IGNITE! 2017 Call for Artists: Interdisciplinary Series

Sage Theatre’s IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists – JUNE 6-10, 2017

The IGNITE! Festival is playing artistic matchmaker! 

We are calling for emerging artists of any discipline (literature & poetry, music, burlesque, theatre, dance, film & animation, visual arts and anything else) who would like to be paired with an artist from a different discipline to create an 8-10 minute new creation that will be performed on the IGNITE! main stage.

We’re working with Loft 112, a creative hive where ideas are given space to develop, a place where established and emerging writers, readers, artists and poets are supported, a place where unheard voices are given a platform and a place of collaboration.  

Paired Artists will receive

  • Performance slot on a main stage with 2-3 public performances
  • Rehearsal space
  • An IGNITE! Festival Artist Pass
  • A small honorarium
  • Professional Mentorship

Who can apply?
The IGNITE! Festival is geared towards emerging artists under the age of 30, working in any discipline, who are pursuing a professional career in the arts.

Interested artists are encouraged to submit

  • A CV (maximum 1 page)
  • An expression of interest (maximum 2 pages). Tell us about yourself, your artistic process of creation, and your interest in the IGNITE! Interdisciplinary Series.
  • Any relevant support material or links (e.g. images, video/web links, writing samples).

Any questions regarding the IGNITE! Interdisciplinary Series should be submitted via email to [email protected]

Deadline: February 12

Applications should be sent to [email protected].

Subject line: Interdisciplinary Series Submission

PLEASE NOTE – While February 12 is our application deadline, we view the submission process as a conversation. The earlier you submit, the better conversation we can have!
