Theatre Royal Stratford East is Looking for Emerging Musicians/Composers

Enlight1Following their first successful search for a new writing artist TRSE has never engaged with before, TRSE is offering £500 to a singer-songwriter/musician/composer to join them this summer for a new project. They are looking for new and emerging music artists they have never engaged with: Forward-thinking singer-songwriters/musicians/composers who can tell stories with beats, notes and words. It doesn’t matter if your preferred style is R&B or bluegrass or grunge rock, they want to hear from you.

They’re looking to create new theatre pieces that cross genre-boundaries. How can they play with story and structure with artists from different areas to create theatre that really speaks to and reflects our current lives; that talk about how we live today. How can they use music to tell stories that move people and affect change?

They are especially interested in meeting BAME music artists, but are open to anyone creating music they think fits what they’re trying to do. You don’t need to have written a theatre piece before, but you do need to be interested in blending that form with your work to form a hybrid. If you love to tell stories through music and words, they want to hear from you.

They are specifically looking for artists to join them for two weeks this July to work on a new piece of theatre in collaboration with book writers and/or lyricists. Interested artists should send in one song that best reflects their work (you are welcome to also include links to Soundcloud/Vimeo/etc.) as well as a brief bio introducing themselves and why they chose that one song. All entries need to be received by midnight on 22 June and can be emailed to
