Call for Guerrilla Theatre proposals

Canada’s Magnetic North Theatre Festival is seeking proposals to fill two (2) final Guerrilla theatre performance spots. We’re looking for theatre artists interested in creating short (5-10 mins) Guerrilla Theatre and/or live Performance pieces which can be performed in various locations in and around Ottawa – on the streets, on buses, in shopping malls, or other places people gather.

We want your proposals to create “stages” in unexpected places, or art actions that animate public spaces to encourage public engagement. We’re also interested in projects that are connected to the Festival’s 2015 theme of Radical Lessons for a Meaningful Life.

There are two (2) categories available:

  • Four applicants will be chosen to perform 7 times during the Festival from June 4-13;
  • Four applicants will be chosen to perform ONLY ONCE at the Verso La Fiamma pre-show event on Sunday, Jun 7 between 7:30 and 9:30pm.

Successful applicants will be given $125 for each performance of their piece. Applications are open to all professional and/or emerging theatre/performance artists. Successful applicants must be in Ottawa during the applicable dates (accommodation and transportation not provided).

Please complete the online application found below, or download and complete the attached PDF application form.

Deadline for proposals has been extended until April 27, 2015 at 4pm EST. Apply today as there are only two spots remaining! Successful applicants will be contacted by May 1st.
