National Theatre Wales Open call for artists for Sisters project

National Theatre Wales Open call for artists for Sisters project

National Theatre Wales are looking to connect with female performers, artists, creatives and designers whose cultural roots and histories are intrinsically linked and connected to the Indian Sub-continent to help with an initial phase of research into ‘Sisters’, a brand new collaborative project between NTW and Junoon Theatre in Mumbai, funded by Wales Arts International and British Council.

The project will be an international collaboration between South Asian artists in India and Wales. ‘Sisters’ will create an opportunity to explore and interrogate the myths and notions of what it means to be an Asian woman today; investigating how our cultural heritage impacts on our contemporary lives and identities. What are the connections and differences between these two countries and how have they shaped who we are now? The project kicks off in the coming weeks and will culminate in a sharing of ideas and work-in progress performance in March 2018.

There will be an open house at the NTW Office on 5th June from 4pm, where they’d love to meet you and chat about what you do and your connections and stories to India. This will be an opportunity to share developing plans for the project, hear your thoughts and responses and explore ways in which you might be involved. They are looking to build a creative team that will help steer the project as well as find supporters, advisors and critical friends.

If you are a performer, artist or creative who’d like to know about the project, or just want to come to the open house and get to know those invovled, please contact Simon.coates@nationaltheatrewales.org
