Applications to the RADA Festival 2018 are open for alumni
The RADA Festival is an annual event taking place over the summer bringing together an eclectic range of artists, writers, directors and practitioners to celebrate the possibilities of theatre today.
Now in its seventh year, the RADA Festival has gone from strength to strength and has become a central fixture in RADA's public calendar.
The RADA Festival continually challenges, inspires and provokes urgent social and political questions through its eclectic, innovative and unexpected programme. The Festival has become a much desired springboard for emerging talent showcasing creative collaborations. We believe theatre should be accessible and relevant for all, and we were delighted to introduce our first captioned and BSL-signed performance in 2017.
The RADA Festival provides a platform for new writing to reach diverse audiences. Work presented at previous festivals has subsequently been performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Brighton Fringe Festival, Prague Fringe, Trafalgar Studios, Park Theatre and many more. If you have something already touring or established, if you’ve grown or developed an original idea or simply have the beginnings of a concept that you would like to explore – please submit an application.
New to 2018
This year we are looking for submissions from RADA’s Technical Theatre Arts alumni, to create pop-up installations within the public areas of the Gower Street building. Applications will be accepted from alumni working in any medium, for example paintings, sculptures, moving images, photography, drawings, sound or lighting design, costume, or immersive installations.
Applicants should provide as much detail as possible in their submission form; the selection process will include an interview with further discussion around the scope and logistics of any technical project.
The work must have been created within the last 5 years. As part of the application process, we will discuss what support you may need to help realise your project.
The RADA Festival is an opportunity for the world to see a different side of RADA - whether as a regular theatregoer or as a member of the public visiting us for the first time to discover something new.
The deadline for ALL applications is Monday 8 January 2018
Applications after this date may not be accepted
