Crapshoot

We’re Art Is Hard, aka Pip and Rebecca, and we’d like to welcome y’all to our tenancy with Crapshoot! If you’re wondering who we are, you may recognize us from such projects as The People’s Gallery at The Rhubarb Festival, Flip The Table at the Toronto Fringe Festival, or Blanket Fort at The Theatre Centre. Maybe either one of us production managed a show or festival you were a part of. Maybe Rebecca did design work for it. Maybe Pip explained to you what production management even was.

 

Through our curatorship at Crapshoot, we are interested in seeing work that animates spaces while building a sense of community and play. We are also particularly interested in work that explores experiences outside of the conventional theatrical experience. We are interested in considering work from artists of all disciplines: dance, music, performance, installation, visual arts. Work that engages the audience in an active way will also be considered positively. WE’RE SO EXCITED TO MEET YOU ALL! We’re looking forward to a thrilling season of new works and new pal.

 

Yours in production,

Pip & Rebecca

CRAPSHOOT #2: PERFORMANCE | ART BAZAAR

At Theatre Passe Muraille, December 1st 2017, 10pm. PWYC at the door.

 

 

For one night only – Art is Hard will transform Theatre Passe Muraille into a performance + art bazaar: a riotous marketplace of performance and art interventions showcasing work that treads new ground, and breaks boundaries in form and content. Explore every corner of the theatre with artists who are developing new work, and are seeking your feedback. And we want to showcase you.

 

We welcome submissions of short presentations (5-8 minutes); durational work that audiences can visit throughout the night; ambulatory performances; interventions; one-on- one and small-audience engagement pieces; installations; etc. Crapshoot welcomes submissions from all creators; and specifically encourages submissions from artists of colour; queer, non-binary, trans*artists; artists whose lived experience includes with disability; and those who identify as part of marginalized communities.

 

Please consider when submitting: how does the work take advantage of a more fluid audience experience, in which other work is being presented simultaneously and audiences are not necessarily seated or silent? What questions are you hoping to answer by participating? What kind of presentational format will your work take?

 

Application Deadline: Sunday November 5th, 2017 Please submit using the following google form, or send submissions to crapshoot@passemuraille.on.ca
