CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR PILOT Night Thursday 29th March @ mac Birmingham, West Midlands – CO PILOTED BY FIERCE FESTIVAL

Deadline for submissions Mon 30th Jan 5pm


PILOT IS THE CELEBRATED SCRATCH EVENT WHERE THEATRE MAKERS GET TO TEST OUT NEW IDEAS IN FRONT OF A LIVELY, SUPPORTIVE CROWD.

Fierce Festival Artistic Directors Harun Morrison & Laura McDermott join the PILOT team as guest curators for March Pilot at mac, Birmingham. This Pilot will also be part of the launch of Fierce Festival 2012 and will be complemented by activity happening across the building through out this Thursday evening. 

Fierce is annual festival of live art that takes place across Birmingham in a mix of established art venues, found sites and public spaces.  The forthcoming Fierce Festival runs from Thurs 29 March – Sun 8th April. You can find out more about us at. . . www.wearefierce.org

We hope that Pilot applicants will make the most of the spaces on offer which include the cinema, Cannon Hill Park itself, the bar and the shared connnecting spaces in the building.   The event will be a peripatetic one, happening across mac. Here’s a bit of info about the spaces available, please demonstrate how you would work with one of the sites in your proposal.

 

 

1. Hexagon (http://www.macarts.co.uk/hires/hexagon-theatre/) – This is an old-school lecture hall. Could be perfect for a sly performance-lecture?

 

 

3. Cafe bar

 

4. Weston Room – Used as painting room and workshop space, this could be perfect for something, installative, intimate and messy.

 

5. There are plenty of undefined public spaces: corridors, stairways, the lift  what could you do in one of these?

 

6. Outside – MAC has the good fortune to be situated within the bucolic Cannon Hill Park, lakes, geese, bandstands. . .  (http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/cannonhillpark)
