Funded Opportunity to Participate in Small Season Festival for Artists in Bulgaria 2020

Theatre Laboratory Sfumato is looking for artists from any discipline who work within the theatrical tradition and are interested to share their work in the Small Season Festival for 2020 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Small Season festival will have its 20-year anniversary in 2020. It has been functioning as a non-profit 10-day summer observatory of the local scene where Bulgarian artists present their ideas and works in any stage of progress. To celebrate the anniversary, for the first time Theatre Laboratory Sfumato is announcing an international open call for performances to the program at the festival. The event will take place from 26 June 2020 to 5 July 2020. 

Participation Rules:

  1. You can apply as a team of up to 4 people. 
  2. There are no geographical or age limits.
  3. The festival which is entirely not-for-profit, doesn’t sell tickets and offers all events for free for the local audiences, is unable to pay fees but can provide artists with letters of invitation to apply for additional support from funding bodies in their countries. Additional travel funds can also be sought after in case you live beyond Europe.
  4. The proposals can vary in format and content – theatre, new writing and dramaturgy, performance and live art, public and participatory art (we have a big park outside the theatre that can be a site of happenings and installations), (post-)dance and (expanded) choreography, as well as talks, lectures, critical conversations, theoretical proposals, workshops that can drive the artist’s practice forward, while also contributing to the development of the local scene – and they, can also be in any stage of progress – from finished works to initial ideas/visions that need further time and space to be developed.


The festival will cover flights (up to 300 euros per person), accommodation (in a hotel in central Sofia) and board (breakfast in the hotel, lunch, and dinner at the restaurant at the theatre) for up to 4 nights/5 days. The theatre will provide advertising, materials and technical equipment to support the presentation and/or development of the projects.
