IO Performance’s INTER/OUTER season is an initiative that supports emerging directors in their journey to mount their first full length play. This opportunity is one offered exclusively by IO Performance and has been an integral part of our season since our venue launch in 2019. We believe there are fantastic emerging artists who are capable of achieving outstanding results and that their work will inevitably add to our rich and dynamic arts sector in Tasmania.
They can only grow and develop this craft by being supported by their local community, and we believe we can offer our skills and expertise to mentor these emerging creatives, as well as giving them a safe space to take risks and to feel valued as artists in the community. The program is chosen through an open application process and asks each creative to be bold in their proposals, as well as justify their choices in relation to the upcoming season theme. It is a requirement that they choose published One Act plays.
