For Immediate Release

Boundless Theatre Company Opens Submissions
for Boundless Exposed, a workshop and mentoring
opportunity for early-career designers of color.

Submissions due February 18th

Boundless Theatre Company (María-Cristina Fusté, Executive Artistic Director) has opened submissions for Boundless Exposed, a workshop and mentoring opportunity for emerging theatre designers of color. During this two-week program, participating designers will have the opportunity to work alongside experienced mentors in shaping an installation-style design appropriate for a short play.

Participating designers will collaborate to create a conceptual installation inspired by a short script, which will be written by an established playwright of color. The workshop will consist of four design meetings over a one-week period, as well as a second week of hands-on implementation. The program will conclude with a public presentation of participants’ original installation design, featuring professional actors and directors and followed by a talkback.

Design meetings will take place between May 1st and May 8th, 2019. The design will be implemented from May 22nd - May 24th at the Julia de Burgos Performance and Arts Center in East Harlem. The final presentation and talkback will occur on May 25th.

Boundless is seeking enthusiastic early-career set, lighting and costume designers eager to examine the conceptual design possibilities within a theatrical text. Participants should be committed to exploring ideas collaboratively in a boundless creative atmosphere. Designers should have an interest in networking with experienced design professionals, and should share the goals and values of Boundless Theatre Company.

Boundless is a designer-led organization seeking to investigate, push and redefine the boundaries of theatrical storytelling. Spearheaded by women and theatre-makers of color, Boundless is committed to creating inquisitive and socially relevant theatre. A member of A.R.T./NY, Boundless operates simultaneously in New York and Puerto Rico.

To apply, please submit your resume, a letter of recommendation, two samples of your work, and a letter of intent to mcfuste@boundlesstheatre.org. The letter of intent should explain why this program is a good fit for you, why you are interested in collaborating with Boundless, and how this experience will contribute to your career goals. All application materials should be submitted in a single PDF document with the subject line “Boundless Exposed Application.”
