10 actors, one day, one city, and the greatest monologue of all.
TO BE is the first strand of THE VOICES PROJECT from the Australian Theatre for Young People (atyp), and is a new take on the most famous words ever written for the stage.
THE VOICES PROJECT presents new monologues written by emerging playwrights from atyp's Fresh Ink writing program in an annual theatre production (THE ONE SURE THING ran in February at atyp in Sydney), and online as short films: BOOT and BAT EYES, adapted from acclaimed monologues from playwrights Joanna Erskine and Jessica Bellamy.
Watch BOOT, here: vimeo.com/39094345
Watch BAT EYES, here: vimeo.com/39093426
There is also an online writing competition, LOVE BYTES, where you can win a place at the 2012 National Studio and an iPad. Details: freshink.com.au/competition/
THE VOICES PROJECT aims to provide a platform for the voices of a new generation of Australian playwrights, performers, theatremakers and directors to be seen, to be heard, to be performed.
And what better way of kicking off a monologue project off than with the greatest monologue of them all?
