OutFest, a 6-day festival, is the largest Queer Theatre festival in Atlantic Canada. The festival will once again take place at The Bus Stop Theatre from Tuesday, April 24th - Sunday, April 30th, 2023. Our festival currently operates on a profit-share model, ensuring that every artist involved is paid.
After a successful relaunch this past March, we have adjusted our festival lineup, adding new categories and tweaking some of our previous ones. This will allow for more artists to get involved and create additional opportunities for professional, and emerging Queer artists.
We are once again looking for Emerging and Main Stage pieces. As well as Two-Spirit artists for our Two-Spirit Stage. However, we are also adding: a Family Stage, a Digital Stage, and Queer-Prov, an evening of improv comedy. Our Family Stage will take place on Saturday morning and will be designed for Queer families and/or families with Queer children. We will be seeking a performer/performance designed for young audiences. Our Digital Stage will take place on Sunday morning and will be an opportunity for folks to engage with digital and/or interactive content. We will be seeking a performer/performance that makes use of digital or interactive media. Our Emerging Stage will feature 2 (max 60 min) pieces that are considered New Work (not previously workshopped or produced). Our Main Stage will feature 2 (max 60 min) pieces that may have been workshopped or produced in a limited capacity.
