Call for Submissions: Rose's Buds

Rose’s Buds is a Digital Cabaret and Talk Show curated by Rose Goodwin showcasing emerging Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-binary, and Gender Non-conforming performers as part of the 2021 Paprika Festival. This show will celebrate different forms of performance and theatre, and create space for conversations about creating performance as a Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-binary, and Gender Non-conforming. 

Artists are being called to submit an idea for a 2-5 minute showcase of their performance art, drag, spoken word, monologues, sketch comedy, music, dance, etc. This could be a one-shot video of a choreographed movement piece or drag performance, a full sketch comedy skit, or a dramatic scene. We will be working with performers to best showcase their talents for a public viewing of the work during the Paprika Festival (June 1-6, 2021). We will also be filming interviews with performers to be featured alongside the cabaret, showcasing performers and the art they are creating!
