GRAVITY: A CABARET of ART and POLITICS

MONDAY MAY 7, 2018, Edmonton

All Edmonton and area artists, of all performance disciplines, ethnicities and genders are invited to submit proposals to contribute original works to GRAVITY: A CABARET of ART and POLITICS to be held on MONDAY MAY 7, 2018 at the Westbury Theatre Edmonton.

After the previous success of GRAVITY, Theatre Yes will join forces with Greenpeace Edmonton and APIRG (Alberta Public Interest Research Group) to create a third ad hoc, one-night-only, cabaret for art that comments on our current times. We invite artists of all experiences and mediums. We invite all intersections and strong opinions. We are looking for short original, audacious, cabaret works: sketches, monologues, stand up comedy, songs, political satire, dance, burlesque, interactive performances, installations, films, hybrid art forms, etc. approximately 10 minutes in length, which fearlessly address one of the many red-hot political issues happening NOW.

We strive to curate an event that represents a wide diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, politic, issue, and artistic practice. Community, non-professional and professional artists are welcome.

Please send a one-page description of what you’d like to do, including your technical requirements, and a short biography outlining your artistic background to info@theatre-yes.ca by March 23rd by 4 PM. *Please note the technical requirements should be simple since our set up and technical time is very limited. Proposals for works created specifically for the event or which fit with the no holds barred fast-moving nature of political cabaret are preferred.

Participating artists will receive a share of the door.

Westbury Theatre at ATB Financial Arts Barns is barrier-free and transit accessible. ASL and visual whispering will be provided.
