The Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company in partnership with Artists in Residence is proud to announce the launch of 'The Barlin-Daniels Emerging Artists Initiative,' a new endeavour to support, nourish and encourage the development of a new generation of theatre artists. This initiative will explore and amplify a diverse array of Jewish stories and perspectives, and present theatre that is thoughtful, inclusive, and reflective of the modern Jewish experience.
'The Barlin-Daniels Emerging Artists Initiative' will present its inaugural event on May 19th, 2021 with a live online broadcast of Unravel: A Virtual Monologue Slam Competition, featuring 10 original monologues written and performed by young Canadian artists on the topic of ‘Jewish Identity.’ Exploring the themes of self-reflection, faith, and history, Unravel takes its title from the rich tapestry of Jewish culture, composed of individual threads of experience. As we unweave, unwind, and unravel, we discover the diverse perspectives of our shared Jewish story.
Canadian artists ages 15-30 are invited to submit their original work. Monologues should be between 2-3 minutes when performed. Submissions will be accepted until April 22nd, 2021 at 11:59 pm. The 10 finalists will be announced on April 26th, 2021. Artists of all ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and religious affiliations are encouraged to submit.
After a nationwide open-call, 10 individuals will be selected to workshop their writing and performances with industry professionals prior to performing their pieces for the May 19th broadcast. A panel of special guest judges (TBA) will select the top three finalists. The winner, determined by audience vote, will be announced live on May 26th, 2021. The top three finalists will be awarded a cash prize.
