Originate 2020 – Audition Call Out

Are you a young actor, writer, musician, digital artist or spoken word poet? Q Theatre is seeking artists aged 18 – 26 to audition to take part in the 2020 Originate project, The Big Blue. This is a skills development project that results in a public outcome.


THE BIG BLUE (ORIGINATE)
There’s nothing but blue for days.

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

THE SHOW
Guided by director Nick Atkins, the successful applicants will move through a workshop process that dreams a new performance from the ground up. Using The Big Blue as a theme, the ensemble will develop the show collectively, based on their thoughts, beliefs, hopes and fears. They will bring the new show together and perform it for a public audience over a three-night season in the Allan Mullins Studio at The Joan.

PRODUCER
Q Theatre, The Joan’s resident theatre-making program.

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

COST
There is no charge for participation in this program.
