Call for submissions: Theatre Passe Muraille emerging artist programs

The Theatre Passe Muraille has put out a call for submissions for two programs it has for emerging artists. They are Pitch Andy (formerly known as TPM Pitch Blitz) and the first-ever Elephants in the Room Creation Group.

Elephants in the Room Creation Group

Theatre Passe Muraille is pleased to announce the beginning of a new project for emerging artists. The Elephants in the Room Creation Group is an opportunity to explore creative process working as part of an artist collective. The Creation Group will be comprised of roughly 8-10 members with multidisciplinary backgrounds who will work once a week for three to four months together with no set goal. The focus will be in process and artistic incubation, though there will be a presentation in the TPM Backspace at the end of the experience. The group will have access to facilitation on their own terms.

The group will work Mondays from 6-10pm beginning March 4th until the end of May or early June. It is imperative that all members are able to commit fully to be present at all rehearsals. Please do not submit if you are unable to commit to every Monday evening this project requires. Please note that this opportunity to collaborate with other emerging artists does not have a fee, but it is also non-paying.

Please submit if you:
-Are able to be available for each Monday from 6-10pm from March 4th until mid June.
-Self-identify as an Emerging Artist
-Able to wear many hats or comfortable trying out different areas of theatrical practice (ie: directing, acting, writing, ect.)
-Work well with others, as an ensemble, and are respectful of the taste/diversity or the group

Audition Information:
Please prepare 5 minutes of anything you’d like and show us your work. If you are a writer, you can come in and read us a sample. If you are a stage manager, show us your tool kit! If you are an actor, you could perform a monologue of your choice, etc. Show us who you are, what you’re about, and what you’d like to bring to the group.

Due to timelines, not all candidates will be seen for an audition. If we are not able to give you a time, PLEASE feel free to contact us about other opportunities to get involved at Theatre Passe Muraille (robk@passemuraille.on.ca). All submissions due February 18th, 2013.

Pitch Andy

Theatre Passe Muraille would like to invite artists of all disciplines and backgrounds to come and make a pitch to Artistic Director Andy McKim. Releasing the bounds of a formal audition, Pitch Andy (formerly ‘TPM Pitch Blitz’) is an opportunity for artists to introduce themselves to Theatre Passe Muraille in whatever way best represents them. Pitch Andy gives artists five minutes to showcase themselves or present an idea. Pitch an idea, pitch a show, pitch yourself! We’re on the lookout for exciting new artists to work with and remarkable artistic projects to facilitate, collaborate on, and be inspired by.

Be sure to think outside the box—we are most interested in seeing artists who have something to say beyond “please produce my show”.

Our next Pitch Andy will be held on February 20th and 21st, from 10 am – 3 pm. There are NO other available dates. Please submit only if you are available on those days.
