Call for Submissions: IGNITE! 2021

The IGNITE! Festival is accepting project proposals and scripts as part of the Performance Series, as well as looking for individual emerging theatre and performance artists who can be matched with these proposals.

We are looking for 10-minute original works, either created for the festival or as an excerpt from a longer work. We will pair scripts/project proposals with other applicant directors and designers, to allow for a collective audition process.

IGNITE! is a festival dedicated to supporting, mentoring and presenting early career artists of all disciplines. IGNITE! allows artists to embrace risks in a supportive environment while providing resources, a bridge to the professional arts community, and meaningful opportunities for collaboration and community building with their peers.
