TOO SHORT TO SUCK: TOO LITTLE TIME TO DIE
Deadline: February 19, 2016


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Too Short to Suck is an evening dedicated to works-in-progress. The second edition of Too Short to Suck will be held March 11, 2016. This is an evening where people can perform in a low-pressure environment for an encouraging audience and experiment with new ideas.

Requirements:
– performances must be in the categories of puppetry, object theatre, street theatre or circus arts
– 250 word max description of your project
– 100 word bio or you/your group

MOST IMPORTANTLY:
It is the fervent desire of Clay & Paper Theatre to encourage people to abandon propriety, escape the mundane, astonish the innocent, and perplex the sophisticated. With this in mind, shows that are scrappy and have something to say are more exciting to us than polished shows that are vapid. If you have a show that can change the world in under 10 minutes, you’re our kinda creative rabble-rouser!

Please send your questions and/or submissions to Kristi at clay.paper.theatre@gmail.com by February 19, 2016.

Call for Submissions: W.I.P. Night!

On January 15th, 2016, Clay and Paper is hosting a Work-In-Progress Night — an entire evening dedicated to sharing new performances and projects!

This is our invitation to you to perform short, work-in-progress or experimental pieces that fall somewhere within the categories of puppetry and/or street theatre. This evening is intended to be a space where people can bring projects they have been working on, or beginning to work on, and perform in a low-pressure environment for a friendly and encouraging audience. (We are especially interested in works that vibe with the C&P thematic canon, but are welcoming of all.)

This is also an opportunity for us to gather our friends and make good use of our beautiful studio space before it gets torn down to make way for nasty condos. Let’s help 35 Strachan go out with style!

Anyone interested in performing, please e-mail Kristi White at clay.paper.theatre@gmail.com before December 20th with a short description of your proposed performance (max. 250 words).

Please feel free to spread this invitation to folks who may be interested in performing. The time allotted to each performer is 2-10 minutes (in the style of “Too Short to Suck”). We will be charging an admissions fee to non-performing audience members, which will be split amongst performers as payment.
