Producer Wanted!

    My creative life is getting excitingly hectic. So, I want to start working with a producer, ideally looking ahead to 2017 and beyond to a longer term partnership. Maybe it's you... Or someone you know...?
    My new solo show The Conscious Uncoupling has been picking up lovely reviews and was programmed by Southbank Centre for their Festival of Love 2016. It follows Nineties Woman which was funded by Arts Council England, toured the UK to great reviews and is being made into a documentary.
    My book Is Monogamy Dead will be out with Accent Press next July and I hope to take The Conscious Uncoupling to Edinburgh next August and that the two things will cross-promote nicely. I also have plans for a sort of 'breakup monologues' where other artists will share their breakup stories with me.
    My spoken word chat show / podcast recording Queer'Say has received Arts Council England funding for a third successive year and visits Wilderness festival, Cheltenham Literature Festival, Tate Modern and more. Resonance FM is our broadcast partner.
    I have also been commissioned by Science Gallery London / Wellcome Trust to deliver a new project called The Science of Snogging, in collaboration with Amie Taylor. We performed a test version at Latitude Festival last Friday.
    If you have experience taking shows on tour, dealing with venues, fundraising (especially via ACE and Wellcome) and generally getting artists like me up to the next level, I would love to hear from you.
    I have a funding bid currently in which would provide your first £1000.
    After that, we would work together to generate our income. The events all have a great track record at attracting funding. So the money will be there if we think creatively and work hard.
    If you're interested, please drop me a message via the contact page at www.rosiewilby.com and then come along to The Conscious Uncoupling at Camden People's Theatre from August 17 - 21.
    Interviews will be held the following week, during which we will discuss your ideas for development of the show and which venues you see it touring to.
    If you're in Edinburgh at that time, please drop me a line and come to Queer'Say at Rich Mix on Sept 9 and we will arrange a chat the w/b September 10.
