Call for Artists Description:
Vancouver Opera is seeking submissions from community-based amateur performing groups to appear on the Vancouver Opera Festival Community Stage
Using the theme of Fairytales & Fables as inspiration, we are looking for Community Stage programming that will build connections between our respective audiences through the universal act of storytelling. Through its Community Stage programming, Vancouver Opera wants to create a platform for new, diverse stories to be experienced through theatre, dance, and music (or any other performing art form!). It is also a platform for learning about ourselves and each other through the stories we tell.
ABOUT VANCOUVER OPERA FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY BMO: FAIRYTALES & FABLES
The 3rd annual Vancouver Opera Festival celebrates the myths and stories that captivate our imagination. Fairy tales and fables help us to make sense of our world while promoting the values and life lessons of the culture in which we live. They are deeply rooted in culture and place. Through experiencing the stories of others, we also learn more about world views that differ from our own.
The festival features two mainstage operas – Gounod’s Faust in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and Rossini’s La Cenerentola in the Vancouver Playhouse – over 9 days from April 27 to May 5, 2019, accompanied by special events, speakers, family events, and a variety of family programming.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for groups of people who come together to sing, act, and/or dance. Youth theatre programs, community drama clubs, dance studios, circus schools, community choirs, etc.
ABOUT COMMUNITY STAGE
The Community Stage event will take place on Sunday, April 28 on the šxwƛ̓ exən Xwtl’a7shn (formerly Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza) as part of a full day of programming for families and the community. Performances on the Community Stage will be family friendly with programming appropriate for all ages and audiences. Ideally, performances will also include an interactive component or workshop element that will activate the audience to participate.
The community stage will ideally be set up outdoors (weather permitting), on the plaza space located at 650 Hamilton Street at the corner of Georgia and Hamilton. In the case of rain, the performances/workshops will take place in the Queen Elizabeth theatre lobby.
