Deadline: Sunday 4 October 2015.
Big Imaginations are looking to commission an artist or theatre company to create a brilliant piece of theatre to engage families with children aged 0-4 years.
The aim of this commission is to develop the new audiences we reached during our previous outreach commission in 2015 and bring them into our venues and spaces for a piece of theatre to excite and engage. The piece needs to be able to be performed across the range of spaces the Big Imaginations network supports, from grand auditoriums to rural village halls and everything in between.
We want to be bold and experimental in our commission choices. We want to commission work that celebrates diversity and can build diverse audiences by allowing them to see themselves reflected on the stage; work that pushes boundaries in terms of form in order to ensure that our programming does not become safe and uninspiring. We will focus our commissioning energies on the North, developing the quality of available work on our doorstep.
