Global Indigenous Voices - calling for playwrights

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Global Voices is an UK based theatre project working with international playwrights to share new rehearsed readings. We are joining forces with Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival to present Global Indigenous Voices.

Curated by Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet, the evening will feature excerpts from five plays by Indigenous writers from around the world, and a post-performance discussion about the plays and the themes unearthed.  

We welcome submissions from all Indigenous writers.

The performances of rehearsed excerpts will be taking place on Thursday 13th June 2019 at the British Library in London. 

We are looking for plays from contexts beyond the UK; exploring issues and settings that audiences might not otherwise see in London theatres. 

Plays can be any length, and with any number of characters; and must be in, or translated into, English.

If you are submitting a play that has been translated and if the play or translation is still under copyright, you must ensure that both the playwright and the translator (or the relevant rights-holders) give their authorisation for the translation to be submitted and to participate. This is a paid opportunity.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 5pm GMT, 1st May 2019

This is a paid opportunity. The event is funded by Arts Council England.

Deadline: 
05/01/2019
