ARTIST COMMISSION (deadline August 14th)
The first round of our Back to the Future commission saw the rather brilliant Ellie Ward and Sophie Shepherd bring us Self-Welp, two self-appointed life-coaches, Minnie Fredge and Cecilia Mescal offering the newest self-help techniques. Check them out here
Back to the Future Part II finished on July 24th and we will be announcing the commissioned artists VERY SOON!
Back to the Future Part III is still running and we're working in collaboration with People Dem Collective and Margate NOW to commission Kent based artists to create LIVE performances inspired by the theme Back To The Future. Theatre has been halted. What if it never comes back? What if it comes back differently? With social distancing still in play we'd like you toe xplore the alternative vision for what live performance could look like over the next few months and years> headphone shows in empty car parks? Bespoke delivery services like our very own UPS? Queue theatre? Something as yet unimagined? If you think you have an answer and are keen to create it , we want to hear from you.
With big thanks to Arts Council England through the National Lottery.
Commission award £750.
Deadlines: August 14th 2020
