (2019); Murdoch Theatre Company’s Alice: Through the Looking Glass as Alice (2019); Yirra Yaakin’s collaboration with WAYTCO as a part of the Ngalaka Daa Ensemble (2020); Garrick Theatre’s The Hound of the Baskervilles as chorus mentor (2020) and 2021 has been a busy year, with Marloo Theatre’s Robin Hood: A Pantomime as dance captain and supporting chorus; Garrick Theatre’s Clue On Stage as the maid, Yvette. Natalia directed TAG’s 2021 production, Trap, which was very successful.
