Callout for creative live performance ideas for BBC television

Posted on 22 April 2016

Have you got an idea for a creative live performance? We want to hear about it...

Performance Live (working title) is looking for great ideas for a new strand of live performance for BBC television. 

About the project

Performance Live is a partnership between Arts Council England and BBC Arts in association with Battersea Arts Centre. We want to hear ideas for live performance – including theatre, dance, comedy, spoken word, live art and everything in between. 

We are especially interested in ideas that explore the middle ground between live performance and television. We want to work with a diverse range of partners across the country to create a genuinely collaborative project that breaks new ground in arts television.
