Call for Theatre Proposals - Hidden Door Festival

Filter News

Deadline: 13 November 2017

Hidden Door is an arts organisation which aims to open up urban spaces as a platform for new and emerging artists, musicians, theatre makers, film makers and poets. Through organising temporary events Hidden Door works to showcase new work and create engaging environments for the public to experience, explore and discover.

They are now looking for new writing and innovative stage-based and non-stage-based productions for their Theatre Programme, to feature in the 2018 edition of the Hidden Door festival running next May and June. Proposals are welcome from a wide range of people, from students to more established practitioners, based anywhere in the UK.

Proposals are invited until Monday 13 November and will then be considered by an expert panel comprising of members of the Hidden Door team alongside external invited experts.

Hidden Door will pay basic project costs covering equipment hire and materials requirements. Theatre spaces will have a basic lighting rig, staging, PA system and an in-house technician. Equipment will be sourced on the company's behalf and provide costs up to £500 if required. See the website for more information.

Hidden Door believes in fair pay for artists and their ambition is to pay all artists, performers and contributors. As a non-profit, volunteer-run arts organisation, this is always dependent on securing the necessary funding.  They hope to know about this funding by February 2018 and will keep all contributors informed.
