Call for submissions: Between the Seas staged readings

Between the Seas is an initiative that aims to bring together performing artists of the Mediterranean and Mediterranean diaspora, explore Mediterranean cultural identity, its historical connections, commonalities and differences and share with New York audiences the
vibrancy of contemporary Mediterranean cultural production.

In anticipation of Between The Seas festival in 2011, we are hosting an evening of staged readings that will give the opportunity to NY based artists to connect, share their work and interests and exchange projects and ideas. The event will take place on Monday October 18th,
6-10 pm at Solas [232 East 9th St.]

We are inviting proposals from directors, writers and theater companies for staged readings of : new plays by contemporary Mediterranean playwrights [preferably that have not been staged in NY before]; new plays by US-based playwrights that engage in various ways with Mediterranean culture and identity; short stories by Mediterranean writers that artists are interested in adapting for the stage.

We welcome short or full-length plays, as well as scripts still in progress. Please note: it is the responsibility of the artist to put together a team for the reading- we will not be involved in casting and directing the works.

Please submit: resume, a brief cover letter and a 10-page sample of the script. Deadline: September 20th. Email your materials to

Between the Seas is curated by Aktina Stathaki and produced by Les Manouches, a theater
company focusing on the creation of original works, intercultural collaborations and on bridging research with performance practice on topics of identity and culture.
