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

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
CRAPSHOOT #3: Call To Action Cabaret
This season’s third iteration of Crapshoot looks to challenge audiences through work that offers a specific call to action. Working under the presumption that enough awareness has been raised, we intend to move forward asking not “what is the problem?” but instead “what can we do about it?”
Art Is Hard invites artists and audience to come together this February for a night of work that challenges, provokes, and inspires. Part rally, part town hall, our next Crapshoot asks artists to submit work that will motivate our community to action; and to answer the question “what next?”
We welcome submissions of short presentations (5-8 minutes); durational work that audiences can visit throughout the night; installations; interventions; interruptions; interactive work; and work that can fit within or without a cabaret format, in any stage of development.
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:
What issues are your addressing through your work? In what ways are you personally impacted by your art? How do you intend to incite action in the audience? How do you feel that presenting at Crapshoot can help you to further develop your work?
