Call for Proposals: OFFTA Festival

An annual artistic event created on the edge of the Festival TransAmériques (FTA), the OFFTA is a festival dedicated to avant-garde creation in live art. It aims to scout, throughout the year, the local artistic landscape in order to put forward creators whose practice leads new trends in theatre, dance and performance. The OFFTA bases its identity on an artistic direction that encourages strong and singular approaches, emerging practices and experimentation.

The festival offers residencies of research and creation as well as dramaturgic support for several of the selected projects. It gives access to professional means of production and communications to all the artists of the program, and act as a first link between young artists and national and international presenters who are in Montreal at this time of year. With these levers, the OFFTA festival aims to amplify the strong voices of its generation.

The OFFTA team is currently seeking proposals for the programming of its 17th edition, which will be held in late May/early June 2023. The deadline for proposals is November 1.

The call is open to all forms: “atypical projects that don’t fit anywhere”, completed shows, reruns, first stages or creations, laboratories, indoor or outdoor site-specific performances, remote, online and offline performances, conferences etc.

Our call is open to all Canadian projects. However, travel and accommodation costs to Mooniyang/Montreal/Tio’tia:ke cannot be covered by the OFFTA.

Accessibility

The OFFTA affirms its support for historically underrepresented voices and marginalized identities. To foster an inclusive selection process, LA SERRE is available to accompany artists who may face accessibility barriers in submitting their application.
