Industry Listing, Submission.

Deadline to submit: Friday, February 1st at 11:59PM

Nightwood Theatre's Young Innovators are searching for performers who are women and/or gender-marginalized (i.e. cis and trans artists, non-binary/genderfluid folx & persons of indigenous gender) to take part in our upcoming Fempocalypse cabaret, in celebration of International Women's Day. Fempocalypse is an annual fundraiser cabaret produced by Nightwood's Young Innovators Unit.

This year, we are looking for performances that celebrate the resiliency within us all. All proceeds generated from this event will benefit the Assaulted Women’s Helpline. As this is a fundraiser, we are asking that performers participate on a volunteer basis.

The Assaulted Women’s Helpline offers a 24-hour telephone and TTY crisis line to all women who have experienced abuse. They provide counselling, emotional support, information and referrals. They recognize abuse as one example of women’s social, political and economic inequality in the world. The Helpline is dedicated to working towards equality for all women.
