Call for Submissions for the JW3 Autumn 2018 Performance Programme: Cabaret and the Weimar Republic

JW3 is pleased to announce a call for submissions for the September-December 2018 Performance Programme. The theme for this season will be in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Weimar Republic. They are looking for theatre, performance, dance and comedy that responds to any number of the following themes:

  • The Weimar Republic
  • Cabaret
  • Queer performance
  • Intersections between Jewish culture and queer culture
  • Experimental political theatre
  • Political satire
  • Early 20th-century Germany
  • Political disruption
  • The 1920s and 1930s
  • Transgression
  • Underground
  • Boundary breaking
  • Berlin
  • The city at night

They are seeking work that is in a number of stages and are able to stage readings, scratch performances and full productions. This is a potential opportunity for artists who are seeking to develop their work, but also for those who are looking for touring slots and/or a London slot after the Edinburgh Festival.

What you get: 

  • A single showing at JW3 in our 200-seat hall or a 60-seat studio
  • A 70% box office split in your favour (after VAT)
  • A week’s worth of rehearsal space
  • Tech support during the get-in, technical rehearsal and performance
  • Marketing support
  • Dramaturgical support

“The aim of JW3 is to transform the Jewish landscape in London by celebrating and commemorating all aspects of Jewish life and history. The performance programme aims to promote new work for audiences of all backgrounds. We produce work which offers a unique and interesting response to Jewish culture particularly, but also reflect a broader range of themes such as identity, faith, culture, diaspora and others. We seek to develop a programme that is socially and politically engaged, represents a plurality of voices and also demonstrates a willingness to push creative boundaries. Find out more about us at”
