Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is looking to present a magical new winter themed show for young children (3-7) and their families to be staged Christmas 2020.

In light of the current uncertainties facing artists and performers, and our position as champions of creativity and learning within the city, we are offering this commissioning opportunity in the first instance to University of Lincoln Graduates – and the commission consists of mentoring and support to create the piece, a guaranteed fee (plus the potential for additional box-office split), alongside set construction, costumes, full technical and marketing support, and lighting and sound design.

Designed to be COVID-safe, with socially distanced practices built in from the start, the commissioned artists will produce a show that responds to one of three potential titles:

Pies, Puddings & Presents!

Snowday!

The Snow Hare in Winter

The piece will be performed in Lincoln Performing Arts Centre’s main auditorium space and will be created and performed by a maximum of two artists. The theatre is currently end-on, but can be reconfigured into other seating arrangements, so long as the overall socially distanced capacity is retained. We are open to other models of presentation that preserve overall ticketed capacities such as smaller, repeated performances. The production should incorporate live music elements (where safe to do so) or pre-recorded original compositions.

The commissioned artists will be able to demonstrate experience of making work for younger audiences but will seek to make the show accessible to as many people as possible. 

For more information on the commission and how to apply please download this document.

This means that all events currently on sale will be either postponed or cancelled, and customers contacted to arrange for exchanges or refunds. Craig Morrow, Artistic Director, said: “It is a heart-breaking decision but one that has become increasingly inevitable as we struggle to reconcile our business with the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Like most venues, LPAC is entirely reliant on ticket sales and traded income to cover the cost of its operations and it is simply not possible to deliver the same scale of activity this year with social distancing in place. Furthermore, the lack of a time table for re-opening from central Government, combined with very real possibility of having to cancel productions in the event of a second wave or local lockdown as we move into the autumn/winter season, makes long term planning particularly precarious, and the level of investment required to produce events such as PopOut Festival or our family Christmas show, are simply too great a risk.” However, this announcement does not mean that Lincoln Performing

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) is announcing that, due to the effects of the ongoing global pandemic, it will not be reopening fully until Spring 2021 at the earliest. This means that all events currently on sale will be either postponed or cancelled, and customers contacted to arrange for exchanges or refunds.

Craig Morrow, Artistic Director, said:

“It is a heart-breaking decision but one that has become increasingly inevitable as we struggle to reconcile our business with the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Like most venues, LPAC is entirely reliant on ticket sales and traded income to cover the cost of its operations and it is simply not possible to deliver the same scale of activity this year with social distancing in place. Furthermore, the lack of a time table for re-opening from central Government, combined with very real possibility of having to cancel productions in the event of a second wave or local lockdown as we move into the autumn/winter season, makes long term planning particularly precarious, and the level of investment required to produce events such as PopOut Festival or our family Christmas show, are simply too great a risk.”

However, this announcement does not mean that Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is set to be mothballed, rather the theatre has plans to offer an alternative pop-up programme of events and activities inside the venue, around the city, and online, which work within the boundaries of social distancing. This programme will be launched later in the summer. Craig added:
“Although it is clear we cannot continue as normal, we are determined to find creative ways to present performance and cultural events that work within COVID Safe guidelines and I have been really energised by the possibilities. From small-scale shows specially adapted for social bubbles, to outdoor installations, to digital work, there is a wealth of opportunity to explore how we can continue to share live experiences – it’s actually quite exciting!”

One example of this revised programme will feature a re-imagined Christmas show that takes audiences around the city and will hopefully merge Augmented Reality technology with live performance. Titled A Distant Christmas, this alternative to a main stage show will be consciously designed to offer a festive story in a safe and engaging format. Craig Morrow, who is also the creative lead on the project says:

“We’re investing the same level of theatrical ingenuity as we would our main house Christmas Shows, but by freeing ourselves from having to fill an auditorium to cover the costs of a large production budget and instead drawing on the expertise of our colleagues within University of Lincoln, we will have the flexibility to adapt the format to whatever restrictions on mass gatherings are in place this winter. We’re still in the early planning stages and exploring exactly what can be achieved with the technology but we expect A Distant Christmas to offer an appropriate response to these unique times.”

The pop-up season details will be announced at the end of summer. For more information on refunds and exchanges for existing programming please visit our FAQS

Week Five – Contemplation Station – NHS Step 5: Pay Attention to the Present Moment (Mindfulness) Our inspiration for this project has come from the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing and week five’s theme is Mindfulness.

Indeed, being in the moment, captivated by a performance, or engaged in a creative task, is a really simple way of reaching mindfulness. Certainly, paying attention to the present can help us to enjoy the things that we might have been taking for granted.

The brilliant things about learning something creative is that the process is just as important as the end result, so you don’t have to worry about getting it right the first time. In fact, in our world, there is no getting it right or wrong. It really is the taking part that counts.

Why not get those creative juices flowing by having a go at something new, and letting us know all about it so we can learn from you.

Wellness Compass is mass-participatory community project that nurtures wellbeing. It is the people of Lincolnshire’s creative guide to nurturing wellbeing. Keeping our bodies and minds active, healthy and strong, together.

Week Two – NogginJogging – NHS Step 2: Be Physically Active

Our inspiration for this project has come from the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing and week two’s theme is Being Physically Active. If you’re using culture and creativity creativity to inspire you to be active we would love to see your short video diary demonstrating what you do and why.

Being active is great for both body and mind. According to the NHS, it raises our self-esteem, boosts our mood and helps us achieve goals. At Lincoln Performing Arts Centre we feel much the same way about creative activity, so it’s a double helping of positivity this week.

To give you some inspiration the LPAC team have shared some examples on YouTube of how they are using culture and creativity to nurture their wellbeing, but this is just to get the ball rolling.

 

What we are really interested in is the approach of our community members. We want to hear your stories, hear see creative adventures and learn from your advice. For more information contact our producer Dawn Richmond-Gordon.
