aegean cultural project: call for submissions

Call for submissions: Greek Artists/Greek Themes

A note from the organizer Jay House ~


I’ve been invited to curate a Greek Cultural Festival at Queens Theater in the Park (QTIP), an indoor theater located in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, NY, from January 23-27, 2008.

We are interested in work of any genre - from classical drama to modern dance; from a poetry reading to a film screening; from a children’s puppet show to a nightclub singer!

Work should relate to Greece in one or more of the following ways:

• New or old work by a Greek or Greek-American artist/company;

• “Classics” of Greek origin, by artists of any ethnicity;

• New work dealing with Greek themes by artists of any ethnicity,

QTIP features three stages, a 464 seat proscenium stage theater, a 99 seat black-box theater and (in construction now) a 75-100 seat cabaret space with kitchen/bar. There are larger venues available at LaGuardia Community College (750 seats) and at Queens College (2,000 seats). There is also some workshop and exhibition space available for hand-crafts demonstrations and the like. Add-on workshops (dance, crafts, etc) will also be considered.

How to submit:

Email a one-page document that describes the intent of your piece, how it relates to Greek culture, and your technical requirements. Include a budget on a separate document that shows the cost to mount
your production.

Email submissions to aegeanculturalproject@gmail.com .

Submissions are due by Friday September 21st.

Please contact me if you have questions, and of course, pass this on to artists who may be interested!
