Upintheair Theatre is requesting project proposals for the Updrafts Collaborative Commission from Canadian emerging or early mid-career playwrights, generative artists, or companies seeking support from an established company in the creation, refinement, and production of a new work of Speculative Fiction. The selected project(s) will receive dramaturgical and workshop support starting in fall of 2020 and a production in Vancouver between Oct/Nov 2021.

Emerging and early-mid career artists living in Canada who consider themselves Collaborative Artists that wish to join us in the creation, development and production of their work or idea. We invite artists of all ages, abilities, cultural practices, ethnicities, socio-economic status, genders, religions, and sexual orientations to apply. We are particularly interested in artists with original, outsider, and/or visionary perspectives on the near future of our society.
