SHOWCASE VICTORIA 2019, 13 – 15 MAY, KARRALYKA CENTRE
Showcase Victoria is Australia’s leading state-based performing arts marketplace and a critical component of Victoria’s touring ecology. It provides a unique platform for producers, artists and theatre-makers to build relationships and promote their work to a wide range of venues and programmers with the ultimate aim of facilitating touring.
In 2019, Showcase Victoria turns 21 and we are excited to celebrate by introducing several new initiatives. These will include a streamed program structure allowing for attendance from a more diverse range of programming organisations including festivals and major performing arts companies; increased support for artists, producers and community presenters; the establishment of new industry partnerships; and a post-Showcase Victoria tour planning workshop for invited program participants.
Applications to be part of the program are encouraged from all genres of the performing arts (including contemporary music) and we are interested in productions looking to tour to both metro and regional venues, large and small including performing arts centres, festivals and community halls, in 2020 and beyond. See the 2018 production profiles for examples of the types of works featured in the program.
