Artist Commission: Watch This Space

Soothing music, enchanting dance, engaging theatre… we’re commissioning two performances for family audiences that give space to escape, space to relax, space to imagine…

The finished pieces must be high quality films of at least 5 minutes in length shared with families via Attenborough Arts Centre’s website and social media channels.

We are making this brief as open as possible, so feel free to think as creatively as you wish. Any form of performance is acceptable, as long as it can be captured on film.

The work must be aimed at family audiences, with an inclusive approach and all activity to create, perform and record the work must adhere to the relevant regulations around social distancing applicable at the time of producing the work. The recording, editing and final production of the final film will be the responsibility of the company/individual commissioned.
