CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are pleased to announce a call for submissions for our 31st annual STAGES Theatre Festival as well as our third-ever EARLY Stages Festival! Current outside dates for the festival are February 14th to 17th and June 5th to 9th 2024, in and around Alderney Landing in Downtown Dartmouth/Punamu’kwati’jk, Nova Scotia/Mi'kma'ki. 

 

​STAGES aims to present accessible, innovative and entertaining shows at different stages of development by artists at different stages of their careers. We are looking for productions aimed at both mature and youth audiences, with a maximum running time of 75 minutes, short turnaround times and/or minimal setup and teardown. We will consider traditional theatre productions and site-specific pieces, and are particularly interested in installation pieces and non-traditional theatrical experiences. EARLY STAGES highlights the creative process behind new works with play readings and work-in-progress showings.

 

Preference will be given to shows that are created by Atlantic Canadian artists or tell Atlantic Canadian stories, but we welcome submissions from across Canada and the rest of the world. We are especially keen to support artists and stories from communities that are currently underrepresented in Canadian theatre (including but not limited to IBPOC and Deaf and disabled artists). If you are a member of an underrepresented community, we invite you to self-identify in your application.

 

Proposals will be accepted via Google Form until October 10th 2023. 

 

If you require assistance with any part of your application, please email Kat@EasternFrontTheatre.com
