TEAM's Opportunity with Polarbear!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!

So I am super excited to announce that there is an amazing opportunity coming up soon!

So this amazing opportunity is a chance for 8 spoken word artists/poets between the ages of 16-25 to take part in Talking Doorsteps. Talking doorsteps is a project set up by The Roundhouse Theatre, and thanks to both the Roundhouse and NTW TEAMit will be happening in Cardiff.

It’s a 3 day program where 8 lucky people will be given the chance to take part in some workshops with a Roundhouse Poet. These will be used to create and develop a piece of work. Participants will be filmed in a variety of locations around Cardiff performing their pieces, which will be put online by The Roundhouse on their website/YouTube Channel. Two people from this project will then be chosen to represent Wales in ‘Last Word’ Festival. . . All travel and accommodation will be covered for the duration of project.

Here are some videos from previous Talking Doorsteps projects:

This is an amazing opportunity and the additional massive whopper is the Roundhouse poet that will be delivering the workshops is……...POLARBEAR!!!! If you don’t know who he is, he is amazing.

This is the first thing I ever saw by him and it just blew me away!

So the big question, “How do I become one of the lucky 8?” Well NTW TEAM will be holding two Word4Word Nights, one in Wrexham on the 3rd of March and one in Cardiff on the 26th February. These are open mic nights where 10 people get a 5-minute slot to showcase their work and from these, the lucky 8 will be picked by members of NTW TEAM.

To apply to perform at this event or for more info email us at stating whether you would like to perform at the Cardiff or Wrexham event. If you do want to apply make sure you are available for the 24th-26th of April when the project will be taking place.
Applications are open to existing TEAM members and new ones, so if you aren't a member of TEAM yet then all you need to do is join the TEAM group online to become a member

Hi Hope,

You can send in your application but unfortunately people performing at the event will get priority. But it's still worth sending it in to the address Frank gave below :)

Hope this helps,

Hope :)

Hi Hope,

Thanks for getting in touch and asking, I've asked the guys about it and will get back to you as soon as I know, but if you want to make contact and ask yourself you can send a email to letting them know your situation they should get back to you :)

All the best,
Frank :)

Hi Frank, 

This opportunity sounds fantastic, but I wouldn't be able to make it to Wrexham or Cardiff on these days as I work and live in Ceredigion and wouldn't be able to get there on time. Is it possible to upload video/send recordings of your work to be considered for the Roundhouse event in April? Or to be considered in some other way. It would be great if you could let me know. 

Thanks! Hope :)
