About Tremors
Tremors is a vehicle for emerging artists to build networks, receive professional mentorship, develop their craft, and work on exciting plays. It will feature a company of emerging directors, stage managers, designers, producers, technicians, and actors working under the guidance of professional mentors to produce three contemporary Canadian plays. Rumble provides mentorship from professional theatre practitioners, rehearsal space, production budget, publicity and marketing, production management, performance venue, and a small honorarium to all participants.

Emerging Artists: Eligibility
Rumble defines an “emerging artist” as a theatre practitioner (actor, designer, stage manager, technician, director) who is within five years of their professional debut. The ideal emerging artist has completed formalized training, is not yet a full member of a professional artists’ association (e.g. CAEA) and intends on making their living in the theatre. Alternatively defined as an artist who self-identifies as “young-in-craft”. For the purpose of this application, designers, stage managers, technical directors, and producers must be able to demonstrate past work. This can include projects undertaken as a part of a training program.

Submission Procedure
Applicants are asked to submit, via email, a CV and a cover letter outlining why they are interested in taking part in Tremors. Please include a brief statement of availability (including potential scheduling conflicts) in your cover letter.

We strongly encourage submissions from artists who self-identify as members of under-represented communities. We hope to create artistic teams that represent the diversity of Vancouver.

Part-time rehearsals will begin in June 2018 (based on the availability of the teams). Other important dates to note: Tech days – Aug 13 – 16. Festival run – August 16 – 25. Strike – Aug 26. Ample availability is an asset.

Submissions should be sent to jhood@rumble.org with the subject heading “Tremors Submission” with the role you are applying for clearly indicated (e.g. Costume Designer). If you are applying for multiple roles, please indicate all of them.

The deadline for submissions is May 14, 2018.

 We thank all who apply; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
