NoMads Art Collective

Playwrights and Directors

Category: Jobs
Pay: No Pay

NoMads Art Collective is seeking playwrights and directors for our inaugural 10-minute play laboratory: Sparks.

This year's theme is "taboo." What conversations make people uncomfortable? What kinds of theatre push beyond the limited "fourth wall" mentality? What have you always wanted to explore in your work that might seem socially unacceptable? We are interested in plays that experiment with taboo in either content or form (or both!).

Through the selection of plays and directors, the NoMads team will match up directors and playwrights. Both directors and playwrights should plan on attending all three (3) performances.

Playwrights should note that plays with more than 5 characters cannot be accepted at this time.

Directors should note that NoMads will provide limited technical (including lights and sound) and scenic support. Directors will be responsible for planning their own rehearsals and finding rehearsal spaces. NoMads will be hosting an open audition for Sparks after the play selection has been announced.

Sparks runs from October 21st - 23rd, 2019 at The Frontier.

Submissions for Sparks close August 31 at 11:59PM.
