MAKE is an artist development programme and residency initiative of Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival , Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum. It is open to Irish and international artists for the purpose of generating new performance work outside of the traditional writer-led model at all career levels.
The 11th MAKE residency will run from Saturday 2 November to Sunday 10 November.
MAKE takes the form of an annual residential laboratory where ideas for new performance work are developed with the mentorship of renowned theatre artists and for some, in collaboration with other participants. MAKE puts emphasis on the generation of new performance work outside of the traditional writer-led model. It is open to artists exploring a variety of dramaturgical models in their work including devised work, documentary theatre work, text-driven work using found or fragmentary texts, new writing experimenting with form and more recently, music theatre.
As always, applications from international artists are welcome too. If successful, international applicants are encouraged to look to their own arts funders and Councils for support towards the costs of travel to Ireland.
