Micro Commission: Micro Performance – Culture @ Home

Liv Art Local CIC are excited to announce our latest opportunity for creatives in the UK.  With news that live performance still cannot take place, but that soon families will be able to spend more time with friends and family members outside of their home, we are looking to commission a micro play/performance (between 5-10 minutes in length), that can be performed by a group of socially distanced people at home without any prior experience or training.

We view this as a great way to bring theatre into the home this summer and to bond people by creating something together, we are also keen to support UK talent, although we can only offer a modest sum of £250, and to take their work to a wider audience.

We will be inviting people to share their performances with us if they feel happy to share and we hope to be able to upload some of these to our website in the months ahead.

This opportunity is open to all creatives, whether from a theatre, writing, art, music, or dance background, and can take the form of a mirco play, a way of creating music/sound together, or a movement piece.

It is up to you how you convey this, however, all works must be on the theme of connection.

To apply for this opportunity please fill out our brief application form and submit an outline of your idea (max 250 words).  The deadline is the 7th August and we will contact the selected applicant by 10th August and would look to have the work, whether that be a script, a video lesson, a sheet of instructions etc. .. completed and uploaded to our website by 22nd August.

 

If you would rather you can send a video application via WeTransfer to us at help@liveartlocal.co.uk using the application form questions, and up to 5 minutes to explain your idea.

Payment will be made the following Friday (28th August) via Paypal or bank payment.

 

Culture @ Home week 3: Rosa Torr – Playwrighting for ZOOM performance

Join playwright and dramaturg, Rosa Torr as she hosts a workshop focused on writing for performance over ZOOM.  This session uses automatic writing exercises and gets the writer to think about how they can use the medium as a core part of the storytelling experience.  Due to its length it does not get down to the minutiae of writing for Zoom but seats it within the general framework for writing for performance, because of this the workshop may be best for those newer to playwrighting.
