CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
SUMMERWORKS PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL 2019

Artists, dreamers, innovators and change makers: we want to work with you.

SummerWorks is a curated festival widely recognized as one of the most vital platforms for launching new performance—locally, nationally and internationally. We are interested in continuously reimaging and innovating the possibilities for performance- how it is created, presented and experienced. SummerWorks is a place for you to explore new territory, to take up space, be heard and take creative risks. We are currently seeking proposals for our 29th edition, taking place August 8th-18th in Toronto, Canada. Proposals are encouraged from creators working across all disciplines and artistic traditions. You may apply with more than one project, and more than one category.

SUMMERWORKS PRESENTATIONS CALL*
DEADLINE: Monday, December 10th, 11:59pm EST
SummerWorks seeks proposals for new and experimental performance projects that will be ready for presentation in August 2019. The SummerWorks Presentation stream offers artists a chance to share their finished work with a wider audience and to provide a platform for work to reach even greater success in the future. Proposals are encouraged from both established and emerging artists working in the areas of contemporary theatre, dance, music, live art, interdisciplinary art, and hybrid forms. Works for theatre, gallery, bar, outdoor, site-specific and immersive settings are welcome. Proposed works may have previous workshop development or presentation history. Of particular interest are projects, approaches and ideas that are new territory for the artist and/or the medium.

SUMMERWORKS LAB CALL*
DEADLINE: Monday, December 10th, 11:59pm EST
The SummerWorks Lab is a place for exploration, experimentation and process. We want to support new works in development and forge connections between artists and audiences. SummerWorks invites proposals for performance projects to be shared with an audience at crucial stage of development as well as performance experiments that seek to use the platform of the Festival as a laboratory to incubate and test new ideas. Of particular interest are projects that will benefit from audience engagement and feedback, with the potential of this to inform the future of the work.

SPECIAL PROJECT CALL: PUBLIC WORKS*
DEADLINE: Monday, December 10th, 11:59pm EST
What makes public space and what is the power of the public to make change? For 2019, SummerWorks invites artists and makers of all disciplines to propose projects that consider new possibilities for the public sphere. How do we create new realities together? What could be uncovered, reimagined or reclaimed? Of particular interest are projects that engage with the landscape of the city or experiment with unconventional performance settings—including, but not limited to: sidewalks and streetcars, libraries and parks, VR and online platforms.

*All project applications received will also be considered for participation in the SummerWorks Exchange, our industry activities during the Festival, including pitch sessions and open studio showings for guest presenters.

The Festival application process is online. For access to the application portal, key information and guidelines, please visit http://summerworks.ca/call-submissions-2019/
