The Greenhouse Theater Center Seeks Proposals for 2018 Solo Performance Lab

The Greenhouse Theater Center is currently seeking proposals for new solo pieces to be developed during its 2018 Solo Performance Lab. Teams of artists (writer, actor, director) are encouraged submit proposals for plays that focus on an unexamined facet of a historical event or illuminate the life of a little-known historical figure, particularly events and figures which history has forgotten or intentionally excluded.

Curated by GTC Literary Manager Nick Thornton and GTC Artistic Associate Kate Cuellar, the Solo Performance Lab underscores the Greenhouse’s institutional commitment to creating solo works by offering local artists the space and support to develop new solo work. Solo Performance Lab participants will receive institutional resources including rehearsal and performance space, dramaturgical support, casting (if needed) and modest production resources. The Solo Performance Lab will culminate in free public performances at the Greenhouse (2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago) in February and March 2018.

Submission Guidelines
Artists are encouraged to submit a one to three page proposal, artist biographies, a ten page writing sample and an artistic statement through the Greenhouse website at greenhousetheater.org/sololab. The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 8, 2017. Please note: the Solo Performance Lab is open only to artists in the Chicagoland area. For additional information, please e-mail submissions@greenhousetheater.org.

The Solo Performance Lab is part of the Greenhouse's playwright-focused, professional development programming, which also includes The Trellis Residency Initiative, a professional development program for Chicago-area playwrights under 30, and the MC-10 Playwrights Ensemble, a collection of ten of the country’s most sought-after established and mid-career Chicago playwrights and theater-makers now in residence at the Greenhouse.
