Decolonise Your Ears
New Play Festival
The three-night festival will take place from Sept 21-23, 2023 and feature three new plays.
Red Beti Theatre is proud to announce the launch of the 3rd annual Decolonise Your Ears New Play Festival.
Decolonising theatre means expressing culturally specific ideas, mythologies, music, dance; IBPOC bodies occupying space in celebration of our unique identities, and subverting rigid hierarchies in favour of a more equitable approach. It means brown and black bodies having time to explore our voices, develop our practices and explore lesser-known cultural forms without having to negotiate, conform or squeeze into the parameters of Western aesthetics.
Open Call for Submissions
Are you an Indigenous, Black or other Racialised woman playwright?
Do you have a new play?
Submissions are now open to IBPOC women playwrights for Red Beti’s 3rd Annual Decolonise Your Ears New Play Festival.
Please submit 5 to 10 pages of new writing and a cover letter telling us about yourself.
A jury will select three playwrights who will receive a commission of $1000.00 to develop their work with dramaturgical support. The development process will culminate in a staged reading in October 2023.
