In addition to the live productions of the 2020/21 season, the Alliance will launch a new streaming platform – Alliance Theatre Anywhere – to bring the best of the Alliance’s stages to the digital world. Streaming shows and exclusive content will be available on demand. The Artist Channel will premiere on Alliance Theatre Anywhere in January 2021.
All Atlanta area artists are invited to submit a proposal to produce for The Artist Channel, an extension of the Alliance Theatre’s inaugural digital season. The Artist Channel seeks to provide space for generative artists of all varieties to explore the use of digital platforms in creating new and exciting theatrical works. The Artist Channel application is available for artists of all disciplines and styles – actor, director, designer, writer, composer, choreographer, or musician (as examples) – to develop digital work.
Seven Artists will be granted $5,000 to develop and produce a thirty-minute digital work within a 60 day period. After the 60 day period, the finished work will live on the Alliance Theatre Anywhere streaming platform as part of the 2020-2021 digital season. Please note that while we encourage experimenting with new platforms, The Artist Channel is an instrumental part of The Alliance’s digital season and we expect the final product to be a completed work, ready to be presented on Alliance Theatre Anywhere.
The applications will be adjudicated by the digital season’s Co-Artistic Directors and Spelman Leadership Fellows, Jessenia Ingram and Alexis Woodard; and BOLD Producing Associate, Skylar Burks.
