45North Commission Scheme-  3 seed commissions to South Asian artists

This scheme will be curated with and facilitated by Atri Banerjee 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 Atri Banerjee
  • 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 November – January, with the aim of creating what we call a 0.5 draft by the end of the scheme. For 45North, a 0.5 draft will vary from piece to piece, but they would like the draft to show the general shape of the show giving an idea of pace, form, style, character and dialogue (where needed!)


10am Monday 8th November – Applications Close
10/11th November – Interviews
22 November – 7th January – 6-week commission period
Delivery of 0.5 Drafts – Monday 10th January
