International Human Rights Art Festival Ten-Minute Play Festival 2023


Deadline: October 1, 2023

Full information about the call and Festival HERE

12 plays will be selected to be presented during the 5th Annual International Human Rights Art Festival

December 4th - 10th, 2023

The Tank
312 W 36th St., New York, NY 10018

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF.ORG), NYC’s pre-eminent arts and human rights performance event, and The Tank Theater issue a call for proposals for its ten-minute play festival (scripts no longer than 10-pages, double-spaced, 12 point Times Roman font) as part of the International Human Rights Art Festival this winter.

The Festival will take place in The Tank’s 98-seat main stage.

We are looking for self-produced pieces which are built around a social concern. We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability, engagement and celebrating diversity; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.

Selected plays will receive two hours of free rehearsal space at ART-NY (520 8th Ave.); a 30-minute tech rehearsal, full tech support, PR and marketing, and free photography documentation as part of the festival. There is no fee to apply, and a production stipend of $100 per selected play will be paid.

Please send the script, links, resume and any other information which might be of help in our decision to Festival Assistant Producer Costanza Bugiani: costanza@ihraf.org, with the subject line: "IHRAF 10-minutePlay Festival Submission"

Deadline is October 1, 2023. Final decisions will be made by October 15, 2023.

The International Human Rights Art Festival has produced more than 100 events featuring more than 1000 artists since its inception in March 2017, at Dixon Place (NY). It has been covered in more than 30 media outlets (including the New York Times, NBC, Fox5, AM-NY, Metro-NY, Huffington Post, The Dramatist and many others); has worked with politicians and performers such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senator Charles Schumer, Congressman John Lewis (deceased), Kathleen Turner, Barbra Streisand and many more.

Founded in 2003, The Tank champions emerging artists engaged in the pursuit of new ideas and forms of expression working across all disciplines, including theater, comedy, dance, film, music, puppetry, and storytelling.
