Do you have an idea for a show for young audiences?
Would you like to explore that idea?
Do you want to work with new art forms?
Branar’s Tiny Shows/Seóanna Bídeach initiative offers artists & theatre makers time and space to explore & develop new skills, new roles and new work in a developmental context.
This weekend long residency will facilitate the early stage development of ideas for new shows for young audiences.
The structure of the initiative sees 3 artists, of different disciplines (e.g. dancer, musician, set designer) come together on a Friday morning. One of these artists will coordinate and lead the artistic activity over the weekend.The artists will be encouraged to play and experiment in a supported environment. On the Sunday evening, they will present and share their work with an invited audience of peers.
Each Tiny Show/Seóanna Bídeach concept selected will be allocated €500 towards their weekend residency. Previous recipients of the Tiny Shows residency have secured further support from local and national funding bodies as well as presenting venues/festivals.
The residency provides artists with the opportunity to:
– try out new and early stage seed ideas for young audiences
– explore working in a collaborative environment with fellow practitioners
– explore areas of practice, including live music, dance, puppetry, clown, mask, text and new media
– experiment both with form and their own artistic practice in a supportive environment
