Call for Submissions: Day of Delight

Call for Submissions: Day of Delight

Sunday, June 17th, 2012 will mark Clay & Paper Theatre’s 10th annual Day of Delight in Toronto’s beautiful Dufferin Grove Park. This special tenth anniversary celebration of love, courtship and desire will highlight our most deeply-rooted devotions, perennial of passions and long-lasting loves.

We are seeking collaborators of all artistic disciplines to contribute works that respond to Day of Delight’s themes of Love, Courtship and Desire. Works of all artistic disciplines are encouraged. This includes theatre, music, dance, spectacle, poetry, performance art, installation, puppetry, participatory works... we dare you to surprise us!

Offerings can be large or small, new or old – but must be suitable for outdoor space and respond to the themes of love, courtship and desire. We have found that works of about 15 minutes in length seem to work best, whereas dialogue-driven works of a realistic nature seem to work the least. A modest honorarium will be offered to all participating individuals or groups. Please note that you are responsible for providing all requirements for your production, ie: cast, director, set pieces, etc., although we will provide whatever support we can.

BYOA (Bring your own Accessibility): Clay & Paper Theatre encourages applications that integrate accessibility solutions into the performance, such as someone performing in American Sign Language, featuring a wheelchair performer, or including integrated descriptive dialogue to increase accessibility for the blind or visually impaired. Use your imagination and BYOA!

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Tuesday, April 10th, 2012 at 5 PM.

A 250-500 word proposal outlining the project and its connection with Day of Delight's theme, as well as a list of technical requirements, if applicable.
A script (if applicable)
Artist Statement (optional)
CV’s for participating artists
Support Material: A maximum of 10 images, 2 videos, and/or audio files (videos via link, CD or DVD)
