Call for IWW Submissions

Tuesday, July 11, 2017



Sarasvàti Productions is seeking monologues or solo performance pieces that explore women or women-identifying stories for their annual cabaret to celebrate International Women’s Week (March 4-10, 2018). They must be created by Canadian artists. This year’s theme is ‘I Am Unstoppable’ and we are looking for stories of meeting challenges, overcoming obstacles or simply living life to the fullest. The goal is to reflect a diversity of experience so we are looking for a range of material. It can be written work that we would produce or artists in Winnipeg may submit work that they would like to perform. Any style is acceptable as long as the piece is under ten minutes in length and fits the above criteria. Royalties will be paid for use of materials and all performers are paid fees based on number of presentations.

Please send:

-a letter detailing the piece’s production history, including whether it is from a larger work or a stand-alone piece
-a copy of the script or description of a non-text based work (feel free to also submit a video if that is a better way to capture the content)
-a two-line synopsis of the piece, presenting the context and character
-a short bio (maximum 100 words)

Deadline is September 1, 2017.

All submissions must be e-mailed to:

For more information please phone (204) 586-2236 or e-mail . For details on Sarasvàti Productions visit .
