Don’t Wait Tables 

Don’t wait tables – make an act!

Project summary:
This two-day training session is aimed at artists who usually supplement their artist’s income with an unrewarding part-time job. The project is designed to assist these artists in making a short act from which they can earn cash money. This could be a street show, a roving performance or a cabaret act.

Dates, times and location(s):
14 and 15 September 2013 at Soho Theatre Studio, London (exact dates and times tbc)

Application procedure:
Applications should be emailed and composed of:
• a short CV
• a brief artist’s statement about the ideas that inform your practice
• 200 words on why you would like to take part in this project

Supporting materials (images, video, links etc.) are welcome but not essential.

A short list of tables/restaurants you may have waited in the past is not necessary.

Please email your application to [email protected] (cc’d to [email protected]) by Monday 1 July.

The artist:
Longtime Duckie associate artist, Ursula Martinez is a writer, performance artist and cult cabaret diva who has managed to move freely between the commercial sector and the ‘arty’ sector, which has given her a good balance between artistic satisfaction and financial security.
