Accepting Project Proposals

The IGNITE! Festival is accepting project proposals and scripts as part of the performance series, as well as looking for individual emerging theatre and performance artists who can be matched with these proposals.

Deadline to apply is midnight, April 9, 2021.

We are looking for 10-minute original works, either created for the festival or as an excerpt from a longer work. We will pair scripts/project proposals with other applicant directors and designers, and allow for a collective audition process.

IGNITE! is a festival dedicated to supporting, mentoring and presenting early career artists of all disciplines. IGNITE! allows artists to embrace risks in a supportive environment while providing resources, a bridge to the professional arts community, and meaningful opportunities for collaboration and community building with their peers.

Projects by IBPOC artists, artists who identify as living with a disability, LGBQTIA2S+, and artists who identify as being part of a minority are specifically encouraged.

Every year in June, Sage Theatre presents the IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists—a multi-disciplinary, four-day festival of emerging art and artists. It’s big, it’s bold, it’s beautiful! With about 100 artists programmed each year, IGNITE! is a fantastic development, networking, and presentation opportunity for Calgary’s artists.

The 2021 festival runs June 16 to 19, 2021.
