ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Since we can't gather to see extraordinary solo performances, we have created AFO Solo Shorts to bring extraordinary solo performances to you.
All For One Theater is currently accepting submissions for new, short solo work that can be created digitally by the artist.
Do you have an idea for a short solo art piece? Pitch it to us!
We typically work with solo theater makers but we're happy to consider artists from all disciplines: designers, painters, sculptors, dancers, puppeteers... anyone with a creative mind!
We want any and all solo ideas that are three minutes in length or less.
Fascinate us, enchant us, rip us out of the non-stop headlines, home-schooling, and day-to-day terrors. Scare us, titillate us, give us something to smile about! Whatever you want to bring, remember that AFO’s mission is to produce and develop extraordinary solo theater.
Whenever we are considering a project, the first thing we ask is: is it extraordinary?
Projects will be developed and curated for showing, by the AFO staff.
We will select pieces that represent the breadth and scope of what solo work can be. AFO looks for projects that expand the form of solo theater, amplify underrepresented voices, and find the universal in the individual. AFO will work with the selected Artists dramaturgically, creatively, and assist as best we can in the Artist's filming of the project.
AFO will only consider submissions of new, solo pieces.
Pieces must be no longer than three minutes.
Projects may be in any stage of development: an idea, a sketch, a fully written script, etc.
Projects must not have appeared digitally anywhere else prior to submission.
Any piece that is chosen will receive a $250 project stipend.
If you choose to collaborate with others on your project, compensating them will be up to you.
All work will be shared publicly on AFO's social media and will live on our website in perpetuity.
The work will be hosted exclusively by AFO for two months.
Submissions are due by 5:00pm EDT on August 31, 2020. Artists will be notified by September 14, 2020.
*Any artist who had work accepted in the pervious round of AFO SOLO SHORTS, will not be eligible for this round.*
