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 HWY 2018

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.
