Force Majeure in partnership with Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP)
Force Majeure and ATYP are delighted to announce the launch of FINE LINE, a three-year mentoring program to discover the next generation of writers for dance.
Through FINE LINE young writers aged 18 – 26 will be given the opportunity to develop skills in writing for the medium of dance theatre.
The FINE LINE program marks a three-year partnership between Force Majeure and ATYP, led by Force Majeure’s Artistic Director Danielle Micich, and ATYP’s Artistic Director Fraser Corfield, in conjunction with ATYP Resident Dramaturg, Jennifer Medway.
FINE LINE will involve a Skills Masterclass, a series of Script Workshops and the full-scale production of one or two scripts developed during the program.
