Call for submissions: Audre Lorde-inspired performances

The Marlborough Theatre and Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts are delighted to announce two new commissions for BAME LGBTQ+ artists to create a new 15-minute performance inspired by Audre Lorde!

Following on from 2017’s successful Thinking Queer: Bloomsbury Group, TMT and ACCA are excited to present another night of reflection, resistance, poetics and power, this time to celebrate the work of trailblazing writer, thinker and activist Audre Lorde.

TMT and ACCA are looking for two artists to present work as part of this event at ACCA on Wednesday 7 November 2018. Each selected artist or group of artists will receive a fee of £750 to create and present their performance. The organisers welcome applications for performances with a strong throughline relating to Audre Lorde, her work or politic.

This opportunity is specifically for BAME LGBTQ+ artists working in theatre, digital art, spoken word, live art and/or interdisciplinary performance.

This opportunity is open to artists of all diverse backgrounds, including foreign nationals. If you would prefer to apply in a different format or would like TMT/ACCA to make reasonable adjustments to submit your application, please contact Abby (see below). Collectives are welcome to apply, however the commission amount will be £750 for the entire group, not per person.

How to apply

Send an e-mail with a 200-word (max) OR a 3-min video description of your idea. Please include a portfolio OR CV to go with your application; Send your e-mail to abby@marlboroughtheatre.org.uk
Deadline for applications: 14th September 2018. All applicants will be contacted with final decisions.

If you have any enquiries, please e-mail us on abby@marlboroughtheatre.org.uk.

This opportunity is part of Marlborough Theatre’s Queer Heroes season of performance. Supported by Arts Council England.
