Richard Layzell – Notes from Perth
 
Day 19: Friday 10 Oct 03

  1. Practicals and Methods 3. Freeflow  
  Midland. The furthest northern town/suburb in the Perth conurbation. Its own railway town. And the NRLA [National Review of Live Art] is based in the vast now-empty railway sheds.

How did I manage to forget my camcorder battery charger? Not a problem in Wagga with other people's technology everywhere. This packing error may impact on the workshops and the performance.

Arrived a day early to scout out locations for the workshops.
The lodging [Swan River Lodge, Bassendean (birthplace of Rolf Harris)] is right alongside the tranquil Swan River [blatantly non-aboriginal name for such a swathe of water]. Good spot for early morning Tai Chi. Memories of Midland last year [was here for the first NRLA] but the town seems more distinctive. Not Perth at all, but a working-class gritty town.

Called Swan Taxis [tel: 1313330] struck lucky with the driver, Stevan. Lived in the area all his life. Mine of local information. Destination Ellenbrook. Then took me on an unpaid excursion. Ellenbrook is as strange as I’ve been led to believe. Stranger. A manufactured cosmetic community of single storey houses way north of the north [Midland] and due to house 20,000 people. Colossal amount of landscaping. No-one around.
Train to Perth city looking for possible routes for the silent walk. Moving back across into the facilitator role/space. Can the two states inform each other even more? Is this easier than planning the performance?
