The ProjectTableau D’Hôte Theatre invites you to submit to Resilience – a series of staged readings featuring Montréal's theatre school graduates of 2020 – presented from March 9th to 21st, 2021 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. Moved and inspired by the spirited resilience of the many theatre school grads whose works were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tableau D’Hôte Theatre presents a special performance event in their honour. From the loss and digitalization of their final student productions comes a community celebration of their academic artistic work – live, in-person, and on a professional stage.How it Works Emerging artists who graduated in 2020 from an accredited theatre training institution in Montréal* are invited submit to the Resilience series through this application form, designating their interest in participating in the staged readings as an actor, assistant director, assistant stage manager, assistant designer, and/or production technician. (To submit your works as a playwright, click HERE.) *Note that graduates from both English and French language schools may apply, but the reading series will be in English. Tableau D’Hôte Theatre will verify the eligibility of candidates by cross-checking each applicant's successful completion of a theatre program with the indicated partner institution. Verified applicants will be contacted by Tableau D’Hôte in early 2021 to confirm their availabilities to participate in the readings, which will be performances of original short works or excerpts of plays by Canadian playwrights. Candidates will be placed in 3-5 working cohorts, each of which will correspond to a reading. Each group will feature a mix of artists from the different schools. Casting and distribution of creative/production roles will be determined by the curators of the Resilience series based on the submission material received. With the goals of equity, diversity, and inclusivity in mind, we will aim to accept as many eligible candidates as possible for the readings and to give opportunities for all artists to be equally highlighted in the showcase. To achieve this balance, applicants may thus be invited to participate in more than one reading. Each cohort will meet to rehearse and perform (between March 9th and 21st) the staged readings with the guidance of a professional director from the Montréal theatre community. Each reading will require 8-16 hours of rehearsal time, which will culminate in a total of 2-3 showcase performances at the Segal Centre. In addition to all performances being open the general public, Montréal's top artistic directors, casting directors, and casting agents will be invited to attend the event. The goal of the series is to provide participating artists with visibility in the community and a professional working experience that will potentially open up new industry opportunities.How to SubmitIn order to submit to the Resilience reading series, applicants must be: A 2020 graduate of a theatre training program from an accredited Montréal theatre institution (Examples: National Theatre School of Canada, Concordia University, John Abbott College, and Dawson College.)
