The Application is a documentary following Gina Moxley and Luca Truffarelli making an application about freelance theatre artists experiences of endlessly making applications and precious little work during lockdown. With venues closed artists’ were orphaned, without an income, a community or a home. Everyone was applying for everything—to keep a log in the grate, the wolf from the door. We invited six artists to film their response to making bloody applications: the emotional investment, the unrealised plans, the hope, the absolute despair. Their responses are extraordinarily tender, surprisingly hopeful, and hilarious. This a portrait of what it takes to make a thing, to stay alive—the stuff we never see.
