The Works

The Works is an ongoing series dedicated to developing work by theatre makers, dancers, choreographers, musicians and visual artists working in cross-art form and interdisciplinary exploration.

At the heart of The Works is a dialogue between artists and audiences. It's an opportunity for artists to seek the opinions of the audience they wish to attract, and an opportunity for people who care about performance to engage in collective dramaturgy and development, supporting artists to envisage the choices and possibilities available to them.

The Works is presented as part of a commitment by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival to support the development of artists and the creation of innovative performance.

As part of the presentation, constructive feedback from the audience can be sought as useful to each artist. The artists will be invited to have two formal conversations with Dramaturg Lou Cope, as part of the process – one before the event and one after – to ensure that the artist gets the most from this opportunity to test the right material and have as meaningful and productive discussions with the audience as possible.

We are currently accepting applications for the spring event, which takes place on Thu 14 Mar 2019.
