opportunity: call-out for artists to participate in the Works series at Brighton Dome

Brighton Dome have a great opportunity for artists to participate in a work in development platform, see below for more details…

The Works is an opportunity for artists to present their work in development on Wed 4 Mar 2015. The particular focus is cross-artform and interdisciplinary exploration across theatre, dance and music.

At the heart of The Works is a dialogue between artists and audiences. It is an opportunity for artists to seek the opinions of the audience they wish to attract, and an opportunity for people who care about performance to engage in collective dramaturgy, supporting artists to envisage the choices and possibilities available to them.

Dramaturg Lou Cope will be the host and facilitator for the evening, presenting excerpts by both established and emerging artists from across the region. This is the second event in The Works series.

3-4 applicants will be selected to present short 10-15 minute excerpts of work in development as part of The Works event. Selection will be made by members of the Dome’s programming team in consultation with Lou Cope. The artists will have the opportunity to work in the Studio Theatre for one session in preparation for the presentation, with technical support from the Dome. As part of the presentation, constructive feedback from the audience can be sought as useful to each artist.

Guiding principles for selecting work for The Works:

• The work must be new and in development (not yet launched or premiered)

• Selection will be based on innovation, quality and potential excellence

• Focus will be particularly on supporting cross-art form and interdisciplinary exploration

• Application are welcomed from both emerging and established artists
