The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse is an opportunity for devising theatre makers. You will be artistically supported in the development of a new work through a two-stage process.

We will encourage connection and collaboration to unlock the potential of new ideas.

Due to the nature of this year we are offering this opportunity for free.

To apply, submit a one-page outline of a new show idea that you wish to develop with Red Leap.

This idea should be in the early stages of development, and we will accept projects that have already had some workshopping.

Individuals or small groups can apply.
