Theatremakers of all kinds
The 2020 Theatre Lab welcomes theatremakers from the United States and the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA). Artists in the 21-day lab are selected through an open application process. Up to eight projects will be selected, and projects on any topic and in any genre are eligible, including plays, musicals, dance theatre, performance art, and solo projects. For theatre artists applying from Arabic-speaking countries, projects may be submitted in Arabic, English, or French.
This lab is not a production lab nor a training program, but rather it offers artists a rare opportunity to focus on unfinished new work needing time and space in which to experiment, rewrite, reconceive, and take artistic risks. Sundance Institute will provide an acting company, a “day-on, day-off” rehearsal cadence, and rigorous dramaturgical support (in the language of creation), as well as underwrite all related expenses (including select transportation costs, accommodations, visas, meals, stipends, and support personnel).
If you are applying in French or Arabic, please refer to sundance.org/theatre.
