Powered By Off-Center seeks proposals for a fully-funded theater production


The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is seeking project proposals for new theatrical experiences as part of its Powered By Off-Center program.

Powered By Off-Center began as an artist residency program, and has now become a new opportunity for Colorado-based artists to develop and produce a full production.

One project will be selected to receive a fully-supported world premiere production in June 2021.

Colorado artists of all disciplines are invited to submit a proposal. Off-Center is open to a range of different art forms and artistic experiences, but an eligible project must:

• Be theatrical at its core — containing a narrative thread, but not necessarily linear or verbal.

• Culminate in a live performance.

• Put the audience at the center of the story.

• Be created and produced in three months within a $10,000 production budget.

• Run at least one month and accommodate at least 1,000 audience members total.

• Be COVID-safe — either outdoors and socially distant with the possibility of masks required, online/virtual or a hybrid of both.

Submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. Jan. 17.
