VOILA 2019

Call for Proposals


London, UK

4 - 17 November 2019

W​illkommen​,​ bienvenue​,​ welcome: to all artists who identify as European. We want to hear about your show!

Voila! Europe is the annual theatre rendez-vous in London, bringing together British and European theatre makers. Our curated programme is a border-busting mix of multicultural, multilingual, and multidisciplinary performance.

At​ the​ time of writing this callout, we’re still unsure what Brexit has in store for us. But we mean to carry on as we always have, cultivating European theatre on UK stages, and we can’t wait to hear what you’ve got in store!

The Festival is a place for artists to take risks. We support individuals and companies to make a daring leap: presenting a new piece of work, touring to a new audience, or translating a play into a new language. Our previous programmes have included European creative collaborations, adaptations, bilingual comedies, devised theatre, solo performance, puppetry, clowning, circus, dance, music, stand-up, family shows, and more.

Join us for the 7th Voila! Festival taking place in London. As always, we’ll be at The Cockpit, our original birthplace in West London, and new this year, RichMix joins us with two​ performance​ spaces in East London! There are opportunities to develop a brand new piece in residency at the festival, to perform in thrust, in the round​,​ or end-on.

Deadline extended! Apply by 13th May 2019!
