Gasworks Arts Park has started accepting applications for their latest creative development program for independent artists in Melbourne: Ignite Gasworks.
Ignite Gasworks is a performing arts development program, which is designed to provide four independent artists or companies with the opportunity to develop a new drama, dance, musical theatre or circus production. As part of the program, the new performance art will be developed at a professional venue over a two week period in February 2014.
Applications for work in any stage of production are accepted from any performing arts form, including (but not necessarily restricted to) theatre, circus, dance or puppetry.
In regards to the creation itself, Gasworks is looking for new work, which will be powerful due to the fact it will:
- Clearly communicate engaging stories or captivating commentary,
- Aim for an arresting style in design and/or visual presentation.
- Transcend personal expression to create work that will be of interest to an audience.
- Show dedication to excellence in craft.
- Have a creative team which radiates energy and passion.
All details about Ignite Gasworks, including a downloadable application pack and an online application form, can be found at http://www.gasworks.org.au/whats-on/ignite. The entries will close on Sunday 1st December 2013.
Time to get out there and get that creative spirit on!
