FORMER BOUDDI FOUNDATION RECIPIENT TAKES LEAD ROLE AT SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE: The first recipient of John Bells Bouddi Foundation grant some 11 years ago is about to step onto the Sydney Opera House stage in the lead role of Claudel. Imogen Sage was in her late teens when she was awarded the grant, and used it to further her training in the United Kingdom, resulting in a BA Acting at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. I had a book of Shakespeare in my bedroom and Id often read the stories, memorising my favourite parts in each play, she said.

She praised the Bouddi Foundation, saying it gave her the chance of a lifetime and urged other hopeful artistic folks on the Coast to follow their dreams and strive for success. Imogen will chat with David Wicks in Sounds this Sunday night from 6 on Coast FM. Direct from the Festival OFF dAvignon and Lathenee Thetre LouisJouvet Paris, Wendy Becketts critically acclaimed CLAUDEL is a thrilling combination of narrative, dance, sculpture and music, reimagining the story of one of the worlds greatest and most misunderstood artists, Camille Claudel.

Written and directed by acclaimed playwright Wendy Beckett and choreographed by the internationally celebrated Meryl Tankard, CLAUDEL explores the life of the highly talented and rebellious young sculptor and her complex relationship with legendary artist, Auguste Rodin. Set in 1880s Paris, this haunting drama unflinchingly questions the notions of genius versus madness and the consequences for those who chose lives that are deemed too different for society to tolerate. Being staged in the Playhouse, Claudel runs until Sunday May 9.
