Marvelous Mammalian Money: Open Call For Ideas / New Works

Mammalian Diving Reflex is desperately seeking Toronto-based artists with participatory performance ideas to develop further. This will take the form of seed-money (up to $2000). While we are aware it's a small amount of money, we will also be offering mentorship, artistic assistance, and the potential to evolve into a larger longer-term residency, and continued development of the artistic idea and relationship with the company.

We are looking for ideas that are thought-provoking, fun, challenging, participatory, experimental, and engage the audience in ways they simply cannot resist. We are especially interested in games, sports, treasure hunts, dinner parties, dance parties, smarties, M&Ms, bacon&eggs and projects that involve 360 video experiences and/or your parents.

Mammalian creates performances by looking for contradictions to whip into aesthetically scintillating experiences. We create site and social-specific performance events, theatre productions, participatory gallery installations, videos, art objects and theoretical texts to foster dialogue and dismantle barriers between individuals of all backgrounds by bringing people together in new and unusual ways. We make ideal entertainment for the end of the world. For more details about our practice please visit

To be considered:
- Submit a project proposal (500-word limit)
- A budget (can be of any amount), but we only have up to $2000 for you...
- A broad timeline,
- Recent artistic CV.

Deadline to submit is end of day September 6th. Shortlisted artists will be asked to come to an in-person chat the week commencing September 16th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Rouvan Silogix, Associate Artistic Producer, at Submissions should be e-mailed to
