Got an eight-to-10-minute theatre piece brewing that you’d like to present for live audiences?
Theatre SKAM has extended its deadline for submissions of interest for SKAMpede 2020 and is accepting them up to Dec. 31. Submissions can be made by Canadian performing arts companies and individual artists, for new works to be performed outdoors in Victoria on July 11-12, with preview events July 9-10.
Heading into its 12th season, this live performance event features original short performances by artists stationed along the Galloping Goose Regional Trail and the Songhees Pathway, as well as the David Foster Walkway in the downtown core.
Each year artists are encouraged to gain inspiration from the spaces of downtown Victoria and create unique, multi-disciplinary performances. The format sees audience members ride their bikes, walk, skateboard, rollerblade or scooter from show to show along the route.
Artists and companies looking to their share their comedy, drama, storytelling, spoken word, improv, music, opera, puppetry or dance with local audiences are asked to complete an online application here. Applicants new to SKAMpede are asked to contact artistic producer Matthew Payne at 250-386-7526 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss their project.
