Opening Gala Call for Artists 2011

Calling Performers and Artist

A one night only event launching the 1st Tucson Fringe Festival
Wednesday March 23, 2011 8pm-1am

Submission Deadline: March 12th

The Fringe Festival Opening is an avenue for featuring the “outer edges of fringe.”
We are looking for performance and theatre that is accessible through a gallery/exhibition format as apposed to proscenium.

Pieces may be ambient, installed, traveling, extremely-intimate, endurance based, audience interventions, mixed media, solo or group, etc.

You are encouraged to engage with the unique exhibition space (a magical explorative out-door courtyard that include a small stage; please consider a site visit before submitting a proposal.)

The Festival
In its inaugural year, Tucson Fringe Festival is an uncensored, unjuried theatre festival presenting exciting contemporary performance in Downtown Tucson. With 6 submissions from local and visiting groups the festival line-up is looking amazing!!! (

The Festival Opening is an opportunity for performance artists to express their work as part of the cannon of theatre.  Additionally, participating will vastly enhance the dynamism of this new theatre festival and help to establish experimental performance as part of the Tucson Fringe Festival.
