banff-centre-logoThe Retreat: February 23 – March 9, 2014
The Colony: April 13 – May 4, 2014
Application deadline: August 28, 2013

The 2014 Banff Playwrights Colony will comprise two components: The Retreat and The Colony. All applicants will be considered for The Colony. The Retreat is available by invitation only.

Eight Canadian writers will be accepted into The Colony, and offered a two-week residency at The Banff Centre. Each writer may invite a collaborator to attend The Colony for up to four days in order to work on their project. For example, that collaborator could be a dramaturg, director, actor, designer, musician, choreographer, or translator, or a non-theatre artist considered essential to the creation process. A company of six actors will be available to read scripts aloud and explore texts, subject to availability. An international writer/dramaturg team selected by The Colony Director will also be in residence to work on a new play and provide their perspective on theatrical creation beyond Canada. The Colony staff will include the Director, the Senior Playwright in Residence, and an Associate Dramaturg.
