Given the uncertainty surrounding the re-opening of theatre spaces for live performance, La Boite’s Creative Producer Sanja Simić said research and development opportunities were critical.
“We are excited about the breadth of these opportunities and hope to hear from artists who are inspired to write or make work for La Boite’s iconic Roundhouse Theatre, as well as spaces in La Boite’s precinct, including the La Boite Studio, Foyer and Public Forecourt.”
Applications will be open from now until Monday, 13 July 2020, with the application requirements and process differing per opportunity.
Successful applicants will receive a fee for their work, as well as comprehensive artistic, producing, administrative and production support during the development period. La Boite is offering $15,000 for the 12-month playwright commission, $5,000 for the 6-month interstate collaboration and $2,500 per 3-month development opportunity for artists or companies.
