45 North are offering 3 seed commissions to trans and gender non-conforming artists looking to develop an idea for live theatre. They include all forms of gender diversion under this banner including Non-binary people, and especially encourage QTPOC artists to apply. They are keen to hear from theatre-makers, writers, devisors, directors and designers. This does not have to be a text-based seed commission!
The artists commissioned will be asked to work on their idea part-time across 6-weeks through March and April, with the aim of creating what they call a 0.5 draft by the end of the scheme.
This scheme will be curated with and facilitated by Tabby Lamb and the 3 artists will receive
- £1000 fee
- Up to 1 week of rehearsal or office space
- Up to £750 for collaborator fees
- 15 hours of mentorship and one-to-one support by Tabby Lamb
