ARCHIVED: PROJECT END DATE: 25 JUL 2021
Are you aged 18-25? Do you love musicals?
This summer, we are creating a new ensemble of performers, designers and technicians to collaborate with Harry Blake and Jennifer Fletcher on the early development of a brand new piece of musical theatre.
The residency will take place from 12 – 25 July 2021. It’s free to take part and accommodation and all meals are provided.
About the Project
Harry and Jen say: “We’ve spent the past year developing an idea for a musical comedy and we can’t wait to explore the material for the very first time with ArtsLab this summer. We’ll be focusing on the role of music and dance, exploring some prepared material and creating new work to share in a public performance.
The residency will involve a mixture of training exercises, testing new work and creating new material, culminating in an evening of performance at The North Wall. We are looking for creative performers with an interest in music and dance in any form. You don’t have to be a triple threat to apply!”
About Harry and Jen
Harry and Jen are theatre-makers with specialisms in music and movement. They work together to make innovative and contemporary musical theatre that blurs the boundaries between genres and has something to say about the world we live in.
They have collaborated as creatives on a wide range of productions including The Sandman (Southwark Playhouse), THOR & LOKI (HighTide) and The Beggar’s Opera (Storyhouse). Other credits include Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (West End and national tour), As Long as the Heart Beats (National Theatre Wales) and Wild East (Young Vic).
