Bukal At Woodford Festival!
Following on from JUTE Theatre Company’s wildly successful Cairns season, and its extensive ten week tour of Indigenous communities in the Far North, Bukal by Andrea James was presented at the Woodford Folk Festival from 27 -31 December 2018. Audiences had the opportunity to see this inspirational tale of Henrietta Marrie (Fourmile) and her journey from her home in the community of Yarrabah to the United Nation’s global stage.
Write Sparks 101
Our Write Sparks 101 writing development stream is open to first-time participants to the Write Sparks program, new regional writers with little or no knowledge of writing stories for performance. The program has wrapped for 2018, but please do contact us if you are interested in the 2019 program. We will be calling for applications in January/February this year, and are especially interested to hear from writers from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Write Sparks’ Writers-in-Residence stream is for experienced playwrights who wish to extend their writing practice and work toward a finished writing draft of a full-length play for theatre production. In 2018 JUTE hosted 8 regional playwrights in our residency program, and developed their 8 new works. Look forward to hearing more about them in 2019!
