Expanse 2023 

The Future is Ours

What are we going to do with it?

For the 2023 Season of Expanse, we are asking: what will our world look like in the future? 

 What worries us? What excites us? What inspires us? How do we move forward together?

Do you have new work that explores these themes? 

We are welcoming folks to share in this artistic journey!

SEASON ARTWORK AND MERCH DESIGN APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

MAINSTAGE APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED  – Check back for more Opportunites Soon!

Mainstage Applications - 2023 - NOW CLOSED


Expanse is a 10 day Movement Arts Festival that focuses on body-based work from a cross-section of artists. Expanse offers opportunity, inspiration, education, and community for artists and audiences who share a love and curiosity in physical performance.

The festival has two main streams: a Performance Series of performance works by local, regional, national and international artists and the Expanse Community Outreach Program which encompasses a number of activities through which the festival interacts with the Edmonton Community at large.

We support and encourage the sharing of space and stories from all bodies, lands and languages. Many experiences and stories have yet to be experienced and shared on our stages. We acknowledge this and actively strive to change it. All experience levels are welcome, from artists just starting their performing/creating practices to established artists in the community, we want to share in your work!

 

Submissions for this project are open to all. If you have yet to see your story on stage, we are here to listen, learn and create together.
