2021 Development Season applications are now open!
The Blue Room Theatre is constitutionally mandated to facilitate the development of self-initiated work by West Australian theatre artists. We do not individually produce the work presented at our venue, but rather we support artists in the production of their own work, and produce the overall programs that these presentations sit within.
We aim to be as fair and unbiased as possible in the programming of our seasons. To achieve this, we involve and delegate the decision making process to rotating panel of assessors. Development Seasons are programmed by a panel of peer assessors which changes every round.
The Blue Room Theatre is an inclusive venue committed to the sharing of stories and the breaking of boundaries for artists and audiences alike. We strongly encourage applications to all our programs from and engaging artists who identify as Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, and artists with a disability.
The schedule for application rounds and programming is outlined in upcoming dates is below. We go live to our members and artists with each upcoming program’s offer and information pack 4-6 weeks from the application due date, and we turn around a decision as quickly as we can so you’re not left hanging.
Applications for the 2021 Development Season are now open and close at 4pm, 24 March 2021.
Our annual April – December Development Season is the cornerstone of The Blue Room Theatre’s artistic program. Each year, it sees around 14 independent new works offered unparalleled support from conception to presentation in our two black box theatre spaces for a series of three week seasons diverse in form, content, genre, artists and practice.
