Call for Submissions: Fredericton Arts Alliance’s Artist in Residence Summer Series 2015

This year’s theme is Up Your Art: Step Outside Your Comfort Zone. The Fredericton Arts Alliance invites submissions for its Artist in Residence Summer Series 2015. We seek emerging and experienced artists working in any media, including architecture, performance, music, dance, media, literary arts, visual art and fine craft. Artists from diverse cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

This year we are asking artists to use their week to step outside their comfort zone – by using new materials, focusing on new subjects, exploring new technologies, or delving into new media. Artists will be encouraged, where appropriate, to work beyond the confines of the Garrison District to further engage the public.

The residencies will take place at the Soldiers’ Barracks in the Historic Garrison District from June 1 to September 7. Dates will be contingent on funding. Each residency is one week in duration from Monday to Sunday.

All artists are invited to submit an application in response to the theme.

Applications can be found on the FAA website at To submit applications or make inquiries please email:

Physical Theatre and Devised Creation Workshop

Theatre New Brunswick has partnered with The Fredericton Playhouse to present an exciting, two-week training opportunity for emerging and experienced theatre artists, exploring aspects of physical theatre and devised creation.

Under the direction of TNB’s Artistic Director Thomas Morgan Jones and Ravi Jain, artistic director of Why Not Theatre, participants will train from August 10-22, 2015 finishing with a public performance on The Playhouse stage.

The first week of training will focus on approaches to physical theatre as well as the use of text in physical theatre.  In week two, the training will move toward devising and presenting a physical ensemble creation using Shakespeare’s Macbeth as source material.

Participants will gain experience creating and communicating with their bodies as tools to tell stories.  They will learn how to create quickly, efficiently, expertly, and freely with other artists.  They will be given the tools to then repeat and re-create with confidence.

This call is open to all actors, directors, and theatre artists in Canada.  Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, resume, and headshot.  Applications will be accepted upon receipt of a $150 non-refundable deposit. Deadline for applications – July 10, 2015.  The full fee for the two week workshop is $400+HST.
