REMOTE PERFORMANCE PROJECTS: A CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Proposal Submission deadline: Monday January 11
**As of today's date (12/14/20), the Hopkins Center building remains essentially closed. Students may submit winter term performance proposals that include some kind of limited in-person component, on the understanding that the department may not be able to support the in-person aspects of the proposal. We will be evaulating proposals containing in-person components on a case-by-case basis in order to determine their feasibility in light of Hop building policies and campus-wide gathering restrictions. Please note that any changes to this plan will be announced on this webpage, so please check back regularly for updated information.**
The Department of Theater is seeking winter 2021 term remote student production project proposals focused on the creation of remote performance work. Examples of this type of work might include:
- The development and performance of solo, site-specific performance projects, especially outdoors
- Staged readings, performed via Zoom
- The creation and recorded performance of a radio play
- A video/spoken word archive documenting responses to current events
A sampling of recent remote student production projects can be found HERE.
Where applicable and appropriate, these types of projects may benefit from faculty mentorship and/or limited financial support (maximum of $100, along the lines of a typical department Studio Lab project). Depending on the circumstances, students undertaking remote projects may be eligible to receive production credit for their work.
Students interested in proposing a remote performance project for the winter 2021 term should submit an application to the department by Monday January 11 at 9:00 pm; proposals should be emailed to Milena Zuccotti, and should include the following information:
- Proposal description
- Proposed artistic collaborators
- A vision of how the department could best support your project
Please note that in this remote environment, it is not necessary to submit a proposal specifically tailored to fit one of the department's typical student production categories (YourSpace, Studio Lab, Full Productions); just send us your idea, whatever it is. Also keep in mind that it is NOT necessary to be enrolled in winter term classes in order to submit a project proposal!
Questions may be directed to the Director of Theater Jamie Horton.
