‘Tiny Shows’ seeking LGBTQ+ theatremakers

If you’re an LGBTQ+ Theatre Maker, The Larder is coming to Omnibus Theatre to connect you and your work with the venue, and with your peers through ‘Tiny Shows’ on 3 & 4 February 2018.

96 Festival is Omnibus’ annual celebration of LGBTQ+ work. This year, the opening weekend of the festival will see sixty LGBTQ+ theatre makers spontaneously creating tiny pieces of theatre, and performing them in spaces around the building.

Email tinyshows@gmail.com if you’d like them to send you all of the information in large print.

How it works: Full details are available on their website.

Using a self-organising method called Open Space Technology, you will collaborate to write, devise, improvise, direct, stage and perform tiny but perfectly formed works in response to a theme you won’t receive until the day itself.

The spontaneity of the process makes this a great opportunity to take risks and experiment: try a new technique, new process, or even a craft you’ve never tried before. Throw some spontaneous ideas at the stage and see what happens.

The Larder @ Omnibus Theatre is a safe space through which to make new connections with your work and yourself as an artist. It’s also a chance for Artistic Director Marie McCarthy and the Omnibus Theatre community to connect with you and your work, not just for their annual LGBTQ+ Festival but for all of their programming.

Eligibility/How to apply: 

To be a Tiny LGBTQ+ Shows Maker, you must:

  • self-identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community
  • be a theatre maker of any kind (writer, performer, director, designer, choreographer, dramaturg, composer, stage manager etc)
  • be willing to make collaborative work quickly
  • be available to join them at Omnibus Theatre from 10am to 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday Feb 3rd and 4th 2018

Please email them something brief about you and your work, with web links if you’d like, and reassure them that this feels like a fair exchange to you even if there is no funding in place.

You can send this in the body of an email to Jenifer Toksvig via tinyshows@gmail.com

Deadline: First come, first served
