EOIs close 10 March, 5pm AEDT

Profile EOIs are now closed.

PROFILE is an opportunity for Australian and New Zealand contemporary performing artists and companies to start a conversation about their work through an online pitch presentation.

With the internationally recognised platform of APAM’s Gatherings providing a jumping-off point, PROFILE will help you share your ideas and ambitions with venues, presenters and festivals locally and globally.

Submit an Expression of Interest to pitch at the APAM Gathering at RISING this June and, if selected, you’ll work alongside APAM’s supportive and experienced team to be guided through the process to prepare and present pitches of up to 5 minutes. Pitches can be for works already premiered, or an idea in development, from a broad range of performing arts genres, and will be presented online to Gathering participants.

EOIs are open for performance projects spanning theatre, contemporary dance, circus, physical theatre, hybrid or experimental works, sound art, multi-artform, and works for multigenerational audiences. There are two categories for artists:

HERE’S WHAT WE MADE: for works already premiered, either IRL or digitally, seeking further presentation opportunities

HERE’S OUR IDEA: profiling an idea in development for further collaborations, commissions and presentation

What’s the difference between PROFILE and SHOWCASE?
Works included in PROFILE are selected by an international curatorial panel, convened by APAM, from an expressions-of-interest process. Profile sessions are fully pre-recorded and presented digitally, for widest viewing and accessibility among Gathering participants.

Works included in SHOWCASE are curated and presented as part of the host festival, RISING, who have now finalised their 2023 program which will be launched in mid March.
