We'll be putting up a call for proposals sometime in October for our "HOLIDAAAAY" show
What we’re looking for (when there isn't a pandemic happening):
If you are a creator/performer/artist working in the medium of puppetry and performing objects—someone who does things with stuff on stage—and are looking for a place to informally present your works-in-progress or experimental projects in Toronto, consider applying to one of our seasonal cabarets. We prioritize performances and acts that challenge theatrical norms and our understanding of objects and inanimacy, as well as projects and people telling stories pertinent to, and underrepresented in, today’s political and social climate. Low-tech and short-form pieces fit our cabaret best—performances ranging from 5-15 minutes with minimal setup and tech are preferred. All performers are paid out of ticket sales and provided with a free meal before or during the performance. We look forward to hearing from you!
send us your name, contact info, style of performance, title and brief description (150 words or less) of your proposed act, length (including setup and breakdown time), technical needs, and documentation of your work in the form of images or video (either the proposed piece or other recent work) to concretecabarettoronto at gmail.com or get in touch through the contact page.
If you’d like to be part of our fabulous volunteer team to help on the night of the show, please let us know!
