Look at this opportunity to get into the Theatre Sandbox!


Theatre Sandbox : making
space for great ideas

Theatre Sandbox, a new opportunity for theatre artists, companies and collectives, is offering six
£10,000 commissions to support the research and development of experimental
pieces of performance which engage with Pervasive Media Technologies.



What are we looking for?


Theatre Sandbox is for people who have already dabbled with digital technology and
those who are completely new to it – it is a great opportunity to experiment,
explore and take risks within a supported space. We are looking for great
creative ideas and people who get excited about treading new ground and sharing
their learning with others.



What is Pervasive Media?


Pervasive Media is any experience that uses sensors and mobile/wireless networks to
deliver content (film, audio, music, images, a game…) that is sensitive to your
situation – which could be where you are, how you feel, or who you are with.



What does the scheme offer?


Setting out to grow an active community experimentation and learning, the scheme
includes a structured programme of commissioning, mentoring, work in progress
performances, knowledge exchange and PR/promotion.



Technology is an enabler: it's only as exciting
as the story it is telling or the experience it is helping to create. Being
part of the scheme you will also get access to technology experts, leading
theatre professionals and the chance to work with one of our venue partners:
Bristol Old Vic; mac, Birmingham; Contact, Manchester; The Junction, Cambridge;
Soho Theatre, London; and Lyric, Hammersmith.



Applications will be accepted until 30 April and the scheme will run from July – September
2010:
