Call for Submissions (Edmonton): Crossed Wires Cabaret Project


Crossed Wires Cabaret

Amoris Projects and Edmonton Fringe Theatre are seeking four artists or teams of artistic collaborators to explore a big idea to connect live and virtual audiences through a 5-10 minute performance piece supported by our mentorship and technical resources.

Selected artists/teams will receive:

  • A $1500 project fee
  • Access to a small discretionary budget for supplies
  • Access to streaming, technical, and production mentorship/resources from the Fringe and Amoris
  • Projects teams
  • One tech rehearsal between November 24-26 with technician support in the Westbury Theatre
  • One dress rehearsal, and one performance at the Crossed Wires Cabaret

Applications will be reviewed by the following:

  • Mac Brock, Producer (Amoris Projects)
  • Linda Mullen, Event Coordinator (Amoris Projects)
  • Bradley King, Livestream Coordinator (Amoris Projects)
  • Beth Dart, Collaborating Artist (Amoris Projects)
  • Selina Painchaud, Technical Director (Edmonton Fringe)
  • Murray Utas, Artistic Director (Edmonton Fringe)
Application deadline is October 25, 2020. All applicants will be notified of their status no later than
October 30, 2020.


The Crossed Wires Cabaret is intended to demonstrate the far reaches of how artists can use technology
in their work. We encourage every idea, from a rough outline to a fully-previously-produced piece, to be
submitted for consideration. Ambition, play, and creativity are the spirit of the event.

We are seeking ideas that connect our at-home audience with our in-person audience. How can one
audience see a piece one way and the other audience have a completely different experience? How can
the at-home audience feel this performance is just as much for them as for the audience in the room?
If you’re not sure whether or not your idea is technologically possible, pitch it! Our team loves a technical challenge and wants to work with you to make it possible. We want to give artists time, resources, and money to explore an idea and try something new!
