OPEN CALL OUT: ASSEMBLY ROXY Winter 2018 / Spring 2019 Season
Assembly Roxy presents new work from Scottish and Scotland-based artists
As part of our commitment to creating space in the city of Edinburgh for new work by emerging Scottish and Scotland-based artists and companies, Assembly Roxy are opening up a proportion of the slots in our new season for open submissions. We are seeking proposals for live performances from theatre, dance, comedy, spoken word, performance art and inter-disciplinary artists based in Scotland who are looking for spaces to make bold new work which explores and tests the boundaries of live performance.
Since opening our doors as a year-round venue, we have been programming a range of exciting work through an invitational programming model. It is our ambition to create a vibrant hub where artists can meet, collaborate and most importantly, make work for audiences. As such, we have taken the decision to pilot an Open Submissions Programming model which will work alongside our Invitational Programming model. This new model aims to complement our existing programme in ways which will excite, surprise and provoke both us and our audiences, exposing us to a fuller range of artists at all stages of their careers.
We aim to create long-term relationships with the artists and companies we encounter through all our programming strands, and the Open Submissions model aims to open that up to an even broader range of dynamic voices.
The deadline for proposals is Sunday 2 September 2018, 11:59pm.
