— One Day to Play, National Theatre of Scotland, 2018

Collaborator: Clarissa Parinussa Kruithof

One Day to Play is a paid opportunity for six artists to experiment across art-forms and to generate a brand new idea.
Six artists will be selected from across different art forms (spoken word, dance, theatre, visual art, music) and will be matched into pairs, invited to share their practices and approaches to making work. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from spoken word and dance artists. Facilitated and guided by Jenny Lindsay (of Flint & Pitch/ formerly Rally & Broad) over the course of one day the artists will work towards presenting ten minutes of a brand new idea as part of the National Theatre of Scotland’s Just Start Here Festival.

The opportunity has been designed in recognition of, and in response to, the strength of Aberdeen’s dance, spoken word, music and visual art scenes. We hope to seed cross-fertilisation of these different forms and sectors, bringing artists together and encourage artists to think about theatre and performance as a form that gives space for multiple art-forms to come together.
