Call For Submissions (Calgary): Hot Summer Nights Cabaret – Incendiary Festival

Call For Submissions (Calgary): Hot Summer Nights Cabaret – Incendiary Festival


Hot Summer Nights Cabaret is an opportunity for emerging artists to put their work on in front of an audience!

Stepping into summer, especially when you’re young, can feel like stepping into another universe. One where changes are cataclysmic, lessons are forever, and every moment feels like now or never. Hot summer nights encompass all these feelings. The first time you kissed, the night you learned how to drive, that time at camp when you confessed you don’t believe in god at 3 am.

Bring your caffeine raddled fears, your shaking hands, your quiet contemplation. Bring the things you’ve worked on for years, the project you made up ten seconds ago, the thing you’re sure we won’t like. Tell us all about your hottest summer night.

Incendiary Festival was founded in 2019 as an independent theatre company based in Calgary (Mohkinstsis), Alberta. Our focus is on creating theatre that affects people, operating as the spark that starts fires of innovation, confidence, and change within its audience. Incendiary’s most recent production was Swallowing Seeds, an original play written by Rebecca and Jack Orion, which was featured at The GRAND Theatre this past March.
