A highlight of the school’s performing arts calendar, WAVE is embedded in the curriculum (and also a ton of fun!), with around 200 students taking on roles as dancers, musicians, actors, writers, filmmakers and editors, lighting and audio technicians, carpenters, tailors, set and prop designers and builders, choreographers, photographers, stage hands, models and caterers.
“It's always an exciting moment when the competition garments, created by students, staff and the wider creative community, begin arriving at the school,” says WAVE Director Josh Rushton.
“In this sense, Shearwater’s Wearable Arts event has built, over more than two decades, a true artistic interface between high school and world. A competition that goes out to the community; a high school production that builds an incredible show around an inspiring theme; and finally the integration of competition entries that brings the show to life.”
