Applications Invited For Playwrights

Thu, 16 Dec 2004

Tena Koutou, Talofa Lava, Fakalofa Atu, Kiaorana Malo e Lelei, Taloha ni, Ni Sa Bula. Pasifika Greetings to all We would be grateful if you could pass on this information to those who'll appreciate it.

Playmarket and Auckland City Council are inviting applications from Maori and Pacific Island playwrights, directors and producers to present 15-25 minute presentations of theatre work in progress as part of the Pasifika Playwrights Development Forum at TAPAC, Motions Road, Western Springs, Auckland on Friday March 11 2005.

Please make your application to Mark Amery at this email address by January 31. Your application should be in writing. Please note that presentation spaces are limited to six.

This is a valuable development opportunity for you to work towards - presenting an excerpt of your work and presenting your plans for a small audience in a friendly, supportive professional studio environment. This provides an opportunity to try out material in front of your contemporaries and share work, as well as have a deadline to work towards in developing your ideas further.

You are also invited to attend this important afternoon gathering for Maori and Pacific Island professional theatre practitioners

This forum will occur on Friday afternoon March 11, 2-5 pm (the day before Pasifika and our four selected works to have readings and workshops on that day).

On Saturday March 12 we will be presenting in the TAPAC Theatre four plays in development: Taku Kiri by Vicki Anne Heikell (reading), His Mother's Son by Leilani Unasa (reading), Angels by Tanya Muagututi'a (workshop presentation) and Lost Again by Miria George (workshop presentation).

We are not able to fund expenses or casts, but may have by arrangement a small pool of Pakeha and Maori actors available through UNITEC for those from outside Auckland or without producers or casts.
