Collaboraction is seeking submissions of short plays, devised theatre, dance, spoken word and performance from throughout the Chicagoland area for our upcoming youth festival, THE LIGHT. We are looking for young people, under the age of 21, to submit work that not only exposes the talent and power of Chicago’s young artists, but also uses the festival as a platform for art as activism. Pieces must be 5 minutes (minimum) to 7 minutes (maximum) in length. All work must be original. Selected pieces receive full production and design support and stipends for artists.
With THE LIGHT Youth Festival we will provide a safe space where young artists can showcase performances and art that has a message and purpose with a focus on bold creativity, authentic voice and social justice.
July 11th - 14th 2019, with tour dates TBD
at the Pentagon Theatre for Social Justice
at Collaboraction Studios - 1579 North Milwaukee Ave in Chicago
Submission Deadline: January 31st, 2019
Pieces will be selected and awarded festival slots by March 2019.
