Creators’ Lab 2019 Applications due Wednesday, April 1st 2020


Theatre 4.669 is currently accepting applications from creative teams or individuals to participate in our summer Creators’ Lab. If you have a theatrical project in the “it’s only an idea right now” phase, and are looking to develop the idea, experiment, generate new ideas, and try out new forms of performance, then you and your project would be a great fit for the lab. 

We are looking for all types of performances makers, from poets to dancers, musicians to circus performers, playwrights and actors to opera singers. Our past projects have included  playwright & text driven plays, improv inspired works, TYA, a puppet show, a few musicals and many actor driven new creations. We are keen to try anything. You can check out past projects HERE

Successful applicants will receive the following from Theatre 4.669:

1) A Theatre 4.669 company member assisting with the development of the project.

2) Financial support ($800.00 honorarium per creative team member)

3) 30 to 40 hours of studio time at the University of Ottawa (see below)

4) Access to stock furniture, props and costumes and technical advice.

5) A presentation on Monday, August 10, when all artistic teams will present 15 to 20 minutes of material to an invited audience.​


Application process - It’s so simple:

1) An individual or group must put together a one to two-page proposal describing your idea or “The What”, the questions you have surrounding it “The Why” and “How” you might want to use your time in the lab. Give us a brief , brilliant description of the what, the why and the how.


2) Include the CVs of the creator(s) involved.


3) Email all documents, together, in ONE clearly titled PDF file to: Kevin Orr, Artistic Director, Theatre 4.669 at by Wednesday, April 1st 2020 at 5pm.

Project Development Schedule


During May, June, July and the first part of August 2020, each team of creators will meet for approximately two to four hours/week for a total commitment between 30 to 40 hours. Team members, with some flexibility, must be able to fulfill this requirement. We schedule according to everyone’s availability, but if someone on your team is away “all of June and July”, for example, then it is likely not going to be a feasible project.

If you have applied before without success, PLEASE keep trying.

Les demandes d’artistes francophones sont encouragées et peuvent être complétées dans la langue de leur choix.

We look forward to reading your submission.
