SHOW 2015 – Now accepting production applications

SHOW 2015 – Now accepting applications

Having established SHOW at TDC as a yearly event that showcases new theatre work, The Theatre Development Centre is pleased to announce details of SHOW 2015.

This year we have decided to do things a little differently. Instead of a number of productions in rep throughout the week of the festival, we are offering a performance opportunity for ONE suitable production.

A panel will choose one company / individual from the submitted applications. The chosen company / individual will have:
3 weeks exclusive use of the TDC directly before SHOW to rehearse, tech and build your production
1 week run from Nov 23rd to 29th
Technical support for rehearsal weeks and for the duration of SHOW
Production support
Box Office facilities
FOH support
Administration and marketing support

We are now accepting applications from those interested in delivering a Finished Work at SHOW 2015.
Please email info@theatredevelopmentcentre.com for an application form.
Closing date for receipt of completed application forms is Tuesday 2nd June @10am.

Please note the Work-In-Progress component of SHOW will take place on the 28th and 29th of November this year and will follow a similar format to last year’s event. Work-In-Progress application forms will be available at a later date.

Friday Sharing – 17th April 2015

Join us this Friday for a development sharing of

Lulu’s World

Lulu Rose
By Francesca Castellano
—————————————-

Meet Lulu, a street artist that can’t be contained in any gallery.
Enter her crazy world of make believe, where magic happens right in front of you!
Dressed in yesterday’s news, this lady will sweep you off your feet and drag you into her imagination. Against a background of madness, scenes unfold, pouring from her pen onto paper, turning the 2D world of sketching into a 3D experience for the child in all of us.

Who needs words when you’ve got a blank canvas, and a marker to fill it?!
_______________________________

Francesca Castellano has been working in street theatre and circus for over 10 years. Lulu’s World is a combination of her love of clowning, art and physical theatre.

“This week in the TDC is a great chance to experiment with new props and discover new techniques for my clown to enjoy, fail and succeed in making a proper fool of myself. The chance to do it in front of the TDC’s supportive audience is just one more reason to work hard at it, fail bigger and have more fun, because it is shared. I am hoping that the Q&A session will inform this new direction so that my show will be fool-proofed for the touring season ahead!” – Francesca Castellano

The sharing should appeal to all ages and will last approximately 30 minutes.
