Submissions open for Incoming Festival 2016

2016 Incoming Submissions

Incoming Festival is a celebration of the best emerging theatre companies, curated by A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre. Following a hugely successful 2015 festival, which saw 23 theatre companies performing to over 1,200 audience members, we’re excited to launch submissions for Incoming Festival 2016.

Would you like a chance to showcase your work at a London theatre and to network with your peers? Are you an emerging theatre company? Read on to find out what we offer and how to apply.

We offer: a flat fee and a 50:50 box office split to all of the companies that perform at Incoming Festival; a supportive festival environment with networking opportunities; a series of free workshops; the chance to build a London audience for your work and free production photography by New Diorama Theatre’s resident photographer.

If you would like to be considered for Incoming Festival 2016 please follow these steps:

Edinburgh Festival Fringe:
If you are attending the Edinburgh Festival Fringe please fill in this form with as much detail as possible. We try to see every show to which we are invited, but it is not always possible to see everything. We programme half of the festival via shows we are invited to see during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Deadline for inviting us to your show in Edinburgh is 17 July 2015.

Not Attending Edinburgh:
If your company is not attending the Edinburgh Festival Fringe you can still apply to be part of Incoming Festival by either submitting via this form OR by sending us an invite to your show via email. We try to see as many shows across the year but regret we have a small team with limited travel budget. We will gladly accept video submissions so do include any links to your shows that we can look at as this will really help us.

There is no deadline for inviting us to your show outside the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

What are we looking for?

Incoming Festival is for the best emerging theatre companies. “Emerging” means that you are at an early stage of making work – it is not limited by age, and if you feel that the label applies to your work then we will happily consider you for Incoming Festival. We’re looking for theatre companies only. See more on the Get Involved page which includes a FAQ.

What are the dates?
Incoming Festival will be returning 27 June – 10 July 2016.
