Sundance Theatre Lab (USA) > Open call
This call is open to US & MENA Playwrights, Directors, Composers & Librettists.
After the 2018 Theatre Lab in Morocco, the Theatre Program will return to its homebase in Utah. The 2019 Theatre Lab welcomes theatre artists from the United States and the Middle East & North Africa (MENA). Participants in the 21-Day residency will be selected through an open application process.
For theatre artists applying from Arabic-speaking countries, projects may be submitted in Arabic, English or French. Up to eight projects will be selected, including one project plus one playwright-in-residence from the Middle East & North Africa. Plays on any topic, musicals, dance theatre, performances and solo projects are all eligible.
The Lab is not a production Lab, but offers a rare opportunity to focus on unfinished new work needing time and space in which to experiment, rewrite, re-conceive and take artistic risks. Sundance will provide an acting company (though applicants may suggest specific performers), a “day-on, day-off” rehearsal schedule, and rigorous dramaturgical support (in the language of creation), as well as underwrite all related expenses (including transportation costs, accommodations, visas, meals, stipends and support personnel).
Deadline: 15 November 2018
