An audience is a vital part of the art we create.

Performance Lab hosts events throughout the year where artists are welcomed to try out their original material in front of an audience.

We also pair artists together to collaborate on the creation of new material.

Category 2: Collaborative
 
This Performance Lab is geared towards bringing artists together, to create an original piece of work. Artists submit original concepts for a piece. Based on submission concepts, we then match artists together to collaborate on creating an original piece, to be completed by the time of the showcase.

  • A visual submission sample of your previous work is required.

  • Your concept will be reviewed by a panel of theatre professionals, and you will be paired with another artist, to collaborate on creating an original piece.

  • The pieces will be matched based on concepts that work well together.
