Apply now: multi-artform creative lab for experienced and early-career artists - Auckland, May/June 2018


ROUGH MIX is a paid multi-artform creative lab for early-stage ideas and practice development: a two-week practical opportunity for artists to try out new ideas or new ways of working. It brings together a small core group of experienced artists from different disciplines and gives them time to start developing new projects in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. The artists work with a group of performers and two early-career artists over a two week period before making a work-in-progress showing at the end. Previous participants have included playwrights, composers, choreographers, visua artists and film-makers.

In 2018, Rough Mix will take place outside Scotland for the first time, in Auckland, New Zealand.  The residency will run from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday (including the public holiday on 4 June) from 28 May-8 June. We are currently seeking applications from artists and performers who would like to take part.

Artists: Rough Mix is open to both experienced and early-career artists working in any artform.  Selection is through an open call process which has now closed. if you have applied, you will hear back from us by Friday 20th April. 

Performers: We are recruiting an ensemble of Auckland-based performers to be part of Rough Mix. We're looking for flexible, open performers from a theatre, performance or dance background to work with a multi artform group of artists who want to explore new ways of working.  Experience of improvisational or developmental work would be helpful, but an open mind and a willingness to get stuck in are essential. Please apply using the online form here. The deadline for Performer applications is midnight NZ (1pm UK) on Sunday 15th April - late applications will not be considered.
