About the show
There is ONE slot available:
❈ Fall Slot: performances November 16-19.
If you are interested in proposing, please email Josie Miller (email@example.com) to get a board buddy who will guide you through the proposal process!
We invite any and all people, with any and all ideas to apply. Even if you've never done theater before, this is your chance to create an amazing piece of art for the Brown community to see!
Proposals are due Friday August 11 at 5pm.
Scripts (if applicable) are due Wednesday August 9 at 5pm.
For the fall slot, the written proposal questions are as follows:
❖ What are you proposing?
❖ What is your vision for the project?
❖ Describe a moment and how you would create it with your cast and/or team.
❖ Why should this project be given time and resources in the Downspace, specifically? Some reasons you may consider include: the specificity of the project, your perceptions of pw and its work, the unique opportunities the Downspace offers, current events and trends (on any scale), and your positionality with respect to the project and its goals?
❖ What’s something you’ve learned in the past that will inform you and your project in the future?
❖ What are you afraid of as you approach this project?
❖ It is important to foster equity and diversity in art and performance at Brown. In what ways will you ensure that your project and process will do this? Be specific and be sure to consider all aspects of production (e.g. casting, production team, rehearsals, etc.)? Please also discuss your own positionally and power both in the rehearsal room and the broader process.
The board will also hold virtual interviews with proposees following the written proposal deadline. The interview will be about 15 minutes long, but at the beginning you will have 5 minutes to "pitch" your project. This is an opportunity for you to share your vision with us, show us why you are excited, and get us excited too!! It is also an opportunity to add anything that you might not have been able to touch on in the proposal. Feel free to bring in other materials if you feel that they will help your proposal.
