Our fabulous scratch night of new performance QUEER & NOW is back for SHOUT 2019 and we are on the hunt for the brilliant LGBTQ+ performance artists and theatre-makers to take part.

We are looking for new voices and the next generation of midlands queer theatre/performance makers and artists. As part of SHOUT’s ongoing commitment to support and develop queer artistic practices in the midlands QUEER & NOW offers a testing ground for artists to experiment and receive feedback (from a live audience) – we are also hoping to build new relationships with artists through this process with a view to potentially developing full scale work in the future. Artists featured in the 2018 line-up have gone on to take their shows to Edinburgh Fringe, tour the UK, and create festivals of their own.

Got a performance idea you want to test in front of an audience? Then get involved. All you need to do is complete a short application form and return it to us by Monday 7th October. Successful applicants will perform at QUEER & NOW on Saturday 9th November at Birmingham Repertory Theatre.  All successful applicants will receive £150 to cover any associated production costs, high quality video and photo documentation, and some mentoring from the SHOUT team.
