Industry Listing, Submission.

Deadline: Friday, May 15th, 11:59 PM EST


Outside the March (OtM) Theatre is thrilled to launch the second incarnation of our Forward March new work commissioning stream, the TD FORWARD MARCH PROGRAM. With the support of TD Bank Group we’re seeking submissions from playwrights and creators across the country who want to develop original immersive experiences.

Artistic Director Mitchell Cushman describes the TD FORWARD MARCH PROGRAM as “the incubator of OtM’s future creative identity.” “As the world grapples with the uncertainty and precarity of the global pandemic, the need for human connection and communal experiences has never been greater,” he says. “During this time of crisis, and with the support of our partners at TD, OtM is committed to developing the next generation of immersive theatre artists and projects - so that when audiences are ready to congregate again, we will be there to entertain, challenge and immerse them.”

FORWARD MARCH will provide a $5000 commissioning fee to each selected creator. Throughout our ‘20/’21 season, each creator will work with the company to create a new immersive show. Each participating creator will work in close collaboration with a “Co-Conspirator” hired by OtM. The program will culminate in the summer of 2021 with a public presentation, occurring in different site-specific locations around Toronto.

Deadline to Submit: Friday, May 15th, 11:59 PM EST
