Artist Opportunities

Midsumma 2016


Over the last 4 years Theatre Works has helped staged 16 works during Midsumma from local, national and international artists.

We pride ourselves on presenting entertaining, provocative and original contemporary queer performances – providing a platform for both emerging and established artists. 

There are a number of different ways that we may way work with you to present your work ranging from a shared risk scenario to venue hire.  In determining the “deal” and the level of support we can offer we consider our programming needs as well as the needs of the artists/producers. We are currently seeking proposals for projects for Midsumma 2016. Please check out our Venue information here  and email Theatre Works’ Creative Producer Daniel Clarke on cp(replace+with+at+symbol) before August 17 2016 with your project.

Directors Lab: Melbourne

October 10 - October 18 2015

Inspire. Challenge. Connect. Nurture.

The inaugural Australian Directors Lab will take place during the Melbourne Festival in 2015. Inspired by the Lincoln Center’s Directors Lab, Theatre Works will facilitate a unique program of events for professional directors from around Australia and the world here in Melbourne.

This intensive laboratory will provide opportunities for directors to participate in masterclasses, dynamic conversations, investigations and creative explorations. It will enable directors to share their skills, methodologies, creative learnings and
techniques with a community of peers.

More information about the Directors Lab, including the application process, will be announced in May 2015.

To register your interest please email directorslab(replace+with+at+symbol)
