HOMO: A Queer Cabaret -Call for submissions

Calling all queer artists, experimenters, performance makers, poetic dreamers, radical doers, boundary-pushers, and artistic collaborators.

This is an open call for artists for Intrepid Theatre’s HOMO: A Queer Cabaret. This multi-disciplinary cabaret will be programmed with diverse samplings of the inspired, kitschy, simple & sweet, avant-garde, eccentric, and fabulous. We have TWO ways to be involved, you can submit for one or both.

1. Cabaret submissions. Have a short (3-7 minute) performance piece that is low-tech and fits this show – tell us about it!

2.NEW!! Collaborations submissions. We want to pair artists (or groups) together to create a short new work as part of HOMO. We want to blend forms, cross disciplines, inspire artists and create new partnerships. If you want to push your artistic practice, want a new challenge, or have an artist crush on someone, this collaboration is for you! Intrepid Theatre will create collaboration pairings from other applications, from your artistic crushes (if they’re interested) or artists we know that would be well suited.

All applications are due October 28th at 5pm. Not all applications will be programmed in this show, or matched with a collaborator. Notifications will be sent via e-mail in early November. 

This is a chance to try out new work, collaborate with new artists, push the form of live performance, or make some wild theatre. All artists programmed will receive an honorarium, a short technical rehearsal in the space, and promotional support from Intrepid Theatre.
