Call for Submissions: Rhubarb 2012 Special Project Calls, Buddies In Bad Times TheatreMOBILE WORKS DEADLINE: 5PM Friday September 2, 2011
Building on the success of last year’s Mobile Works series, which reached over 10,000+ viewers, Rhubarb 2012 invites a new round of proposals for performances that begin elsewhere in the city and converge at Buddies (12 Alexander Street, Toronto). Performance interventions, audio led experiences, performances that intersect public and private space, performances on public transit, flash mobs, etc. that eventually end at Buddies are encouraged. Participatory projects and online performances that are developed in the lead up to Rhubarb and culminate in another form of presentation at Buddies are also welcome.
The proposal should take into consideration not only the festival audiences but also the general public, those unsuspecting and accidental audiences who may stumble upon or intersect with the work.
ONE-TO-ONE PERFORMANCE DEADLINE: 5PM Friday September 2, 2011
New this year! Considering notions of intimacy and personal interaction in performance and everyday life, Rhubarb seeks proposals for short one-to-one works, crafted for one performer and one audience member at a time. Of particular interest are projects investigating sensory experience, contemporary forms of communication, the vulnerability of the body, unique spatial configurations and audience as co-author/ participant.
Only submissions delivered by or post-marked by the deadline dates will be accepted. Works submitted must be new and original. Submissions must be submitted in hard copy only and must be accompanied by the 2012 Rhubarb Festival Application Form (available online at www.buddiesinbadtimes.com) and the $20 non-refundable reading fee (payable to: Buddies in Bad Times Theatre). Fax or email submissions will not be accepted and late submissions will not be considered.
