The Rhubarb Festival invites artists into a critic-free environment where bold, thought-provoking, and boundary-pushing works can thrive. Over two weeks, hundreds of artists from Toronto and beyond transform the Buddies neighbourhood into a hotbed of experimentation, sharing new ideas in contemporary theatre, performance art, dance, and music with adventure-loving audiences.

We are currently seeking proposals for our upcoming festival (February 12-23, 2014)

DEADLINE: 5PM, Friday September 13, 2013

ABOUT THE RHUBARB FESTIVAL

Established in 1979, the Rhubarb Festival is produced by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and is Canada’s longest-running festival of new performance offering Toronto fresh, live encounters with contemporary theatre, performance art, dance and music. For over three decades, Rhubarb has encouraged established artists to take new risks and emerging artists to explore the possibilities of performance in a supportive space. Every year, hundreds of local and international artists descend on Buddies to share new ideas in performance creation with adventure-loving audiences. Many Rhubarb shows have gone on to be further developed and presented in Toronto, across Canada and internationally.

ABOUT BUDDIES IN BAD TIMES THEATRE

Established in 1979, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is a professional Canadian theatre company dedicated to the development and presentation of queer theatre. Over the past 30-something years, it has evolved from a small production company into the largest facility-based queer theatre company in the world. The theatre sits in the heart of downtown, adjacent to Toronto’s Gay Village, and its primary constituencies are the city’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities, and an urban alternative theatre-loving audience, both LGBT and straight. In addition to being a theatre, Buddies is a popular gay nightclub with weekly late-night events occurring year-round.
