BorderLight Fringe Festival

Award: 70/30 Box office split; fee arrangements for street theatre/performance

Deadline: 03/05/2021

Guidelines link: Click here for guidelines

Disciplines: Theatre

Location: Local (Cleveland Area)

As the reopening of indoor theatre venues remains uncertain, we’ve reimagined the 2021 BorderLight Festival as a primarily outdoor event - July 22-24 - with safety protocols overseen by public health advisors and in compliance with regional event reopening guidelines. Like with everything this year, we recognize that circumstances may change and have adapted our plan so that we may move forward, conservatively, in a way that embraces the current limitations on public gatherings of artists and audiences.

BorderLight will remain anchored in downtown Cleveland, making the festival accessible to visitors from across the city and beyond. Performances will take place across outdoor stages, tents, green spaces and other open-air locations to allow for social distancing, as well as interactive remote and streaming options to enjoy from home or live, whether as viewers or in interactive ways. We’re also seeking site-specific proposals to take place in locations within our downtown footprint. Have an idea? Tell us about it.

The BorderLight Fringe is the open call submission part of the Festival­­—application is free, there is no risk to submit. The Festival welcomes work from both established and emerging companies—we look forward to hearing from you!
