Paprika Festival Call for Submissions

September 3rd, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

The Paprika Festival is now accepting submissions for the EIGHTH ANNUAL PAPRIKA FESTIVAL, a two-week festival of original short works created by artists under 21. One of its kind in Canada, this festival gives young artists - playwrights, directors, actors, designers, composers, video artists, songwriters and stage managers - the opportunity to develop their own work with a professional artist mentor and then showcase it in a two week festival at Tarragon Theatre in March 2009.

We encourage submissions from young artists of all levels of experience.

There are three streams this year! 1. PRODUCTIONS You provide the script and the team - director, actors, stage manager - and we give you the chance to work closely with a professional artist mentor and perform in the studios at Tarragon Theatre. EMAIL or MAIL us an application form, script and project description.

  1. CREATOR’S UNIT Do you write stories, poems, songs or scripts? Do you compose music, take photos, make films, perform on the street or in the theatre? Do you sing, dance, paint or create installation art? Apply to the Creator’s Unit where you’ll get a chance work with professional artists and meet, collaborate, and develop your work with other young artists. EMAIL or MAIL in a sample of your work and tell us a bit about yourself and why you want to be part of the Paprika Festival.

  2. BACKSTAGE: DESIGNER’S AND PRODUCER’S UNIT Do you like getting your hands dirty and making things happen? Do you want to design costumes, set, lighting, sound or graphics? Apply to this unit and work with professional theatre artists to design, produce or work backstage. EMAIL or MAIL us a sample of your work (if you’re a designer) and tell us a bit about yourself and why you want to be part of the Paprika Festival.

All application forms are available here.
