What is Stripped Bare?
Stripped Bare is Synchronicity Theatre’s arts incubator project. Created from a desire to use our theatre space to make a home for new theatrical works, and a place for artists to flex their wings, Stripped Bare is an incubator to test-drive new ideas.

Stripped Bare is so named because this is about theatre at its core. While we value all of the artistry that stage design brings to full productions, a Stripped Bare project is not about sets, lights, props, costumes. It is about actors, words, passion, movement and ideas.

Have a great project in mind and just need somewhere to get it off the ground? Consider applying for Stripped Bare, an arts incubator project for innovative projects by emerging artists.
Synchronicity is here to support you.
Our hope is that together we can grow this project with members of the community. Thanks for taking this journey with us!

A Stripped Bare project:

• Is on its feet

• Plays with form

• Experiments with an artistic idea

• Pushes personal artistic boundaries

• Re-imagines classics

• Creates brand new work

• Is driven by the art

It is not:

Music stands – These are not staged readings.

It is not a full production – Seriously. So that means, there is no…

Set – There is no rigging, no flats, no repainting of the space, no changing of the curtain placements;

Lights – You can use our rep plot, but there is no re-focusing. We encourage you to think SIMPLY if you do any cuing;

Sound – You can have a few sound cues, but no mics;

Projector – If you need to use the projector, there will be an added fee for the technician and projector usage. Guess what? We recommend finding a low-tech, simple answer instead;

Props – You are welcome to bring in and use simple furniture or props.

Coming soon...
