What is this about?
DYSPLA has received a fund the development of two Neurodivergent story-makers for a second year running. This year’s 12-month long Residency starts in April 2020 with an Industry Sharing in January 2021.
The residency will be tailored to each resident and will take place in London throughout 2020. Along with Surgery Scripts sessions, dramaturgy, a rehearsed reading and mentoring, DYSPLA will provide travel subsidies for anyone outside of London, desk space and rehearsal rooms.
DYSPLA is accepting pitch ideas for their residency and welcomes submission from anyone regardless of experience. If you want to tell a story, we want to hear from you and you can submit your pitch idea in any format: via this link, over the phone, via email, a video pitch or an mp3 file. All we ask for is an outline of your story and why you need to tell it.
