Call for Performance Art
Music, Drama, Oratory, Comedy
Performances will be delivered on the outdoor stage in front of the Stage House in the Alexandra Neighbourhood House campus between 11:00am and 12:45pm on Saturday, May 26th, 2018, during the peak of the 44th Annual AlexFest event.
Performances for this first event will be limited to 20-25 minutes apiece, including setup and teardown, and costuming/makeup space is sharply limited.
Performances are expected to highlight or support one or more of the themes of the AFAC project, and the challenge is to convey both the theme and the performance in a fashion that sweeps the audience into engagement despite a paucity of props and supports: the performance is the primary memory that viewers will take away with them.
For photo, audio or video files, please provide links to their online platforms as requested in your submission form – our web hosting server does not have available storage space for multiple files of these sizes at the current time.
Submit your performance proposal via our online form.
For more information or to discuss your idea, send an email to ‘Art Exhibition Team’ at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not include your name and contact information on any visible part of your submission if at all possible, as that will disqualify it from entering general selection processes and place it in the alternative process for consideration by the project team as a special sub-project.
We understand that jurying anonymity may effectively be observed in some types of artistic mediums more easily than in others. For graphic, audio and video files, selection anonymity may not be as easily achieved as is the case, for example, in literary works. Painters often sign their paintings and drawings, and a singer may herself be featured in her music video; videos may contain other distinguishing marks within them. Such submissions as these will be curated in the alternative process for consideration by the project team as a special sub-project.
