National Theatre Scotland are inviting expressions of interest from South Asian Artists for ideas for new theatrical productions for Scotland’s largest theatre stages (i.e. King’s Theatre Glasgow, His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen etc), that will speak directly to Scotland’s diverse South Asian communities and appeal to multi-cultural Scottish theatre audiences. Selected ideas will be developed with a view to being produced in the next 3-5 years.
Any artist, company or collective in Scotland can pitch an idea for commission/development/production support for any scale, at any time, through their new ideas portal
They are looking for a brief description of an idea. Ideas can be text, music or dance led, be comedies, musicals, political etc, but they must talk to Scotland’s South Asian communities. Artists will retain all rights to their idea/s and can submit multiple expressions of interest for different ideas.
All submissions will be read by a panel made up of four members of the company’s artistic team including Artistic Director Jackie Wylie, Director of Artistic Development Caroline Newall and Director of Creative Engagement Paul Fitzpatrick, and three paid external advisors; Iqbal Bedi, Lisa Kapur and Harris Albar. All expressions of interest will be acknowledged with feedback from the panel.
