NEXTFEST 2013: Call For Theatre Proposals
To Young & Emerging theatre artists,
Nextfest will begin receiving theatre submissions Monday, December 3, 2012. Intake of submissions will be ongoing. There is no end-date for consideration, but proposals received earlier will have greater opportunity for consideration and dialogue. There is neither application form nor application fee. We will entertain proposals from producers, playwrights, directors, actors, designers, multi-disciplinary artists, etc. Submissions do not have to be attached to a specific creative project: resumes are welcome.
If you are proposing a specific creative project: we ask for a developmental history of the proposed work, a personal assessment of its current state, and a proposed direction for its development. Address your intention, your proposed process, the resources you have (e.g.: personnel, partners, space), the resources you don’t have (e.g. personnel, partners, space), and what it is you want/need from Nextfest. Script submissions should be unbound, single-sided, paginated, and include a title page with contact information.
Nextfest 2013 is a multi-disciplinary arts festival for emerging artists that will be presented in Edmonton, June 6 -16, as the culminating event of Theatre Network’s season. Nextfest’s target is a demographic of emerging artists under the age of 30, whom have made personal commitments to a career in the arts, are not yet recognized with professional associations, and are in need of professional development and exposure.
Submissions may be delivered to:
The Nextfest Arts Company
