The Q is holding auditions for 16 young artists, 8 x theatre artists and 8 x musicians, (16 – 26) to take part in the 2017 ‘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: The Q is the resident theatre making program at The Joan.
ROLES: 16 young artists (16 – 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. Eight emerging theatre makers will collaborate with eight emerging musicians to create a new show about the here and now. Guided by Co-Directors from theatre and music the ensemble 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 emerge and will be defined by the thoughts, beliefs, hopes and fears of the ensemble. Watch this space.
