Ideas. Experiments. New works. Live art. Performance. Inspiration. Innovation. Rebellion.
We are seeking applications from artists looking to present to an audience who are game to try something new. A Night of… provides a live presentation platform to support the sharing and testing of ideas, concepts, performances and inspirations for artists from all disciplines. Whether you create theatre, poetry, design, music, performance lectures, live art, comedy, puppetry or beyond, we want to hear from you.
Each evening will have a different theme, with artists programmed according to the form, content, and ideas behind and/or inspiring their presentation. Full of experimentation, playfulness, and
innovation, A Night of… provides a fascinating evening of engagement and entertainment for audiences.
A Night of… Sound. Danger. Hypotheticals. Trouble. Freedom. Light. Silence. Mediation. Darkness. Diversity. What night will you be a part of?
Don’t fret if your idea doesn’t fit into one of the above, we will decide on categories once artists and works have been selected.
Applications from all disciplines of art are welcomed, with the only requirement being that each artist will have 2 – 20 minutes of stage time to present/perform for the audience. The curation process may see some presentations/performances suited to multiple nights, and these artists will have the opportunity to be featured more than once if so desired.
Works selected will receive between one and three nights of performance as part of the season which runs 13 – 17 February 2018.

“You can take the kinds of risks you could never dream of in a professional season. Ten minutes is plenty of time to tell a story if you know what you want to say, but the task is small enough for you to break every rule of your practice so far and put it all back together again in some new and unexpected arrangement.” Bridget Le May – Development Program Artist 2017
