Festival dates: Sept 26 – 29, 2019
Edmonton

Physical performers, clowns, and comedic character actors are invited to apply to Play the Fool Festival, Edmonton’s festival of clown and physical comedy. Held in historic Old Strathcona at the ATB Financial Arts Barns, the festival we bring together seasoned and emerging local, national, and international clown and physical theatre artists for four days of performances that embrace risk, exploration, and play. We encourage applications from both established and emerging theatre artists, and artists with diverse identities, and cultural backgrounds.

This year, we are looking for short works from established and emerging artists for our double & triple bill series, length of 15-25 minutes. All forms and styles of clowning and physical comedy are encouraged to apply – red nose, mask, dance comedy, bouffon, character pieces, comedy burlesque, drag, acrobatics, slapstick, puppetry, etc.

Past festivals have served as a scouting ground for Cirque de Soleil, and have featured performances by: Deanna Fleysher (Butt Kapinski); Michael Kennard (Mump & Smoot); Candy R. Roberts; Iman Lizarazu; Jed Tomlinson & Jacqueline Russell (Sizzle & Spark); Pratik Motwani, James Peck & Sarah Peters (Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre); Amelia Van Brunt, Adam Keefe, Christine Lesiak, Allan Turner (Mullet), Chris Ross & Travis Bernhardt, Aytahn Ross, The Grand Salto Theatre, and dozens of other professional and emerging performers.
