From January 2018, the Actors Centre is going to be opening the doors of the John Thaw Studio to the development and showcasing of new work. They will be offering regular opportunities throughout the year for actors who are forging their own career paths to present innovative, genre-pushing and risk-taking work to the public and industry. This will also be an opportunity for audiences to actively engage with the development process, with every company offering the chance to participate in discussions about the work, to give feedback or actively workshop the pieces themselves.
This is a new initiative supporting the Actors Centre members; with the space coming at no cost. It is the first initiative of new Creative Producer, Joel Fisher, in the build-up to the centre’s 40th anniversary.
Creative Producer, Joel Fisher said, “In an environment where actors are having to work harder than ever to take control of their own careers and create their own productions, it is all the more important that there is a regular and financially accessible opportunity to showcase this new work. We want this to be a safe space where risk is encouraged and bold new work can be developed.”
The Actors Centre is committed in its support for young and newly established actors and creatives as they carve a way for themselves in those daunting early years of an artistic career.
Submissions are now open. For more information on how to apply you can visit The Actors Centre website:
