Call for JAGfest 4.0 Proposals

February 2nd - February 9th, 2020


Every February for the past four years, JAG has invited artists to spend a week in White River Junction, Vermont to further the development of a new play or solo performance. Over the course of the one-week residency, three-five projects receive an intensive workshop, constructive feedback, a staged reading for the public at Briggs Opera House and the attention of a dramaturg, actors and JAG staff. 


Over the weekend JAG will host a different play (writer, director and cast – eight participants maximum) including a solo work or small performance piece. Each project will be in residence from Monday to Sunday, given several days of development work time, and conclude with a public presentation. There may also be additional places, as space allows, for individual artists to work on projects outside of the collaborative process (i.e. writing a play; planning a production; working on designs, etc.) 


JAGfest projects from February 2018 & 2019 included: ESAI’S TABLE written by Nathan Yungerberg and directed by Kimille Howard, THE JOURNEY BETWEEN written by Korde Arrington Tuttle and directed by Stevie Walker-Webb, BLANKS OR SUNDAY AFTERNOON, AFTER CHURCH written by Gethsemane Amy Herron-Coward and directed by NJ Agwuna, IF THIS BE SIN book by Kirya Traber, music by Sissi Liu and directed & choreographed by Christopher Windom, RABBIT SUMMER written by Tracey Conyer Lee and directed by Christopher Burriss.
