Call for Artists
Theorist Fest is interested in presenting all dance forms and genres, in addition, to live music, physical theater, movement films, site-specific performances multi-media and visual art installations. We accept proposals for new works.
Submissions may also expand beyond the stage and include audience engagement, or educational components. Theorist Fest looks for experimental, courageous, crafted art that speaks to our role as artist citizens and connects us more deeply to ourselves, each other, and our environment.
Finding Fisterra, the edge of the known world.
Our 2019 Season is in collaboration with Fisterra. Our mission is to promote personal and social well-being on a local, national and global scale through the arts, aided by science and technology. We look forward to experiencing what Fisterra means to you!
