The Catapult Festival
The National Youth Circus & Physical Theatre Festival
In 2012 Rebekah took an internship with the Bathurst Catapult Festival. Her main role was acting as Personal Assistant to Festival Coordinator Peta Johnston, but she also performed re-worked excerpts from No, You Eat It! - a 2011 University production, at the Opening night of the festival and the Renegade Show.
Catapult is a biennial festival with a focus of Circus & Physical Theatre, taking centre stage in Bathurst NSW. The first festival was in September 2005 and the festival focuses on emerging artists and developing industry standards.
Catapult is the first festival in Australia to showcase the skills of young circus and physical theatre performers from across Australia and from abroad. Catapult is not only a festival for young performers but also attracts some of the best adult professional performers currently practicing. The Catapult organisers have observed that the interaction between these youth and adult performers is an inspiration to all participants regardless of their age or skill level.
