2015 New Masculinities Festival: Call for Proposals


Man Question is seeking proposals for performance pieces for our third New Masculinities Festival! This exciting event will take place in New York City on Saturday, May 9--exact time and place to be announced.

We are seeking performances of all kinds that passionately and curiously investigate the question, “how do you stay human in the face of masculinity?”

Successful performance proposals explore how expectations of masculinity impact people’s lives, both positively and negatively, in overt and in unexpected ways.  Pieces in the festival also experiment with how to create less scripted, more intimate, and more fun lives and communities.

Check out our online submission form and begin your proposal now!

We seek pieces that have the potential to perturb the viewer to see the world in a new way.  We ask applicants to have a clear vision for their piece and background in performance that they need to bring the piece to life. We also warmly invite you to contact us to discuss your ideas.  Pieces in all genres of performance are accepted and encouraged!

Submit your proposal now and breathe new life into what it means to be a man!.

Proposals Due: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2015
