Arena Collaborative Theatremakers

Are you an emerging artist based in Wolverhampton? Are you a student at the University of Wolverhampton studying the Performing Arts or with an interest in any aspect of the performing arts?

We are looking for writers, performers, devisers, directors and designers to join us as part of an exciting new project from the Arena Theatre

Arena Collaborative Theatremakers (ACT) is a new initiative to allow students, recent graduates and emerging artists the space to develop their own work with support from industry professionals. The collective will meet twice a month in the Tilstone Studio at the Arena, and will give an opportunity for students to present 'work in progress' to a small audience allowing them to develop their projects in a safe, creative space.

Each evening will feature a 'work in progress', an interview with an industry professional and a featured piece from an invited performer. Feedback is actively encouraged and sessions are designed to be the perfect environment to network with local creatives.

ACT will be meeting this autumn on the following dates:

Tuesday 26th September at 7.00pm

Tuesday 17th October at 7.00pm

Tuesday 7th November at 7.00pm

Tuesday 21st November at 7.00pm (Story Slam)

Performances are FREE to attend and open to all.

If you would like to be involved, come along to one of the events listed above or contact Neil Reading at the Arena on
