The Northwest 10 Festival of 10-Minute
Plays goes digital in February 2021, celebrating its 13th
installment with a series of live-streamed performances. Script submissions are
open to the first 100 scripts sent in from September 1 through October 31,
2020. Selected works will be presented
in a series of events presented via digital livestream. Playwrights from
Oregon, Washington, Idaho and British Columbia are eligible to participate.
This year’s festival is titled
NW10: Into the Cybersphere, a nod to this
year’s all-digital format. "Livestream
theatre allows us to explore new boundaries and approaches to theatre making
and engagement,” says Eric Braman, one of the NW10 producers. “We are excited
to see how playwrights creatively utilize the assets of digital theatre to tell
dynamic stories. The best part? Theatre in the cybersphere is accessible
theatre! This is a great opportunity for playwrights to access a huge, new
audience across the digital world."
