SEEN: Chaos

Monday 11/11/2019

Second Stage

The silence shatters in an explosion. The laws that have governed for so long lay trampled upon like dusty rags. This is fight or flight territory; survival of the fittest, dirtiest, most deceptive. Amongst the chaos, you do what you must. We’re looking for violent eruptions, shattered illusions, daring conflicts. There is no room for safety in these scripts.

Please be aware that although this theme follows the VIOLENCE SERIES in concept, we view it as open and flexible; please know that writers may respond in absurd and indirect ways. Focus on the micro or macro, the shared or personal experience, play with genre, form, and content. Exercise as much artistic freedom as the theme allows.

Please note that we are especially interested in receiving submissions from people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals, working class individuals and those who identify as trans / non-binary.

As always, SEEN will be three 10-minute script-in-hand performances which all respond to a particular theme, followed by a post-scratch Q&A/discussion between writers and the audience.
