Live Cinema UK is delighted to announce the 30 artists selected for its inaugural Live Cinema Talent Pool: a cross-sector professional development and commissioning opportunity for artists working across live performance and the moving image.
Supported by Arts Council England, King’s College London and the University of Brighton, the Talent Pool comprises artists and organisations ranging from musicians, composers and audiovisual performers to immersive dance companies, live art performers, puppetry, live foley artists, and diverse cross-art form professionals whose work pushes the boundaries of live performance involving or inspired by the moving image.
The Talent Pool will commence with workshops this December, before each participant pitching for 3 x £5000 commissions to be developed in 2018 and presented at the 2018 Live Cinema Conference – date and location to be announced this December. All participants will receive mentoring from Live Cinema UK plus matchmaking with producers to help develop and realise new live cinema work.
Further details of participants work will be regularly updated on our website and in the Live Cinema Network newsletter throughout 2018:
