  • Deadline: August 7th, 2020

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility:

    • For our next show we would like to boost voices of playwrights who are BIPOC and/or who are members of the LGBTQ+ community. If you do not fall in these categories, please do not send work at this time. As we are performing a reading virtually, we have learned to ask for a few things with our scripts technically. All scripts must be 60-75 pages (no more than 75 pages), have 4-7 actors (can be double cast, have diversity in the actors, have realistic capabilities for virtual readings. 

    • As a socially responsible theater, each show that we do chooses its own charity or non-profit that it will spotlight. A portion of all donations from the show will go to support that charity or non-profit. As a result, the topics that we are looking for are rather relevant to today’s world and we ask that playwrights consider this carefully: Trans visibility/rights, political rights, immigration/ICE, weird illness, unemployment, education reform, health stories, gun control, human rights, voting rights, etc. 

    • We are open to other stories as well but you have to make sure that we will think it is relevant to what audiences will be interested in hearing today as we traverse our current upside down world and barrel towards an election. We are open to biography, drama, comedy, dark comedy, fantasy, magical realism, adventure, historical drama, etc. 

    • Please avoid scripts concerning horror, a lot of violence, physicality, TYA scripts, and scripts that require people to be talking simultaneously.

  • Deadline: Applications for Summer residencies begin in March 2020

  • Application Fee: $5

  • When: Year round

  • Eligibility: Laboratory offers two tracks for all eligible applicants:

    • The Production Track. “This track is focused on making something cool, interesting, and aesthetically pleasing. That project you’ve always wanted to do, but never had the time? This is the track for that. In your application, we’ll basically want you to describe what you want to build. Include a preliminary idea of the technologies you want to use and an initial schedule and/or timeline for your projects implementation. Please build in 2 weeks of buffer into your schedule, that is your schedule should be 2 weeks shorter than your intended period of residency.”

    • The Research Track. “The research track is for people wanting to push forward the field of interactive art – this can mean lots of things, but overall, this is the track for you if you’re wanting to create new techniques, hack together new tools, or explore novel ways of interaction. Basically, if you’re looking to do anything that looks into ‘what is interaction’, ‘how can we make the world more interactive’, or ‘how do people react to interactive art’, we’d love to help you find some answers. For this track in particular it is important for us to have a clear understanding of your particular skill set. Your portfolio and and well documented examples of your previous work and/or progress is essential when applying for this track. We are especially interested in your previous research experience and any background research that pertains to your proposal. Depending on the nature of your work it may be useful to include a brief bibliography, works cited, and a list of the frameworks you intend to use.”
