PROJECT ON A BUS
Actor and Artist
We are inviting applications from actors and makers to take part in our second Mentorship Programme.
We are delighted to now accept applications to become part of the
Project on a Bus community; a place to create connections and a space to develop artistic practice.
For this scheme, you can get involved in two ways:
Monday Evening Ensemble: You are invited to audition for an R&D with professional director Juliet Knight. Looking for up to 10 Actors you will work with a writer and movement director to create an original authentic story around transformation. This will be part of the 2023 My Healing Process Festival and a scratch performance will be showcased in May during the We’re Not Quite There Yet Festival.
Saturday Performance Makers: We are seeking up to 20 artists to join our innovative scheme to develop new work. You will be mentored, have access to various professional development focused studio and online workshops, alongside space at The University of East London to develop your own piece, to be showcased in May during the We’re Not Quite There Yet Festival. Last year our workshops facilitators included Sita Thomas (Verbatim Theatre) Pappy Show (Physical Theatre) Squint (Writing Workshops) Hannes Langolf (movement with metaphor).
