Accidental introduce FLIGHT/RISK, a new project supporting fellow artists to explore and develop new theatre together four storeys above Belfast city centre.

Flight/risk

JULY - OCTOBER 2016

FLIGHT/RISK is a new project from Accidental, combining ideas we've been conjuring to support theatre-makers and other artists in Belfast and Northern Ireland. For four months we'll be opening up our office and rehearsal spaces and turning it into a hub for FLIGHT/RISK artists to use for FREE while they develop a new piece of theatre. Beyond the space we're offering a whole support structure and a network of fellow artists sharing workspace and ideas at the hub.

FLIGHT/RISK is for anyone with a bold new piece of theatre you're dying to get to grips with. Accidental want to help launch theatre that welcomes risk and seeks to tell new stories in visionary forms. We want to link with plenty of ambitious artists & create a veritable blizzard of new theatre — & we're open to suggestions on how we can help you do it. Some of our current ideas on what FLIGHT/RISK can offer are listed below. 

Anyone can apply through our simple form below, whether you're an individual artist, a group or collective, a company or even a genuflecting mouse-puppet! We want you all to be a part of FLIGHT/RISK. The main thing is that you have at least one new piece of theatre you're excited to develop with the help of the programme.

PLAYWRITING @ Down Arts Centre

Six Saturdays, starting 7th May

Also as part of PLAYGROUND, join Emily at Down Arts Centre for six two-hour workshops in playwriting: Explore the craft of writing for the stage, with a focus on visual and physical storytelling skills & plenty of in-class experiments. Writers will experiment with form, springboard new work and have a chance to revisit their own scripts in progress. First-time and early-career scriptwriters aged 16+ are welcome. 

The Playwriting course, through DAC’s adult workshop programme, is £50/45 and runs for six Saturdays starting 7th May. Sign up via Down Arts Centre’s website.

We’re looking forward to digging into plays with a crop of fresh faces! Spread the word & see you there.
