Adrian’s Project: Production and development grants funded by artists for artists.
Adrian’s Project is an annual grant giving performing arts competition for professional artists in the early stages of their careers. It helps get shows on the road, fly collaborators in for a gig, and assists in paying for that rehearsal space. It throws in for the popcorn, and showcases need to be seen performers of all kinds through residencies, and/or specific production and development grants. Adrian’s Project changes annually.
This year: Physical Comedy
Submission deadline: December 13, 2011
Notice of Award: February 13, 2012
Performances: TBA, Summer 2012 (3 week tour)
*Performers must have a completed show.
This year we are looking for the funny ones. We are looking for those of you who bring unabashed laughter and joy to people’s hearts and minds. More specifically, we are looking for folks who have a funny show they’d like to tour on the glorious West Coast of California, and we’d like to help you do it, and when I mean WE, I mean YOU.
Here’s how it works:
Because all of YOU gave us a bunch of money, WE will help YOU now in our first official inaugural, numero uno, first time ever grant-giving competition!
Haven’t given us a bunch of money?
Maybe not you personally, but a lot of people like YOU already have—thank them!
And, don’t worry, now you can support us too by participating and donating. Hoorah!
Full-length shows get ready. Soloists and ensembles of all kinds, welcome. In the spirit of competition, I heartfully say: Fight! To the death! Yeah! (Or at least send us your best stuff in accordance with our submission guidelines.)
Funny Mexicans and Greeks are encouraged to apply. As are funny Argentinians, and Italians. Funny Anglicans, Saxons, and Moors are also welcome. City folk, country people, foreigners, natives of all kinds, and those funny people living in Canada, we invite you as well.
YOU are all welcome to apply.
Adrian’s Project is funded by the Adrian Cervantes Mejia Fund and supported in part through the generosity of the Arcata Playhouse.
