The company behind the immersive re-imaginings of Mr. Marmalade, Terminus, Passion Play, and Mr. Burns launches a unique new works initiative.
Outside the March is seeking submissions from playwrights and creators across the country interested in working with the company to develop original, large-scale immersive experiences. OtM will fund the development of three new pieces of immersive theatre through the inaugural FORWARD MARCH program, an initiative that Artistic Director Mitchell Cushman describes as “the incubator of OtM’s future creative identity”.
FORWARD MARCH will provide a $5000 commissioning fee to each of three selected playwrights. Throughout our ‘15/’16 season, each writer will work with the company to create a ‘first draft’ of a new immersive show. Each participating writer will work in close collaboration with a “Co-Conspirator” hired by OtM—an artist who will occupy the role of ‘director/dramaturge’ for these works in development. A design dramaturge will also work closely with each project. The program will culminate in the summer of 2016 with a triple-barreled public presentation, occurring in three different site-specific locations around Toronto.
To see submission guidelines and a more detailed description of the Forward March Call for Submissions, please visit the Outside The March website: www.outsidethemarch.ca. Deadline to Submit is October 9th.
