Carlos Bulosan Theatre Play Creation Unit

Call for Submissions

Carlos Bulosan Theatre

Play Creation Unit

The Carlos Bulosan Theatre’s (CBT’s) mandate is to reflect on social issues affecting the Filipino and broader community. CBT is also committed to creating innovative work that reflects a vibrant, new generation of Filipino-Canadian artists. CBT seeks to encourage and develop Filipino-Canadian writers, performers, and other artists within the community.

The CBT Play Creation Unit is a novice play creation program. It introduces participants to various approaches to making theatre. Through regular workshops and sessions with professional theatre artists, we help participants identify, cultivate and explore their creative voice. Each member will create a 10-15 minute piece of theatre that will be presented in CBT’s annual showcase of new work Tales from the Flipside at the end of February 2008.

Submission Guidelines:

  • A letter of interest outlining why you would like to be part of the program, including an idea you would like to develop into a piece of theatre
  • A 1-2 page submission of creative writing (this can take the form of dialogue, poetry, prose, short story, etc.)

The Play Creation Unit begins meeting September 2007 through to January 2008.

The deadline for submissions is August 3, 2007
. Submissions can be sent by email to: info@carlosbulosan.com . Submissions by mail should be sent to: Carlos Bulosan Theatre, 167 Augusta Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 2L4
