Q Theatre is holding auditions for up to 10 young artists (18 – 26) to take part in the 2020 ‘St Marys Kid’ Young Artist Ensemble. This is a skills development project that results in a public outcome. The show will be presented on the 15 & 16 of May in St Marys (venue and time TBC).

PRODUCER: Q Theatre is the resident theatre making program at The Joan.

ROLES: up to10 young artists (18 – 26). Within this we’re looking for artists from a variety of creative disciplines.

EXPERIENCE: Performers of various levels of experience are encouraged to apply. A background or interest in devising new work will be an advantage.

OBJECTIVE: The Young Artist Ensemble seeks to up-skill early-career artists in the areas of new work development, cross art form practice and to facilitate new collaborations.

THE PRESENTATION: An ensemble of emerging artists will collaborate together under the direction of Bernadette Fam to create a new work that speaks to the themes and place of St Marys. The group will move through a workshop process that dreams a new performance from the ground up. The performance, that is yet to be developed, will be defined by the thoughts, beliefs and experiences of the ensemble. Watch this space.
