Jupiter Theatre is always looking to grow and to make new connections. We are currently seeking new collaborations with designers, stage management, and technical theatre practitioners for 2021 and beyond. We want to make relationships and connections in the Calgary theatre community! This is an opportunity for us to meet emerging and established talent that are interested in working with Jupiter Theatre in the future.
We are specifically looking for the following collaborators for various projects in spring and summer 2021 and are seeking submissions of interest for meetings:
- Assistant Stage Manager
- Costume Designer
- Fight Director
- Head of Properties
- Intimacy Coach
- Sound Designer
- Stage Manager
Artists outside of these disciplines (set designers, projection/video designer, lighting designer, etc.) are welcome to submit as well. We understand that many artists are multi-disciplinary, so please include in your email to us which discipline(s) you work in/you are interested in. At this time, we are not engaging members of CAEA or ADC, but we are still interested in meeting union members and encourage them to apply so we can meet and build a relationship for possible future collaborations.
The meetings will be held online via video call or by phone with artistic producer Andrew G. Cooper. Meetings may also include artistic associate Constantine X. Anastasakis and/or technical and production manager Skylar Desjardin as appropriate.
Performers/actors: hang tight! We are going to be releasing audition announcements for 2021 soon!
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: Sunday, February 7, 2021 at 11:59 PM
MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON:
February 8 – 20, 2021. Times will be scheduled with the submitters availability in mind and may include daytime afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays.
We want to meet you! To submit for a meeting, please email a resume/CV as a .pdf to artistic producer Andrew G. Cooper at email@example.com with the subject line “COLLABORATOR SUBMISSION”.
Jupiter Theatre encourages submissions from diverse individuals of all backgrounds, regardless of race, colour, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We welcome submitters to inform us of their pronouns if they wish, and to include details about how their identity informs their practice and needs as they feel comfortable.

With our ongoing commitment to inclusivity and accessibility as part of our mandate, we also strongly encourage submissions from the LGBTQ2+ and disabled communities. At this time, we are only accepting submissions from Calgary-based individuals.
All applicants are encouraged to submit under as many categories as they feel are appropriate. If you are a theatre practitioner who does not feel that they fit into any of the categories outlined in this posting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can best get a sense of who you are and what you do. Please also reach out to us if any of these guidelines or the submission process provide a barrier to you and we are happy to discuss alternate ways of submitting and/or meeting with you.
Jupiter Theatre is an independent theatre company in Calgary, AB. Jupiter Theatre creates original works of Canadian theatre that are visual, physical, and moving. We share powerful stories that explore the human condition and challenge audiences with contemporary social issues through visceral and innovative productions.
Jupiter Theatre would like to recognize the lands on which we work, explore, and create: Jupiter Theatre calls Treaty 7 Territory our home, which is the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
