The Butterfly Club are seeking Expressions Of Interest (EOIs) from producers and artists who wish to be a part of their 2016/17 Curated Summer program. Successful applicants will produce a one-week season of their work between December 2016 and February 2017. The Butterfly Club will consider independent works including theatre, cabaret, comedy, sketch, vaudeville, burlesque and live music.
Now in their 18th year of operation, The Butterfly Club are renowned for supporting independent performing artists by presenting their work, and by working with producers on audience development and marketing identity. The curated season will provide an opportunity for independent artists and producers to launch new works and to further develop established productions.
“Our tiny theatre plays host to some 1100 performances each year,” says Simone Pulga, Director of The Butterfly Club. “While we are committed to remaining open access throughout our program, the curated seasons serve as a roadmap; a hand-selected pick of some of the most diverse and interesting artists that Melbourne has to offer”.
As with all productions at The Butterfly Club, show durations must be no longer than 60 minutes and must comply with all relevant OHS requirements.
Successful applicants will be offered a season of 6 performances at 8.30pm for a week during Summer. Expressions of Interest should be submitted via The Butterfly Club website thebutterflyclub.com/producers by 5pm on Monday the 15th of August.
