Call for Applications: OUTstages Festival

Hosted by Intrepid Theatre Company

OUTstages Theatre Festival, Intrepid Theatre’s newest festival, is a celebration of theatre, of queer culture, and of possibilities. It brings together fearless queer artists and stories with eager audiences from this diverse island and abroad, seeking to be engaged, challenged and shown one hell of a good time at the theatre. This live, in-person festival takes place on Lekwungen Territory in downtown Victoria, BC. Read below for details on what the application processes have looked like in past years for reference.

OUTstages is a curated festival of live in person performance. Some shows are invited directly, but we also accept productions through the open application process outlined below. We are interested only in recently performed, finished work, 45-90 minutes in length.

We are looking for fully-produced shows, which are relatively “light” in their production requirements and can be performed in a tight festival repertory schedule (shows with big set installations or extraordinary technical needs may not be possible), and which have video documentation available that can be considered by the jury. International applications are welcome.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Nov 3, 2021 at midnight PST
