FACE Contemporary Theater and FUSED Programs: Application Call 2018

      The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and FACE Foundation are pleased to announce that the new 2018 FACE Contemporary Theater and French U.S. Exchange in Dance (FUSED) program guidelines and application are now available online.

      American institutions as well as French institutions can apply until February 28, 2018, for projects taking place between June, 1, 2018 and July 2019.

      FACE Contemporary Theater and FUSED celebrate the shared love, and cross-pollination, of the performing arts in France and the United States.  

      Both the contemporary theater and dance programs support productions, residencies, and the presentation and touring of French artists in the United States as well as American artists in France. Special attention is given to projects involving artists whose work has rarely been seen in the partner country. Regarding tours, priority is given to tours that include a minimum of 5 performances in a minimum of 2 cities. Solid commitment towards communities are also encouraged.

      Both programs have expanded their reach beyond artists based in France and the United States to include projects by artists from Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East performing in the United States, as long as their work is co-produced by French cultural institutions. In this age of global mobility, the goal is to support artists with multifaceted backgrounds and influences, in order to promote a multiplicity of voices and foster a more varied intercultural dialogue. Each project is intended to reach a wide audience and to engage communities as well as act as a launching pad for the featured artists.
