Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College


Deadline: February 1, 2022

The arts have always had strong creative connections to the sciences, including computational science. Acting as gadfly for the good, provocateur and satirist when the sciences overreach, but also far-seeing prophets of scientific potential. The arts are among the areas that computational sciences has transformed, not only through its impact on modes of production of artwork, but also as a formative influence on its themes and motivations, notably in the fields of speculative fiction as well as the dramatic arts. To that end, the Neukom Institute is proud to announce this prize for creative work in the arts.

Full-length plays and other full length works for theater addressing the question “What does it mean to be a human in a computerized world?”

Submissions must include
  • An anonymized (blinded) copy of the piece
  • Playwright resume/bio
  • Production history of the piece
  • 1 page statement of purpose that answers the following questions:
  • A. How does your piece address the theme of exploring humanity in our computerized, digital world?
  • B. What are your goals for this piece in its current form?
  • C. The winning piece will receive two readings: one at VoxFest at Dartmouth College in July 2022, and the second at Northern Stage in White River Junction, VT, during the 2022/2023 season. How would you use this two-part development process to achieve these goals?
