Downstage is now seeking submissions for programming the 2013-2014 season in Motel, a flexible 50-seat black-box performance venue located in the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts, and Birds & Stone, a black box space used for rehearsals or intimate performances on 16th Avenue and 1st Street NW in the basement of the Unitarian Church of Calgary.
Emerging and established artists and performing arts companies working in all disciplines who are interested in showcasing their work in Motel or rehearsing / performing in Birds & Stone are invited to submit proposals for consideration. Unfortunately, as demand for the venues generally exceeds the time available, we will not necessarily be able to program all submissions.
Upon the successful scheduling of a proposal, artists/companies will be contacted to arrange more specific details of the tenancy. A venue usage fee is applicable, the weekly rate for performances in Motel is $600 plus GST and applicable ticket fees, and the rates for Birds & Stone are $400/week for performances or $250/week for rehearsals (all inclusive). Please contact Downstage Venue Manager Tuled Giovanazzi at [email protected] or 403.294.7459 for additional details after reviewing the attached call for submissions.
