GTF 2022 - Open Call

29th April – 7th May 2022

Deadline For Applications: 18th October, 2021 @ 10PM

 The last 18 months have been unprecedented, months of cancelled performances, of reduced horizons and restricted movements. In 2021, we produced a nine day digital festival. The country is now starting to open up and we are looking forward to welcoming audiences back into theatres and perhaps in some non - traditional spaces. We can't predict what the future holds however Galway Theatre Festival is looking ahead now to Festival 2022 and we can’t wait to welcome old and new friends.

 Festivals are places of experimentation and inquiry. In the spirit of experimentation, we are looking for work that is innovative in its creation and delivery. For our Festival 2022, we are looking for artists and performers who think outside the box . We want work that uses traditional theatre spaces and unconventional spaces, site specific work and also outdoor work. As we welcome audiences back in person we also welcome digital work. Everything is welcome – entirely digital delivery, semi-digital work- incorporating technology in the presentation and in-person presentations. Performance experienced through headsets or computers, smartphones or ‘in the flesh’.

If you have an idea you would like to discuss with the GTF Team before submitting, please get in touch with Aoife Noone (Festival Director) and Aoife Delany Reade (General Manager) at
