|Application for Radiance -- A Virtual Playwriting Residency
Bucharest Inside the Beltway (BiB) is a Denver-based creative arts platform for local and international artists to promote their work and collaborate on a myriad of projects, all inspired by the fearless spirit of artists in Bucharest, Romania.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Radiance: A Virtual Playwriting Residency hosted by Bucharest Inside the Beltway. For 2021, we are focusing on the theme of Radiance.
What makes you glow? What makes you rise? Where is the positivity, the heat, the warmth, the sunshine and starshine in your body and environment? Or, what makes you diverge? What emanates from a core, seen or unseen? Where are the shadows, the chemicals, the rays of energy in your life? How do you experience radiance?
We are looking to create a tight-knit, dynamic group of 5-6 writers looking to develop new plays with each other in a collaborative environment. You do not need to have written a play before to apply to this residency. The final plays can range from a short play to one full-length play, as long as it is new work.
We invite artists and writers of all backgrounds to apply, especially BIPOC, LGBTQIA, and individuals who identify with other marginalized groups. In honor of BiB’s home cities, we are reserving one spot for a playwright from Bucharest, one from Washington D.C., and one from Denver.
The structure of the residency will consist of 8 virtual facilitated writers workshops (approx. 2 hours long) over the summer where we will share each other’s works-in-progress. Writers must commit to attending 7 out of the 8 workshops.
Workshops will be conducted in English. However, we welcome and support work in all languages, so if you are writing a play in different languages, we will find ways to translate it!
The workshops will take place between May-Aug 2021. Exact dates and times TBD based on participants’ schedules.
The final culmination will be a virtual showcase of the works from the residency, hosted by Bucharest Inside the Beltway. We also hope to have a Denver-based celebration of the plays, depending on local rules and guidance per the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications are due Sunday, January 31, 2021.
