Showcase Victoria is the performing arts marketplace – an annual event which provides a unique platform for producers, artists and theatremakers to promote their work to a wide range of programmers from Victoria and beyond and ultimately to facilitate touring.
We encourage applications from all genres of the performing arts (including contemporary music) and are interested in productions looking to tour to both metro and regional venues, large and small including performing arts centres, festivals and community halls, in 2019 and beyond.
In 2018 the Showcase Victoria event program will be made up of the following sessions –
- Pitches – live presentations of 8 minutes’ duration
- Excerpts – 12 minutes of live performance
- EXPO – where companies and artists with multiple works on offer promote them at trade show style stalls
