Centaur Theater Residency ~ Winterworks


Deadline: March 11, 2024
Montreal, Canada

WinterWorks fosters innovation and creativity in the Montreal performing arts community. Providing a dedicated platform for experimentation and artistry that challenges convention, this year’s WinterWorks Festival–previously known as Wildside–is looking to support projects that take artistic risks, ask innovative questions, and explore form. Come and develop the theatrical ambition of your project at Centaur.

Open to applications from established companies and emerging artists alike, Winterworks will select exciting, boundary-pushing performance projects that are already under-development, and looking for support towards their next stage of evolution–leading up to their first encounter with an audience.

Key Information:

● Selected projects will receive a one-week residency period in December 2024, followed by performances in February 2025 during WinterWorks

● Proposals from creators working through all performance disciplines and artistic traditions are encouraged.

● Works will be performed in-person at the Centaur Theatre, but proposals are also welcome to consider alternative or non-traditional settings, such as the Gallery space.

● Projects chosen from this call will receive a guaranteed fee; these fees will be negotiated with the Executive Director depending on the scale of the project and number of performances.

Please note: The work proposed must already have been the subject of prior research and/or must have completed at least one stage of development. Projects must now be ready for the next stage in their evolution: public presentation in February 2025.

Deadline to apply: 11 March 2024
