Open Call - FlashArt 2024

The Rialto Theater announces the opening of applications for the FlashArt program in 2024. Since the introduction of the program in 2020, the Rialto Theater has highlighted and supported 41 productions and more than 190 artists. The program was embraced by the artistic community of Cyprus as it contributed to the overcoming of enormous difficulties during the pandemic, but also in highlighting producers from different fields of the performing arts.

The program was instituted in 2022 as an annual event and its evolution so that beyond the artistic interest it condenses messages and social issues of the time.

For the fifth edition, its goals are expanded even further, as beyond the highlighting of contemporary creators and projects, audience development, education, and inclusiveness are added. The program aspires not only to strengthen the possibilities of production, visibility, and promotion of domestic artists but also to strengthen diversity, extroversion, and exchange in interdisciplinary fields of art.

All interested parties may submit their proposals, including new or existing productions (dated after 2022), that deal with wider social issues requiring greater visibility, that motivate and involve the citizens. The running time of the submitted performances must be between 40’ and 90’ minutes.

The performances may either take place inside the Rialto Theatre or outdoors, as part of its summer events.

The selected productions shall benefit from the following services:

  1. Financial support of the production

  2. Free use of the Theatre 

  3. Material and immaterial infrastructure

  4. Promotion and advertisement

The primary objective of this edition remains to provide support to the artistic production, by encouraging Cyprus-based artists, performers and creators who combine performing arts with digital or other forms of art. 

The selection criteria are the following: artistic value, originality, ability to communicate the creative process and presentation of the final work. The connection between various artistic fields with the use of technology will also be considered.

The selected projects will be presented between May – December 2024.

The deadline for submissions is January 14, 2024. The application form may be found online at . 

Applications may be submitted by natural persons, organizations, collaborations, and institutions.

All applications will be evaluated by a selection committee and the management of the Rialto Theatre. The selected projects shall be informed before February 16, 2024.
