About the Festival

After a 2-year online-only odyssey, we’re thrilled to plan to be live & in-person for 2022!

We are looking for Canadian full-length (60 min) and triple-bill length (12-18 min) clown-theatre and physical comedy acts.

Canadian 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 2022 festival will bring together seasoned and emerging local and national clown and physical theatre artists for four days of performances that embrace risk, exploration, and play. We strongly encourage applications from both established and emerging theatre artists, and artists with diverse identities, and cultural backgrounds.
