A free two-day residential training and development lab produced by Applause and 101 Creation Space.
17th June 2021
Applause and 101 Creation space are offering a two-day residential training and development lab to upskill and prepare dance and contemporary circus artists for creating and touring outdoor work within rural locations and urban communities.
This practical event delves into the nuts and bolts of outdoor rural touring, offering detail and insight about where to look for commissioning and touring opportunities, examples of tried and tested techniques and approaches to making work for these settings and what to consider when building partnerships with promoters and rural communities.
The two and a half day Lab will involve a varied programme of workshops, seminars and creative tasks in order to expand your development and thinking in different contexts. The sessions will feature contributions from sector organisations including Applause Rural Touring, The National Rural Touring Forum, Live & Local & Creative Arts East, as well as practical performance workshops from theatre, dance and circus companies successfully making work for these contexts.
The Lab includes a welcome dinner and opportunities for 1 to 1 mentoring sessions throughout the event to explore your own artistic practice and its suitability. As a delegate on the Lab, you will stay onsite at 101’s residential artist village in one of our individual en-suite cabins so that you can continue to network and idea share with peers outside the structured sessions – plus there will be optional activities to get involved with in your free time! We will also be providing full catering so that you can focus on the experience and truly immerse yourself into your practice whilst you are with us.
To gain maximum benefit from this free residential course this opportunity is for artists who have an existing show that they are looking to reshape or have an idea for a new commission that they are looking to develop for this sector.
To apply: please send a covering letter or video outlining your interest in rural touring, a summary of your current practice and a brief outline of the show that you’re looking to develop to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 5 July 2021.
The Rural Touring Lab is produced with support from Arts Council England and SELEP Ltd as a part of Catalyst For Culture and Marlowe, Canterbury.
