Talawa Theatre launches Studio Firsts for black theatre-makers

Studio Firsts is an initiative that invites three Black theatre-makers to create a new piece of work in their Studio.

Talawa Theatre Company will work with 3 emerging artists or companies; giving exclusive use of their Studio for one week of research and development in May 2016.

Whether you are a director, deviser, sound engineer or multi-disciplinary artist, if you have a new idea to test or explore, Talawa wants to hear from you. Studio Firsts creates a space in which emerging artists (18+) can experiment and take risks: we are not looking for applications from playwrights or directors reviving a classic text. This is not about offering a free rehearsal space, but about Talawa investing in you as a theatre-maker and supporting you in developing something new.

How to apply: To apply, you will need to complete a short application form and monitoring form and submit it to studiofirsts@talawa.com . Please find further details on the website.

Deadline: Friday 1 April 2016
