TALOS III: SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE FESTIVAL OF LONDON
2-9 December 2019
At Omnibus Theatre
Call for Proposals
Talos – created in 2015 – is the first science fiction theatre festival of London, the UK and, to our knowledge, Europe, and it’s currently in its third year, after a second festival in March 2018. Talos III invites theatre companies to submit proposals for full length shows of 50 to 60 minutes. The 2019 festival takes place for 8 days, 2-9 December at Omnibus Theatre (their beautiful Studio Upstairs), where we’ll programme two shows per night.
We welcome proposals for theatre productions and performances with sci-fi elements but also related genres such as contemporary fantasy. We’re excited to hear from all artists but want to particularly encourage BAME and LGBTQ+ artists and theatre companies to propose their own SF visions.
We’re interested in all kinds of science fiction performance, including but not limited to:
Utopian theatre, dystopian theatre
Science fiction dance (including Robot Dance)
Afrofuturist Theatre, Queer Science Fiction
Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Biopunk, Hopepunk, Mythpunk
Devised, Immersive, Tragicomic (even Stand-Up Sci-Fi Theatre)
Post-Apocalyptic, Post-Modern, Post-Dramatic
Cyborg Theatre, Robot Theatre, AI Theatre, Weird / New Weird Theatre
Talos is produced by the London-based theatre company Cyborphic which is also organising the Science Fiction Theatre Research Lab workshop series and the Stage the Future conference on science fiction theatre.
Application Deadline for Talos III: 31st August 2019
