TIMES UP! Showcase 2011
A massive thank you to everyone who attended and sported Showcase Victoria. This year was the 13th Showcase event and was an unqualified success.
Showcase featured live performance excerpts and pitches from 28 production companies featuring 30 tour ready works vying for spots in the 2012 regional touring calendar. Also present were 15 EXPO participants and we had updates from arts2Go, Melbourne Theatre Company, Orchestra Victoria, the Arts Centre, HIT Productions, La Mama, The Melbourne Writers Festival, Theatre Network Victoria, Performing Arts Touring Alliance and Shows for Schools.
For the first time we opened up registration categories for Observers from the broader industry and students who can now attend Showcase to further their own professional development and start to demystify the process that is regional touring.
Volunteer Presenters: 11
Participating Producers: 67
Here’s just a smidgen of the feedback we’ve received from Producers, Presenters, and observers alike:
'A really enjoyable experience!'
‘As our first experience with this kind of networking and sales event for our young company, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learnt a great deal from the experience.
We hope that the connections we made tonight will serve us well going forward, but even if they don't result in a tour this year, we have learnt a lot about how we should target prospective buyers and will definitely be back next round!’
‘Showcase would have to be to best thing for me as a presenter to have ever happened. To view in a short period of time some of our most talented and diverse collection of performers, is a brilliant concept. Thank you, as a presenter from 'the provinces' its difficult time wise and costly for me to travel to the CBD to check shows’
Thanks again for everyone who attended Showcase Victoria 2011. See you next year!
