BWBTC’s international art competition, launched in 2010.
But… why would a theatre company hold an art competition? Let us ‘splain:
Our Joining Sword & Pen playwriting competition offers writers from around the globe the opportunity to take inspiration from a work of visual art, using it as a basis for a brand new work for theatre that features strong roles for women, and explores violence as a storytelling tool.
COMING SOON: The Winner of IS&P 2016
We tried something a little different this time around, in an attempt to generate some art featuring swords.
Ensemble members were photographed in a variety of costumes, with a variety of weapons; our favorite image will be revealed at the 9/8 performance of The Promise of a Rose Garden, and will form the basis of Joining Sword & Pen 2017-18.
