Southbank Centre is looking for 10 up and coming writers to take part in Indiana Jones and the Extra Chair, a very exciting project with spoken word artist Simon Mole involving workshops and performances in two live shows at Southbank Centre:

Simon Mole’s ground-breaking one man show is a spoken word adventure that takes place over the evening meal. Every family dinner needs a hero. Mike is twenty-three years old but still asks ‘what would Indy do?’ at times of crisis, and it’s crunch time when we meet him at a busy train station on his way to his Mum’s.

The project is an opportunity for you to work with spoken word artist Simon Mole and critically acclaimed site-specific theatre director Peader Kirk on a series of workshops where you will create new work which will be performed alongside Simon in the live shows on Monday 14th & Tuesday 15th October at Southbank Centre.

Eligibilty:  Are you:

  • A poet/spoken word artist and keen to work on your writing and performance skills?
