An Open Call for Artist Proposals
HATCH: emerging performance projects at Harbourfront Centre

Deadline for Proposals: June 27, 2008

TORONTO, May 6, 2008Harbourfront Centre is pleased to announce an Open Call for proposals from Toronto-area artists and companies working in the field of performance for HATCH: emerging performance projects for the 2008/2009 series. Companies and artists selected to participate in HATCH will receive a one-week residency in Harbourfront Centre’s Studio Theatre.

HATCH is designed to incubate and foster invention and innovation in the local theatre and performance landscape. Entering its sixth year, this programme has become an important element in the milieu of local performance development. Full criteria, qualification information and instructions for applicants can be found at

harbourfrontcentre.com/hatch, or phone 416-952-7969.

While the primary focus of HATCH has traditionally been on projects from emerging theatre artists, Harbourfront Centre also invites proposals from established artists engaging in new collaborations or entering into new artistic territory, as well proposals within dance or interdisciplinary performance. Of particular interest are proposals that can demonstrate how HATCH will benefit the project or the artist during this stage of development.
