Eighteen IdeasTap members will get the chance to put on a production in the house of a theatre industry big wig in front of an industry audiencePlease note: This brief is only open to IdeasTap members based in London and the South East.
Scottee and Ideas Tap are looking for new writers who want to bypass posting their scripts to theatres and programmers and instead present their text in the homes of leading theatre producers and artistic directors. They’re looking for innovative texts that can work in people’s kitchens, living rooms, or even toilets.
Eighteen IdeasTap members will win this brief. Scottee and his producer will get them ready for one of the six sharings in October/November 2014. They will receive direct feedback from the host and their invited guests – all of whom are considered industry big wigs. This is an opportunity for you to get your work in front of the people who have the power to commission, programme or stage it.
You will perform the work yourself, with your own company members or associates, or with performers found especially for the piece.
The judges are looking for exciting and innovative applications that have a playful approach to form.
Further details: the sharings will take place on 20, 27 October, 3, 10, 17, 24 November. The judges of this brief are looking for short pieces that give a rounded feel for your text. No technical equipment – just performers and voices!
IdeasTap will pay each participant £50 and cover travel expenses of those travelling from outside London on the day of the performance.
Scottee is a 28-year-old artist and broadcaster from Kentish Town, north London. He is a regular contributor for BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Huffington Post and i-D magazine. He is currently an associate artist at Olivier award-winning company Duckie and the iconic Roundhouse.
