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.
Originate seeks to up-skill early-career artists in the areas of new work development, cross art form practice and to facilitate new collaborations.
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.
Q Theatre, The Joan’s resident theatre-making program.
Performers of various levels of experience are encouraged to apply. A background or interest in devising new work will be an advantage.
There is no charge for participation in this program.
