Do you need a space to workshop a new play/performance piece/composition? Well you’re in luck! Citizen Theatre are seeking EOIs from writers, composers, performance artists and anyone else who is looking for the opportunity to develop their piece for up to 1 week. Whether the piece is at an early draft stage or further down the track, we encourage you to apply if what you need to get to the next stage is free space. The space is located in Melbourne's CBD. We are open to all genres of performing arts and as such, projects must have a performative outcome in mind. We are also open to one-off readings, so whatever you're working on, let us know about it!
Why are we doing this? Because we can. We love meeting and working with new creative types and see this as a great way to become more connected to our industry. As an independent theatre company, we know firsthand how challenging it can be to make things happen with limited funds and resources, so we're inviting you to share your work during the day, and support our show at night.
What we will provide:
-A space for up to one week (Mon 8th Feb - Fri 12th Feb, 9am-5pm) with the option of presenting your work
-A Citizen Theatre representative to assist with/supervise the venue
-We can help source actors, a director/dramaturg, a music director as required, however you are welcome to bring any/all of your own. We may have contacts for other artistic personnel too, so just be sure to indicate what you need to make this a success for you.
-An electric keyboard can be provided upon request
What we need from you:
-Completed application (form below)
-Any additional equipment not included in the list of options will need to be provided by you, but let us know what you plan on bringing in
-It's free to take part in the program, however we ask that you come and support our show that will be running in the evenings!
-We also ask that you include us in your social media posts regarding your involvement in the development week
-If you choose to hold a showing we will open our bar to serve refreshments (proceeds will go towards Citizen Theatre)
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions. Otherwise, we look forward to receiving your EOI! Submit by Friday January 15th 2016.
