MONTREAL, November 8th, 2018. Revolution They Wrote and MainLine Theatre are proud to present the fifth annual Short Works Feminist Theatre Festival, a 4-day event which showcases new short works of feminist performance and art. The goal is to create a space for feminist artists of all backgrounds to gather, develop, and produce short works that explore themes of intersectional feminism.
What does feminist theatre and performance mean? We are open to any style or approach, however, for a work to be considered feminist it needs to centre on equality and the intersections of gendered oppression.
There is no cost involved with applying or being produced in the festival.
Jurying takes place in late December and applicants, wether selected to be featured in the festival or not will be notified shortly after. Some feedback may be given to groups not selected upon request.
Dates for the festival are March 22-24, 2019.
Artists featured in the festival will be provided with:
- Access to 10 hours of rehearsal space at MainLine Theatre;
- Additional rehearsal space on a case by case basis;
- A public reading or 4 nights of performance of the work at the festival;
- 60% of the box office funds shared evenly between the other festival works in the program.
