Women on Top Series, Theatre Festival - Call for Entry

Founded in 2016, the Strand Theater’s Women on Top Seriespresents an annual, curated series of innovative projects by women theatre-makers. The program offers meaningful, project-based support for women artists to develop and present new works that will have a significant impact for the artists and the artistic and broader community in the region, while upholding the Strand Theater’s mission of amplifying women’s voices on stage and off.

The Women on Top Series supports work that has a clear artistic vision. We encourage risk, innovation, complexity of thought and formal exploration, while insisting on integrity and professionalism. We are proud to support women theatre-makers from all communities, who both explore and challenge traditional performance models.

The Series will enable artists to create, complete, or remount a project that will include a public component at the Strand Theater. The public component may take the form of performances, staged readings, or any other type of event that fits with the nature of the project.

The program is open to both emerging and established theatre artists. Collaborative teams, as well as individuals, are encouraged to apply. We invite proposals for the development of new plays, devised works, and other performance pieces.

The Strand’s Women on Top Series offers resources for up to three projects annually, typically scheduled during March, April and May.

Call for proposals opens November 14, 2016
Application Deadline: December 23, 2016, 11:59 PM
