New and Emerging Perspectives - opportunities for East Midlands theatre makers
Emerging Perspectives has been designed in response to a need to help focus, refresh and instil confidence in the next generation of theatre makers. Made up of three strands:
The EP Company presents an opportunity for aspiring actors, directors, designers (set, costume, lighting or sound) composers or stage managers aged 18+, to take part in a brand new company of emerging East Midlands theatre-makers. We are recruiting a training company to create and showcase work from October 2013 - July 2014. Auditions will take place at New Perspectives between 28 - 30 August and as a result the deadline for applications has been extended to 16 August.
We are seeking 4 writers to join the EP Company to develop a piece of theatre tailor-made for the company. As a new writer this opportunity to develop a unique theatrical voice. The attachment runs from January - June 2014 and the application deadline is 24 October.
New Perspectives launces a new 'long play' competition, open to writers who are from or based in the East Midlands. Artistic Director Jack McNamara said: 'If you have a distinctive voice, an unexpected story or an adaptation that will make us look at theatre afresh, this full-length playwriting competition is for you'
The deadline for submissions is Thursday 9 January 2014.
