The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA is calling for the submission of short puppet theater pieces ten minutes or less for the Xperimental Puppet Theater production.

Xperimental Puppetry Theater (XPT) is a program that offers the opportunity for professional and emerging artists to explore and experiment, creating original puppet theater geared to adult audiences.

You can apply as a Project Director with your own show, or as an Individual Member available to participate in the different pieces as performer, musician, puppet builder, etc.

Proposed pieces must be under ten minutes, and can feature any of the myriad styles of puppetry: shadows, marionettes, masks, automata, object theater, body puppets, rod puppets, etc

We also accept short puppet films. Proposed films must be under eight minutes, and can be stop-motion, claymation, live manipulation, collage, silhouette, or any other style of puppet film. Accepted films will be placed in the Center’s puppet film library.

We also accept puppetry themed installation art for display in our atrium during the production in May.

We are pleased to offer funding for new works. Project grants up to $400 may be awarded. In addition, rehearsal space, some technical, design, and manipulation assistance can be provided as available.

The deadline for project proposals is February 1st, 2010. Performance dates are May 13-16, 2010. For application and more info visit our website:
