SOLO: Bag&Baggage’s Solo Performance Festival

 

Bag&Baggage Productions in Hillsboro, Oregon is seeking submissions from solo theatre performers interested in participating in our first annual SOLO Festival. The festival is scheduled to take place at The Vault Theatre in downtown Hillsboro on Thursday February 1st, Friday February 2nd, Saturday February 3rd and Sunday February 4th, 2018.

B&B is seeking 4 solo pieces that will each receive 2 performances during the short festival. Maximum length of the piece should be 75 minutes approximately as we intend to present 2 works per day.

SOLO will involve a juried selection process with a focus on the following artistic standards:

1)      Work that explores inclusion, diversity, and equity and that is produced/written/starring artists of color;

2)      Work that connects to B&B’s artistic mission of exploring classical literature in new and innovative ways;

3)      Work that is text-based; and

4)      Work that connects to contemporary issues of social justice.
