Melbourne University Shakespeare Company (MUSC)

Organised by:
Shakespeare Company (MUSC)

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES???? If you are a human person** the answer is inherently yes.
We’re opening up PITCHes of INTEREST for MUSC 2017!
Send us an email at mu.shakespeare@gmail.com by Jan 20th with your Pitch Package: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rOwcwrQv7gcSBUEBWttgg_NW0G1jjVYOjf_rqxPhUXs/edit?pli=1

Some points:
We want to work with you to move away from traditional Shakespeare -- this includes traditional styles of acting and directing --- devising is encouraged
We are encouraging you to use the text as a starting point, not a bible (lol)
We are not requesting that your pitches are radically political, but radically different from what we’ve seen before in MUSC
We want a diverse range of people applying, because MUSC has been predominantly white and male (lets change that)
You do not have to like Shakespeare or have ever done it before. We are wanting to open up the field to any and everyone to get involved.
Free yourself from the shackle-spears and dare 2 b or not to b (hahhahahaha) a director/actor/dramaturg/stage manager/any1 u want

**(Also if you’re a dog pls feel welcome)
