Thank you for applying to the 11th annual Toronto Burlesque Festival! Our goal is to showcase the best in local, national and international talent, while providing opportunities for performers to network together and build community. To kick off our second decade of dazzle, we're refreshing our production. With this in mind we are looking for your most spectacular performance proposals. We welcome acts suited for the main stages, intimate numbers in the round, explosive performances on the bar, aerial acts suspended overhead, and more. We are seeking a vivid mixture of solo striptease, troupe and duo acts, as well as drag, singing, cosplay, circus, aerial, and sideshow numbers. We encourage vivid, diverse, leading edge numbers that show masterful use of costume, comedy, character, satire, politics, glamour, production value, and beyond. With your performance application, we are also welcoming workshop proposals to teach at TBF Burlesque University! Successful applicants will receive an honorarium, a pass to attend all festival shows, a discount for one guest general admission, and more. We regret that we cannot pay for hotel and travel for out-of-town guests, but we will attempt to assist with introductions to local community members who may be able to host guests.
Please submit one act and up to two workshops per application. You are welcome to submit as many applications as you wish. Each application costs $15.00 CAD.
