Cooperative Performance call for submissions

web site

Cooperative Performance, an avant-garde theatre/dance collective located in the heart of Milwaukee, is calling for story submissions for ELLIS, to be performed in February 2018 in collaboration with Alverno College.

Directed by Kelly Coffey and Don Russell in collaboration with Alejandra Gonzalez, ELLIS is an original adaptation of your immigration stories from past to present.

ELLIS is a platform for our community to share stories of immigration and cultures. Through this work, Cooperative Performance seeks to humanize and fight ignorance regarding immigration via education and storytelling.

Submissions must involve an interpretation of a personal immigration story, past or present. 

We are interested in all forms of storytelling: text, spoken word, poetry, music (traditional or an original song), visual art, short films, etc. 

Cooperative Performance strongly encourages non-English and bilingual submissions with translation provided. 
 
All works should be no longer than 7 minutes and applicants must be 18 or older. Please include your name, email, and phone number with submission. All submissions may be sent via email to Kelly Coffey at kcoffey@cooperformke.com

*DEADLINE to submit is OCTOBER 31st, 2017*
Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If selected, you grant permission for directors to respectfully edit work for the final performance piece. *Please note that submissions are not compensated if accepted* 

Selected applicants will be notified of their piece's acceptance no later than December 1, 2017.
