2018 Call for Submissions – undercurrents

by Kimberly McCarthy-Kearney

April 18, 2017

undercurrents is Ottawa’s festival of contemporary theatre, produced by the Ottawa Fringe Festival and taking place at Arts Court Theatre and Studio from February 7-17, 2018.

Showcasing the best independent theatre from Ottawa and across the country, undercurrents invites submissions from Ottawa-based and national companies. The festival will consider applications from established and emerging artists who are working in new play creation, as well as from those touring previously produced original work. We encourage submissions from artists experimenting in form, style, and creation process.

Participating productions will receive four performances in rep, within a shared venue environment (i.e. a shared lighting plot with show-specific specials, shared dressing room space, limited tech time and storage space).  Productions should be 50-80 minutes in length, and must be able to set up and strike in less than 30 minutes.

We are also seeking submissions from artists who have have short pieces (under 30 minutes), works-in-progress, or live art/installation pieces to be programmed in the Arts Court Studio as part of our Late Night Series.

Companies and artists who wish to have their production considered for undercurrents 2018 are invited to submit the following materials no later than Friday June 30, 2017 at 5:00 pm.

  1. A proposal describing the project and its history (maximum three pages)
  2. A list of participating artists and biographies/CVs of lead artists
  3. Detailed technical specifications for the production
  4. A script sample or completed script
  5. An archival or promotional recording of the proposed play (if available)
  6. Additional support material: reviews, photos, or letters of support (optional)

Applications will be accepted in electronic format only. Applicants are asked to send all written materials in a single PDF file, and provide links to video-sharing sites where archival or promotional recordings of the proposed work can be viewed.

Questions regarding the festival or the application process can be directed to Patrick Gauthier, Festival Director, at [email protected]; or by phone: 613.232.6162 x101.

More information on the undercurrents festival can be found online at: undercurrentsfestival.ca.

Instead artists throw their names into a lottery and the winners score a festival venue, technician, box office services, and front-of-house volunteers. More artists add to the program with Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) shows and all performers keep 100% of their ticket sales.

N.B. Bring Your Own Venue applications will open in the new year. Check back soon for more information or subscribe for an email heads up (tick the “performing opportunities” box).
