Headlong makes exhilarating theatre for audiences across the UK. A 
touring company with a big imagination, we interrogate the contemporary 
world through a programme of fearless new writing, re-imagined classics 
and potent twentieth century plays.

Via a combination of bold artistic leadership and the championing of 
visionary artists we are able to create spectacular work with the 
highest possible production values. By positioning the next generation 
of theatre makers alongside artists of international standing, Headlong 
ensures it consistently creates work that is bold and original.

*Headlong Digital Artist Scheme*

Since 2014, Headlong has been working with ground-breaking artists to 
imagine the future of digital theatre.

In 2014, the visual artist Michael Takeo Magruder created an interactive 
world,The Nether Realm, which explored the fine line between reality and 
virtual reality in the modern world. The artwork was installed as a 
physical installation in the foyer of the Royal Court Theatre throughout 
the run of Jennifer Haley’s The Nether.

During 2015, interactive theatre maker Tassos Stevens (Coney) has been 
working on creating an interactive online story about identity and 
addiction that will be launched during the West End run of People, 
Places and Things in Spring 2016.

For 2016, we have decided to select our digital artists through an open 
application process.

We welcome applications from artists from all backgrounds and at all 
stages of their careers, who are working with or have an interest in 
working with digital media.

The scheme offers the selected digital artist:

  * A year long attachment with Headlong.
  * A £5000 commission for a digital artwork.
  * Mentoring
  * An allowance to cover travel expenses

For further information and to apply please visit Headlong's website at: 

The deadline for applications is *5pm on Friday 26 February*.
