New Ohio Theatre presents


This year we are looking for projects that are conceived specifically with anticipated Covid restrictions in mind. We are operating under the assumption that we will have access to our physical space but with evolving Covid compliance guidelines (Equity & City & State), including capacity restrictions. So, the idea is to move away from the 100% on-line presentations of IF2020 into some new performative space relationships - to be imagined by you!

ICE FACTORY 2021 is the 28th annual edition of our Obie Award-winning summer festival of new work. Artists and companies interested in participating in Ice Factory 2021 should submit their applications by February 15, 11:59 PM EST.

There are no fees to participate in ICE FACTORY.

Productions from companies and artists based in the U.S. will be given preference.

During Ice Factory, each participating company has access to:

-Three days of exclusive technical rehearsals in the space: Sunday - Tuesday.
- Up to three days of exclusive technical rehearsals in the space.
- Up to four performances in the space.
- Use of the New Ohio's festival rep plot for light and sound.
- Run crew and production assistance from the Ice Factory Intern Crew.
- Other project specific needs addressed individually.
- A guaranteed artist fee.
- Festival press representation by DARR Publicity.

To apply for ICE FACTORY 2021, use the link above to upload a packet that includes:

-1 page (max) description of the project.  What is the project about? What is the audience’s relationship to the performance?
-1 page (max) description of where you are in your process and your plans for the project beyond IF.
-1 page (max) on the background on your company and/or bios of the lead artists
- Photos, press, and links to video of previous work  (Or links to websites.)

Your packet should all be in one document in .pdf format.

Do NOT submit a script.  We will request a script if necessary.
