Applications open for La Boite's 2012 Indie Season
Thursday, 07 July 2011 15:55

Applications are now open for La Boite's 2012 Indie Season, a curated season of up to four independent theatre productions, each of three weeks.

"This will be the third annual La Boite Indie season. It originated in 2010 because we felt Brisbane needed another platform for independently produced live performance - it's critical to the ongoing health of theatre everywhere," La Boite Program Manager Shari Irwin said.

La Boite Indie aims to nurture a more sustainable independent theatre culture in Brisbane, to cultivate new audiences, to enable closer ties between independent practice and La Boite, and to help create outstanding, contemporary works for the stage made with passion and rigour.

"Since we launched the program, we've continued to refine the support La Boite provides Indie producers, mostly obviously through the use of the reconfigured 100-seat Roundhouse Theatre, but also by contributing financially to the more expensive, yet essential elements of performance-making and promotion - such as the purchase of production materials and the roll-out of marketing campaigns," Irwin said.

"La Boite Indie is interested in all genres of live performance, and past seasons have seen a mix of Queensland premieres of both international and new Australian text-based work, contemporary and mixed-media performance, and live art. Our priority is to help bring to the stage a compelling show - whatever the genre."

Submissions for the La Boite's 2012 Indie Season close 5pm Wednesday 3 August 2011.
