Xperimental Puppetry Theater (XPT): Call for Submissions

Straight from the puppet's mouth - XPT Promo Video

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 Puppetry Theater program. XPT offers the opportunity for professional and emerging artists in all disciplines 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, builder, 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 extensive Puppetry Research Library.

We also accept puppetry themed installation/performance art which can take place anywhere on the Center’s grounds during the production in May. We are pleased to offer funding for new works. Project grants up to $450 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, 2011. Performance dates are May 19-22, 2011. For application and more info visit our website:
