Open Call for Submissons
Hosted by SOUND OFF: A Deaf Theatre Festival
Attention Deaf performing artists!
SOUND OFF, Canada’s national festival dedicated to the Deaf performing arts, is announcing an OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS.
In collaboration with Fringe Theatre Adventures, the 6th annual edition of SOUND OFF will take place between March 30th and April 3rd, 2022, in Edmonton, Alberta both live and online.
Our hybrid festival will feature both live and online performances, workshops, panel discussions, staged readings and talk-backs.
We are seeking submissions for both live and online performances. We are also announcing a call for workshop leaders who are interested in hosting peer-led training workshops during the festival. We are also looking for submissions for our staged reading series which presents new works in progress that would benefit from feedback from a live audience.
A limited number of spots are available. Deadline is 11:59 PM (ET) October 17th, 2021. Funding for travel and accommodation is available for participants and professional fees will be paid.
SOUND OFF is committed to diversity and we encourage applications from marginalized communities, including BIPOC and LGBTQ artists, as well as marginalized sign language communities including LSQ, MSL and ISL.
