La Boite announce artist development programs for 2018

 

Three fantastic opportunities are on offer for Brisbane’s emerging to mid-career theatre makers; applications are now open for La Boite’s 2018 Artist Development Programs.

“At La Boite, artists are at the very heart of what we do – we are committed to creating opportunities and platforms to support local artists in the development and creation of new work” said Sanja Simic, Creative Producer at La Boite Theatre Company.

 

LA BOITE ASSISTANT CREATIVES PROGRAM

In 2017, La Boite launched the highly regarded Assistant Creatives Program, a paid opportunity that provides three individuals an opportunity to assist on a main stage La Boite production.

In 2018, the program is open to creatives interested in (where available) lighting, costume, set, and video design, as well as sound and composition, dramaturgy, directing, and production management. The program encourages mentorship with senior theatre practitioners, enabling opportunities for young creatives to learn about the process of developing shows for large scale companies - specifically for our unique Roundhouse Theatre.

Assistant Director of La Boite’s Blackrock through the 2017 Assistant Creatives Program, Matt Seery, said the program was a unique and truly invaluable opportunity.
“La Boite are listening and acting. Their Assistant Creatives Program has created a number of new positions within the company to welcome early career artists onto mainstage productions and guide their evolving creative practice. It’s exactly the kind of thing our community of young and new artists has been crying out for” said Seery.

Applications for the La Boite Assistant Creatives Program close 20 December 2017, 5PM.

La Boite’s annual HWY Festival encourages artists to stretch boundaries and take risks with new work. Over an action packed two-weeks, HWY attendees are invited to participate in readings, showings, workshops, masterclasses, conversations, and pitches.

This festival is designed to encourage local artists to flex their making muscles, the overarching aim of HWY is to support performance works that show considerable artistic potential, at various stages of development.

Picnic at Hanging Rock | Malthouse Theatre

The stage adaptation by Tom Wright has adroitly captured the complex nature of this story, one full of contrasts – a fun picnic turned tragedy, English rules and regulations as opposed to the lawlessness of Australian bush and the diminutive schools girls gazing up at a towering rock.

Still Living in the 70s | Melissa Langton and Mark Jones

What a pleasure it is to see Melissa Langton and Mark Jones back in Perth after a few year’s absence. These two are so prodigiously talented they make the show fly past.

F*cking Men | New Theatre

Don’t be put off by the brashness of Joe Dipietro’s title. This is a beautifully written piece with some wonderful insights into not only gay life but the nature of relationships more generally.

Bring It On | Black Box Performing Arts

Clever, fun, sometimes moving, and always bringing it, Bring It On is a hoot, and showcases of some of the best youth performances I’ve ever seen.

Dolly Diamond's 15-Year Anniversary Gala

Dolly and a group of her very talented friends joined forces and hands on Saturday and delivered an incredibly enjoyable evening of razor sharp asides, astute observations and a thunderstorm of glitteringly camp costumes.
