Out of London: Londoners Needed

The Space is a Grade II listed former church in West Ferry, East London, currently used as an arts centre for the local and wider community. A new season of performances is planned, called Out of London, to be performed by (and performed to) the diverse and delightful people of London. The season hopes to reflect and explore how our fair city feels in the 21st century. If you would like to be part of this season and have an idea for a performance, the organisers at The Space would love to hear from you.

The 'Out of London' season has a number of aims.

- To examine and explore performances that were created in London and/or inspired by London. These can be new works or classic texts, young bands or old time music hall.

- To explore what it means to be a Londoner, living in a capital, commuting, meeting people. Celebrating the diversity and personality of a 21st Century Londoner.

Submissions can be for a range of time lengths, short pieces will be

combined in some in-house produced nights and longer ones will be given slots on their own.

Applicants should e-mail their proposal to adam@space.org.uk and include an outline of the piece, their availability, length of the piece and contact details.

Londoners? Given free rein to stand up and hold forth on their city in front of a paying audience? In the form of their choice, be it poetry, song, readings of old or new work?

Well, what are you waiting for?
