HELLO, BEAUTIFUL incredible Humans!
Is it a FESTIVAL of NEW WORK, you’re looking for?!
The CALL OUT for Scene + Heard 2024 is now OPEN and we are accepting submissions until SUN OCT 1. Last year’s festival was our biggest and best yet with over 550 artists showcasing their incredible work and we cannot wait to see what wild weird wonderful creations you have been cooking up for next year.

Our call out is simple: we ask ARTISTS from all over the country for their most outrageous, imaginative, enthusiastic, multi-genre, awe-inspiring, tear-inducing, laughter-medicinal, audience-wowing ideas to tantalise our theatre tastebuds and catapult your brain waves on to our stages. Our one caveat – this must be new work, never before seen- it’s first outing onto a stage, in front of an audience.

We programme excerpts of work (usually 10-25 mins) from all genres and often multi-hyphenated hybrids of all of the live performance arts – be it music, dance, comedy, theatre, improv, spoken word, sonic art, drag, circus, aerial, puppetry, rehearsed readings, youth and children’s theatre.
