Performers needed by Curve theatre - ENTRIES BY THIS FRIDAY 23RD JULY!

Paid work for artists for the first three weekends in August with a very tight deadline so get in quick and or pass on to other artists!

Please see below from Beth Shouler Curve Head of Creative Programmes.

We are building a summer stage outside Curve in Orton Square and are looking to programme some acts to play outside to the public on Friday early evenings and Saturdays throughout August.

We're looking for simple acts including dance, spoken-word and poetry, children's storytelling, musical theatre (could be a couple of singers and a pianist), live music, beat-boxing – or acts which can work outside while the public are having a drink or passing by, as well as those who might turn up especially. We expect technical requirements to be fairly basic and should have stage dimensions to share with you shortly.

The provisional idea is:

Day and Time

Target Audience

Ideas of what might be programmed (open to other ideas!)

Fridays – 5-7pm

For the post-work crowd.

Music / Musical Theatre / Singing / Choirs / Concert / Spoken-Word / Poetry.

Saturdays – 10am-12pm

For children and families.

Storytelling (could be interactive) / dance or dance workshop / puppetry / songs for children / beatboxing workshop.

Saturdays – 2-4pm

For everyone.

Dance (any style) / Musical Theatre / Choir / Music / Beat-boxing / Spoken-word.

Saturdays – 6-8pm

For a more grown up audience.

Musical Theatre / Choir / Live Music / Acoustic Set / band / Dance.

The premise is relaxed and informal with minimal technical requirements with companies having a brief soundcheck.

We're open to artists and companies at any stage of their career as well as community companies.

We could programme acts multiple times and are also open to work that was performed at the Welcome Back shows at Curve in May.

This is a paid opportunity (£50 - £100 per 30 mins/ £100 - £200 per hour depending on the size of the company).

The dates are:

  • Fri 6 August
  • Sat 7 August
  • Fri 13 August
  • Sat 14 August
  • Fri 20 August
  • Sat 21 August
  • Fri 27 August
  • Sat 28 August

If you're interested in taking part please could you send an expression of interest via the link here https://form.jotform.com/211955383437058

It's a very basic form which asks:

  • Contact Details
  • Which dates and times you could do
  • Whether you could offer 30 mins / 1 hour / 2 hours.
  • Brief description of what you'd like to offer (performance / interactive workshop, the style etc) – it's fine to be a bit rough and ready!
  • Any tech requirements (we can also have a further conversation about this later).

It's a very quick turnaround and we hope to provisionally pull a schedule together by Friday 23 July.

If you're able to respond by Thursday 22 July that would be wonderful.

We hope it'll be a great opportunity to celebrate Leicester and brilliant local artists!

(Do forward on to anyone)

All warmth
