To The Edge

We are looking for young LGBTQIA+ theatre makers to take part in a Creative Response Project, ‘To the Edge’, a movement piece exploring queer intimacy and relationships.


We are looking for 18-25 year olds, based in West London*, who are interested in theatre, devising, and/or movement, to creatively explore themes surrounding queer intimacy. Led by transdisciplinary, counter-cultural Outbox Theatre who create spaces where queer people can dream and imagine, you will be creating a movement piece in response to our 25th anniversary production of Closer. This project will be creatively led by you, using your experiences, bodies and imaginations to interrogate Closer through a queer lens.

In order to apply, you must fulfil all of the following criteria:

  • Aged 18-25.
  • Have a passion for theatre, theatre making, devising, and/or movement. Please note that any and all levels of experience will be considered and formal theatre making experience is not a requirement.

  • *Currently live in one of the 10 West London Boroughs- Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond Upon Thames, Wandsworth and Westminster.
