Between the Seas festival: Call for Submissions and BTS news

After a much needed break and some time for thinking, planning and dreaming of the future, Between the Seas is back!

We have launched our call for submissions for Between the Seas 2015. Breaking slightly from our previous years' tradition, next year we will hold BTS in September (7-13th), at our Wild Project home. We are inviting submissions in three categories (young artists/new works; main program; new plays) and the deadline is January 15. As with every edition, we hope to bring back some of our favorite artists from past years and welcome new ones! For questions and more information artists can write to:

The Sacred Way, by Unguarded Collective

Abandon The Citizens

Keeping with our vision to expand our activities beyond the annual festival, this Fall, we initiatedThe Testimony Project a workshop exploring testimony in performance. We are bringing together artists and projects that we have already established a relationship with: Mohammad Al Attar (BTS 2014) and his play Could you Please look info the Camera? ; Unguarded Collective (BTS 2014) and their devised performance The Sacred Way; and Aktina Stathaki's Abandon the Citizens (2013-2014). A Creative Space Grant from the Alliance of Residence Theaters gives us much needed time and space to explore and develop the pieces in a process-oriented environment which we plan to continue in the Spring.

2015 is going to mark our 5th year of activity. In those years of hard work to establish a presence for Mediterranean voices, we have been fortunate to meet and work with amazing artists in New York and internationally and get the attention and support of institutions who have helped us grow. As we're entering our 5th year with new ideas, plans and ambitions, we are thankful to each and everyone of you for being part of this community and we hope to continue sharing with you interesting, innovative and beautiful performances!
