Looking For Talent (L4T)

Organisation: Birds of Paradise Theatre Company

Region: Central Scotland

Artform: Theatre

Welcoming: All Disabilities ; Inclusive/Integrated

Opportunity Summary:

L4T is a large scale outreach and research project designed to find disabled individuals who could be the professional actors and theatre makers of tomorrow. We will find partner groups and venues through which we will deliver educational workshops building towards an intensive Autumn programme in 2015. The intended overall outcome of the L4T is to identify a pool of highly talented disabled people from around Scotland who are ready to develop their skills and experience and become readily employable performance and theatre artists whilst at the same time further developing deaf and disabled audiences for theatre and performance works. For further information or to express an interest in taking part in L4T please email or phone Birds of Paradise Theatre on 0141 552 1725.

Organisation Information:

Birds of Paradise Theatre Company is dedicated to promoting the work of disabled artists in partnership with non-disabled artists and mainstream theatre venues and companies. Equalities are at the heart of all company activity and cuts across all areas of the work. The Company's Annual Production showcases the work of disabled artists across Scotland and is the lynchpin of artistic policy. The Agent for Change programme promotes dialogue, discussion and includes artistic master classes. Education and Outreach activities develop talent from an early age. We work in specialist schools; create outreach projects to complement the national tour; create community projects and develop pathways for the next generation of disabled theatre practitioners.
