We are looking for work with a focus on Puppetry, Mask, Object Manipulation and Physical Theatre.

Bristol Festival of Puppetry and Tobacco Factory Theatres are looking for companies and artists based in the South West to present new work as part of Prototype. It’s a chance to share new performance ideas with a supportive audience, gain useful feedback and build relationships.

This Prototype has a focus on work including puppetry, mask performance, object manipulation and physical theatre.

Prototype is Tobacco Factory Theatres’ regular scratch night. At each event up to 5 artists/companies working across a wide range of disciplines try out brand new ideas in front of an engaged and supportive audience. Prototype’s been doing its thing for seven years now and is a well-established part of how the city supports its artists to develop the shows of tomorrow.

Deadline: Monday 31st July
Event: Tuesday 5th September, 19:30 at Factory Theatre, Tobacco Factory Theatres

If you have an idea for a show burning to get out, please contact for an application form.

NB:  Prototype is an unpaid opportunity.
