Call Out for 2018 Residency - Q LAB at The Joan Sutherland
Q LAB is Q Theatre’s annual artist residency program hosted by the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre. The residency is designed to make creative space and time for the development of dynamic projects at an early stage of their conception.
Projects are selected through an open call out process and successful applicants will receive financial assistance, work-space in the Allan Mullins Studio as well as technical and dramaturgical support for dedicated creative development.
Q LAB is based on a commitment to supporting the development of independent artists and projects in the local Western Sydney area and the vibrancy that occurs as a result.
Building on the successes of previous residency programs, Q Theatre invites artists or groups of artists with a passion for a creative Penrith to apply for a Q LAB ’18 Residency.
“Q Theatre wants to help you dream up something big.”- Nick Atkins, Creative Producer
The 2017 Q Lab recipients were emerging playwright Joel Burrows, cross-disciplinary performers Carolyn Eccles and Sean O’Keeffe, theatre-makers Emily Ayoub and Clockfire Theatre Company, and performance makers Rachel Roberts and Nathan Harrison.
Growing out of the legacy of the Q Theatre Company and over 50 years of stellar ground breaking theatre-making, Q Theatre helps to make The Joan a perfect place to imagine, create, build, design and experiment, test ideas or explore new collaborations and contexts.
Q Theatre has a long and proud history of embracing new work, bringing together emerging and established local talent with artists from all across Australia to make theatre for and from the people of Penrith. With a focus on contemporary theatre projects, Q Theatre is home to directors, playwrights, actors, musicians, digital artists and the many creatives who find themselves somewhere in between. Based at The Joan, there is a place for dedicated creative development for theatre makers big and small.
Advocating for new voices, alternate points of view, an investigation of distinctive new forms, and consistently challenging and reinvigorating art form practice, Q Theatre helps to reimagine what theatre can be, and who it is for!
We can’t think of a better way to help you develop your creative way of experiencing the world and the story you have ready to be told.
