Extra PILOT Night- submissions open now!

At Stirchley Baths, Birmingham on Thursday 12th May 2016

We are excited to announce that we are having an EXTRA PILOT night and submissions are now open! On Thursday 12th May PILOT Nights will land at the newly opened Stirchley Baths,  co-piloted by Play More. We’re really pleased that this PILOT Night will also take place as part of Art SOAK festival. This is a chance for contemporary theatre makers to present up to 20 minutes of new, work-in-progress material, in front of a real live audience and industry peers.

Artists will receive a small fee, professional photo and video documentation of their work, and feedback from the audience. It will also be a great opportunity to create links within the industry and meet future potential arts partners.

Open to theatre makers from across the UK, PILOT Nights take place in venues across the West Midlands. Each event is programmed and managed by a Co-Pilot, in conjunction with the core PILOT Nights team. Co-Pilots are practising artists with an interest in producing/curating.  Having a different Co-Pilot for each event ensures the programme remains diverse and exciting, and places artists at the heart of PILOT Nights.

PILOT Nights encourages applications from diverse sections of the theatre-making community and welcomes applications from disabled artists. Please contact PILOT Nights if you would like the application form in alternative formats, or have any alternative access needs.

The Co-Pilot:

Birmingham based arts collective, Play More, create subversive, playful and humorous experiences in non-theatre spaces to encourage people to get involved and play more. They have delivered work in factories, pubs, city squares and music festivals with previous partners including the mac, Birmingham Hippodrome and Birmingham University. They like immersive and exploratory performance, working in unusual spaces and exploring the space between performance, spectacle and gameThe Venue:
Stirchley Baths is a newly opened community hub in restored Edwardian Swimming baths. Please bear in mind that due to the restrictions of the venue there will be basic technical support and there will be no blackout in the space. There will be a main stage space created but there is also a balcony space that can be used for performance if an interest is expressed in that area. You can also view images here and learn more about the space by visiting the website here.

Art SOAK festival is produced by Arts Forum Selly Oak & aims to give local residents an opportunity to immerse themselves in the local arts scene with performances, workshops & creative walks throughout the Selly Oak district.. 2016 will be the 5th Art SOAK.
