I am fortunate to be one of the writers contributing to The Colour Blind Project which is in June. Ten pieces and a range of independent directors will be converging in June to launch the first of many projects by Josipa Draisma and Stephanie Son. For details on how to audition, please see below.

The Colour Blind Project is calling actors of multicultural or Indigenous backgrounds! We are looking for 18 actors, male or female, to take part in The Colour Blind Project festival in
Sydney 2010. These roles are across 10 selected short works that cover a variety of themes, genres and styles. The characters are exciting, fun and provocative – stuff to really
sink your teeth into and showcase your talent.
The Colour Blind Project is a brand new theatre festival aimed to showcase actors from multicultural or Indigenous backgrounds. The festival will consist of new, Australian short
works and aims to change who and what we see on the Australian stage and truthfully reflect our contemporary Australian society. Please note that The Colour Blind Project is not a co-op and actors participate on a voluntary basis. Actors must be 18 years or older. The Colour Blind Project has received industry interest and will be inviting industry professionals such as media, casting agents,
funding body representatives, artistic directors of major companies as well as independent theatre companies, to the performances so there is potential for your appearance in The
Colour Blind Project festival to lead to many exciting opportunites!
Performances are from the 30th June – 10th July, 2010 in an Inner City venue in Sydney.
Performances will be on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Registrationscan only be accepted from people living in Sydney, NSW or nearby areas. Participation is on a voluntary basis so no compensation is available for travel and accommodation for participating in The Colour Blind Project.
