Description Of Opportunity:

This call for entries is opened to national and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre.

EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE is the proposal of a work that really experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space.

In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing: the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors’ training; a link that connects the actors to the project of the company.

How To Apply:


The call is opened to Italian and international individuals or groups of professional theatre and performing arts, structured in any legal form that allows them to fulfill the administrative and bureaucratic practices necessary to realize their performance.

Only artistic projects that realize experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater, and performances of entertainment won’t be selected.

The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and / or visibility. It is advisable to submit works no longer than 60 minutes.


Submissions have to include:

  • Artistic CV of the company or of the artist;
  • Artistic form and technical specifications of the performance;
  • link to the full video of the performance (if the proposal consists on a debut, link to previous works). Video material has to beviewed directly online (by a link) and they mustn’t be downloaded (no wetransfer, google drive, etc.). Other ways of sending materials are not accepted.

    Each group or individuals can submit only one proposal.

    The application (with video links) has to be sent by e-mail to: [email protected] writing on the object of the mail “Submission to Festival Opera Prima 2021” by 12.00 am of the 28th March 2021.
