Glastonbury Theatre and Circus Fields are commissioning four new shows for Glastonbury Festival 2015. They are looking to support the creation of new experiences that are 'spectacular and brave', and that 'work well with the creative atmosphere and scale of the festival'.
There are four separate categories for the commissions:
Outdoor Installation: £7000 for an outdoor interactive installation to run throughout the four days of the festival.
Large-scale Circus Show: £8000 for a large-scale circus show for the big top, to be performed on three days of the festival. This show should have at least five performers, be at least 30 minutes long, and contain a high skill level.
Ground-based Circus Show: £3500 for a ground-based show for three days of the festival in the circus big top, and then an appearance at Bristol Circus Festival in October 2015.
Street Theatre / Walkabout Show: £1250 for a street theatre show to be performed for three days of the festival.
In addition to the grants, Glastonbury will utilise its infrastructure to support the presentation of the commissions at the festival; mentor the selected artists during the planning and creation phases and during the festival; and support the selected artists to bring their commissioned work to other audiences after the festival.
