After a 2-year online-only odyssey, we’re thrilled to plan to be live & in-person for 2022!

Canadian physical performers, clowns, and comedic character actors are invited to apply to Play the Fool Festival, Edmonton’s festival of clown and physical comedy. Held in historic Old Strathcona at the ATB Financial Arts Barns, the 2022 festival will bring together seasoned and emerging local and national clown and physical theatre artists for four days of performances that embrace risk, exploration, and play. We encourage applications from both established and emerging theatre artists, and artists with diverse identities, and cultural backgrounds.

We are looking for professional full-length shows (60 min) from experienced Canadian clown-theatre and physical performers, and triple-bill length performances from a wide-range of clown artists, emerging and experienced (12-18 min).

STEP 2: SUBMIT your awesome, hilarious show using the Google Form.
