Opportunities & calls for submissions

Call-out for submissions for a new festival exploring ‘Generation Snowflake’ – the idea, and the reality.

In autumn 2019, Camden People’s Theatre will present a new season of performance interrogating trigger warnings, offence-taking, no-platforming – and the culture of the so-called ‘snowflake’.

The festival will run from October 22 to November 9, 2019. We are now actively seeking theatre projects to be included in this festival.

What we’re looking for:

  • Full-length productions or performances exploring, or relevant to, the festival’s themes
  • New works-in-progress of approx. 20mins in length – to appear on ‘scratch’ platforms as part of the festival
  • Any other performance work that may be relevant to the themes of our festival

What we’re offering:

  • An opportunity to perform in our festival
  • A box-office split of 60/40 in artists’ favour; or a fee to participate in festival ‘scratch’ nights
  • Technical support
  • Comprehensive PR and marketing support
  • Discount tickets to other events in the festival

If you would like to submit an application, please read the call-out information document and apply via the Google Form linked inside.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 22 April at 10am.

LIVE 11

Barrel Organ and Camden People’s Theatre presents LIVE 11, a scratch night taking place at Camden People’s Theatre, for under-represented artists making experimental and non-traditional work that specifically acknowledges the presence of the audience and plays with the ‘liveness’ of theatre.

As a company, Barrel Organ make work that is self-consciously theatrical; plays with the unique ‘liveness’ that theatre offers as an art form; continually seeks to explore and deconstruct the relationship between performer and spectator.

The night is a space for artists currently under-represented in theatre, who are working in/with non-traditional forms to be able to test new material in front of an audience. The aim is to offer a platform and a chance for constructive and beneficial criticism.

We’re looking for bold, experimental and uncompromising work that tackles a wide range of issues, agendas and ideas.

With support from Camden People’s Theatre we are able to offer each artist/company selected a flat fee of £50 for the night for each piece.

The LIVE nights offer the opportunity for emerging, as well as more established, artists and companies to test up to 20 minutes of material in front of an audience.

LIVE 11 will take place on Monday 20th May, 7.30pm at Camden People’s Theatre.

Submissions are now open. Please download the Call for Submissions Info and the Application Form and return them to [email protected] by  Wednesday 1st May, 5pm.
