Welcome to Morgan & Abi’s Power Share.
What would you do with a little taste of power? Would you share it, the way we always say we’ll do? Or would you keep it for yourself?
In an industry that often feels inaccessible, where opportunities are out-of-reach for so many, we want to examine the reality of carrying out an altruistic idea.
Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and Abi Zakarian will be in residence during their week and invite you to pop in. They will be joined by a different co-curator every day. There will be workshops, play readings and in the evening four short pieces, all programmed by the co-curators. We’ll also make space during the day to come and talk to us about writing, working and navigating this industry.
We want to find ways to make positive changes to the theatre industry; this week is intended to be the beginnings of something that will hopefully do just that.
We want to pay every artist involved a fair wage for their work and your donation will go towards this.
So come join the revolution and share the power!
