Impact 19

MT Space is currently seeking submissions for works to be presented during the IMPACT 19 International Theatre Festival – likely taking place the final week of September 2019, most likely Tuesday, September 24 to 29, 2019 (unconfirmed).

IMPACT (International Multicultural Platform for Alternative Contemporary Theatre) is a biennial exploration and celebration of similarities and differences through innovative theatre.

Generally, our focus is on less-verbal forms of theatrical performance (i.e. physical and dance theatre or multimedia spectacles) in order to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers.

MT Space and IMPACT theatre festival curators are most interested in:

  • Physical, intercultural and interdisciplinary works that challenge the conventions of traditional theatre.
  • Developing forms and practices that draw upon, reflect, and constitute the diversity of contemporary Canadian culture.
  • Exploring cultural-specific and intercultural experiences through performance.

This festival’s focus is on the cultured body, exploration of body memory, and the manifestation of diverse expression in space.

IMPACT 19 applications that reflect MT Space and IMPACT’s mandate and practices will be most successful.
