AUDITION NOTICE: ORIGINATE – apply now to audition for Q Theatre’s young artist project

Q Theatre is holding auditions for 16 young artists, 8 x theatre artists and 8 x musicians, (18 – 26) to take part in the 2018 ‘Originate’ project. This is a skills development project that results in a public outcome. The show will be presented in the Allan Mullins Studio at The Joan, Penrith.

PRODUCER: Q Theatre is the resident theatre making program at The Joan.

ROLES: 16 young artists (18 – 26). Within this we’re looking for 8 theatre makers and 8 musicians.

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

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: ‘Originate’ is where ideas start. An ensemble of emerging theatre makers will collaborate with an ensemble of emerging musicians to create a new show about the here and now. Guided by Co-Directors from theatre and music, the group will move through a workshop process that dreams a new performance from the ground up. ‘Originate’ is a holding title for a performance that is yet to be developed and will be defined by the thoughts, beliefs, hopes and fears of the ensemble. Watch this space.
