You are Already Dead looking for plays for experimental new writing night

Collaborators and materials wanted for experimental new ‘writing’ night.

You Are Already Dead is a home for the unusual; an experiment in theatre and non-theatre artist collaboration and bold, unconventional interpretations of ‘text’.

The first YAAD will be a 90 minute night of new works between one and 20 minutes long performed to a public audience on 25th May.

They’re looking for:
writers to send in ‘texts’ (the definition of text is open; could be a play script, a letter, a photo, a gesture…) and
makers (performers, directors, sculptors, painters, cellists…) to collaborate and experiment boldly with the medium. Following an initial informal jam in late March (they’re thinking a 24-hour theatre project) you’ll then get your pick of starting materials and collaborators.

Key Dates:
7th March, 11:59pm: call-out closes.
7th March – 14th March: we scan through and assemble a team
March 14: invitations go out
End of March: THE CATALYST / Meet-up / Sharing
April – May: Preparations / Rehearsals
25th of May: You Are Already Dead

This will be artist-led, with the central guideline being to try something you’ve never done before in a safe and supportive environment.

Make work like you are already dead.

How to apply:
