Sundance Institute > 2020 Theatre Lab (USA)

Applications are now open for Sundance Institute’s 2020 Theatre Lab. The organisers invite you to bring your current unfinished project – no matter the genre or topic – and get the time and space you need to experiment with it.

Lasting 21 days and held at the Sundance Mountain Resort, the Theatre Lab is an opportunity for artists to focus on unfinished new work: rewriting, reconceiving, and taking risks. Sundance will provide an acting company, a 'day-on, day-off' rehearsal cadence, and rigorous dramaturgical support. They will also underwrite all related expenses at the Lab (from accommodation to meals) so that you can focus on your project.

The 2020 Theatre Lab will run from 6-26 July 2020 and is open to artists from the US and Middle East / North Africa region. The organisers accept applications in English, Arabic, and French.

Full-time fellows are offered:

  • Round-trip plane tickets, with travel for the Lab to/from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Sundance also provides airport transfers in Utah and covers local airport transfers.
  • Lodging and meals for you and the rest of the creative team attached to your project. 
  • A stipend of $1560 USD plus a $60 USD flat payment for local airport transportation.

Deadline: 1 November 2019, at 5.00pm EST.
