2018 THE SPACE – EXPRESSION OF INTEREST INFORMATION

Opportunities for Producers
Have you thought about creating your own theatre work? Our black box theatre The Space is the perfect place to stretch your theatrical wings.

We are seeking expressions of interest for our 2018 Season. We encourage emerging and established Producers from the Gold Coast and surrounding regions including Brisbane to apply.

If you have a completed work we can support you to bring it to the stage with professional marketing, ticketing and technical support package.

If you’ve got an idea that needs creative development you can apply for our “Works In Progress” program. We’ll give you time, space and professional support to bring your creative vision closer to performance standard.

2018 SEASON SHOWS IN THE SPACE

What kind of productions are we looking for?
Our audience is intelligent and interested in works that engage and provoke thought. We love to see contemporary, edgy theatre works in our Season, but are open to all genres and interesting ideas. Previous productions have included comedic and dramatic plays – some written by well-known international playwrights, and others by local playwrights who’ve received professional mentoring.

Past productions have included Viral (2016), Allen (2016), The Forwards (2015), Mercy Thieves (2014), Hotel Beche de Mer (2014), Ruby Moon (2014), The Pillowman (2014), Escape to the Breakup Forest (2013), Mr Kolpert (2013), The Grand (2013) and Un Natural Selection (2013).

Venue Information
The Space is our black-box theatre, located upstairs beside our Administration offices. It’s an intimate space that seats 105 people, and has 2 dressing rooms, kitchen and bar. If your production is chosen for our 2018 Season, you’ll get access to The Space for bump-in, final rehearsals and performances.

What kind of experience do you need?
Whether you’re an emerging or established Producer, we’d like to hear from you. Some of our previous applicants have been experienced at presenting works around the country, while for others, our Season was their first step into presenting work in a professional capacity.

What marketing, ticketing and other support do we offer?
You’ll receive professional technical support, graphic design, a marketing package including advertising and programs, ticketing through our Box Office, also front of house staff for performances.

Funding Package
We provide a pre-production grant as well as the services mentioned above. Net Box Office profit from ticket sales is split 80/20 in the Producer’s favour. We encourage you to seek additional funding to renumerate your artists.

How do you apply for the 2018 Season in The Space?
In the first instance, submit an expression of interest by 30 June 2017. Email vbuenen@theartscentregc.com to discuss any questions you have.

What are Works-in-Progress?
If you’re not ready to stage a production yet, we can provide a grant to help develop an artistic work to bring it closer to performance standard. This assistance consists of a grant of up to $1000.00 for professional development of the product and access to our black box theatre The Space for development sessions and rehearsals. The Works in Progress program is not geared toward a performance outcome. Funds should be used by recipients to engage experienced professionals to challenge and offer new insight into the existing work, such as hiring a professional playwright, dramaturg or directing mentor.

If you’d like to apply for a Works-in-Progress grant, please send your expression of interest and proposal along with an outline of your project including project including mentor information to Vicki Buenen.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST ARE NOW OPEN
Enquiries: Please submit expressions of interest to Producer Vicki Buenen buenen@theartscentregc.com.au Submissions are due by Friday 30 June, 2017.
