Yard Theatre accepting submissions for new season

Posted on 06 January 2012 by Laura Turner

The Yard Theatre in Hackney Wick reopens for its second season of theatre, dance and opera on 6 April 2012, and the theatre is now accepting submissions of work from artists and companies.

Made with recycled and reclaimed material in a vacant warehouse, the theatre seats 130 and the programmers are most interested in work that plays with well-known stories or texts (plays, novels, poems, etc).

The 2012 season will run from 6 April to 1 December, featuring productions that each run for three to four weeks. Submissions are not limited to theatre, proposals are welcome for opera, musicals and dance. Whatever form submissions take, the focus must be on developing new work rather than pieces that have been seen elsewhere.

As well as short runs, there are also opportunities for one-nighters on Sundays and individual festivals in July and October.

For more information on how to submit work for consideration and what the Yard Theatre offers artists, see the theatre’s website here.

Opportunities are also available for creative and managerial volunteer and intern placements at the Yard.
