Call for Submissions – CRAPSHOOT

In Call to Artists on October 28, 2010 by danceumbrella

We want you to take a Gamble on you!

The Elephants in the Room would like to invite artists of all disciplines to audition for the first ‘CRAPSHOOT’ of the season at Theatre Passe Muraille’s Cabaret Stage!

If you don’t know, Crapshoot is an evening of late-night, rapid-fire performances featuring new work by some of the best of Toronto’s up-and-coming talent, complete with a ticking clock and obnoxiously loud buzzer!

On Friday, December 3, our carefully selected artists, will all grace the stage in a random order, as selected by the audience during the show. Each group/performer will have a total of 5 minutes on stage to try out a new work in front of a lively audience willing to take a gregarious gamble. The audience will decide who will have a longer-than-five-minute time slot in our next Crapshoot!

We welcome actors, directors, writers, musicians, comedians, dancers, producers, visual artists and anyone who rolls over the boundaries between these roles. Our evenings are typically put together with a variance in mind, so ante up and go all in!
