Seeking theatre makers, new works, performance artists, buskers, multimedia encounters, interdisciplinary artists and more for outdoor, open air festival in downtown Cleveland July 22-24, 2021.

As the reopening of indoor theatre venues remains uncertain, we’ve reimagined the 2021 BorderLight Festival as an outdoor event, with safety protocols overseen by public health advisors and in compliance with regional event reopening guidelines.

Performances will take place across outdoor stages, tentsgreen spaces and other open-air locations to allow for social distancing, as well as interactive remote and streaming options to enjoy from home or live, whether as viewers or in interactive ways.

The BorderLight Fringe is the open call submission part of the Festival­­—application is free, there is no risk to submit. Ticketed shows will be paid through a 70/30 box office split (70% going to artists). The Festival welcomes work from both established and emerging companies—we look forward to hearing from you!
