Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake is offering artists the chance to test ideas in front of an audience next year.
Open Space, on March 12, will allow performers to test out ideas, experiment, and get feedback in a supportive and creative space.
While Open Space is open to everyone, the theatre will be prioritising the work of Cumbrian based artists in the Open Space programme and actively encourage proposals from ethnically diverse artists, LGBTQI+ artists, and artists who are d/Deaf and disabled.
Artists are asked to send in a proposal and the theatre says it would love to hear about all kinds of untried and untested work, from spoken word to music, dance to new plays, comedy to performance art and much more.
A payment of £200 towards expenses will be available to each group/act selected.
Proposals, of a maximum of 200 words, can be submitted either in writing or by recording a short video of up to 60 seconds, explaining the idea.
Email proposals to [email protected] by Monday January 11.
