The theatre aspect of the festival will be the heart of one cohesive body. The SDE festival committee will review all applications and choose 10 diverse acts to present. There are no limitations on the style of the work (other than that the work must be of a devised nature), and all forms of theatrical expression are welcome. Diversity is key when it comes to the selection of our performance groups, so keep that in mind when you are preparing for your Application.
To ensure that all the Theatrical applications we receive are serious, candidates will be required to pay a $10 registration fee.
