Here you'll find opportunities passed on to us by our friends and partner organisations:


Live Lab Bursary - Live Theatre, Newcastle

Submissions are now open for Live Theatre's annual Live Lab Bursary for innovative approaches to text based theatre.

The bursary winner will receive £2000, dramaturgical and producing support, research and development and rehearsal space as well as a performance slot at the Elevator Festival in February 2018.

Previous bursary winners include Sex with Robots and Other Devices by Cloakroom Theatre, Lists for the End of the World by fanSHEN, The Soaking of Vera Shrimp by Alison Carr and Captain Amazing by Alistair McDowall.

Winning the Live Lab Bursary helped us make a show we’re now very proud of but also more importantly, as newcomers to the region, gave us a home. Presenting our work to audiences, next to other exciting companies, really helped us develop what we were trying to do - that’s what every artist needs!” Rachel Briscoe – fanSHEN
