Anywhere Theatre Festival 2014 – expressions of interest now open

Anywhere Theatre Festival believes there is a better way for performers and producers than waiting for rare slots in theatres and losing life savings presenting in fringe festivals where there are more performances than audiences members and the entire budget goes on venue hire and paying for everything but the creation of the work.


In 2014 Anywhere is taking a great leap forward from being a coordinated open access festival anywhere but a theatre to be fully curated. Anywhere believes this will provide the best experience for emerging and established artists, audiences, locations and all partners.


Expressions of Interest (EoI) open 7 November and close Tuesday 24 DecemberEven better, the EoI process is really simple.


The festival runs Wednesday 7 May to Sunday 18 May 2014.


Upon submitting your EoI, you’ll be asked to pay $20. Why $20 to express interest? The curatorial team want to know you’re serious (even if you want to present a comedy) and they figure if you can forgo five $4 coffees, then you’re serious… and probably in need of a coffee. They’ve also reduced all the participation fees by $20 from last year to compensate.


Your involvement will be confirmed prior to the participation deadline of 14 January 2014.


Costs are:

  • $310 Standard Participation including insurance
  • $230 Participation (you have your own insurance)
  • $100 per Free Production (for as many instances as you want)

Why pay a participation fee?


In 2013 Anywhere provided an estimated $14,600 worth of services to each production.

In 2014 the services and resources will include:

  • Festival program distributed to 20,000 people throughout Brisbane
