Write a statement of intent that discusses:
what is your theatre piece is about?
what are the politics at stake?
what inspires you to tackle this issue?
who is your audience? (who do you want to reach?)
what change do you want to see happen as a result of your theatre piece?
what kind of theatre event would you create? what theatre-making techniques would you employ? (is this a play you write? that you devise with others? are you using verbatim techniques?)
Who are the characters? What is the basic story? What is the genre/style? (is the story chronological? episodic?)
what is the aesthetic? (minimalistic? huge spectacle? high-tech?)
How do you want to affect your audience?
What is the title of your piece?
Include details that will help us understand your vision!
