FACE Contemporary Theater 2019

"Harlem Quartet" by Elise Vigier (Grantee 2018)

The 2019 application call for projects for FACE Contemporary Theater is now closed

Deadline for applications was until February 18, 2019 for projects taking place between June 1st, 2019 and August 31, 2020

FACE Contemporary Theater fosters innovative artistic collaborations and co-productions in theater, and contributes to a dynamic intercultural dialogue between France and the United States. It aims to encourage projects that push aesthetic boundaries and reflect the cultural and artistic diversity seen in theater today.

Theater projects include multidisciplinary and devised theater, young audience theater productions, contemporary circus, puppetry, and street/outdoors theater.

Detailed Information is available HERE  

NOTE: Since 2018, FACE Contemporary Theater has expanded 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 varied backgrounds and influences, in order to promote a multiplicity of voices and foster a rich intercultural dialogue.


FACE Contemporary Theater is a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States with the support from the Florence Gould Foundation, Institut français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture, and private donors. Special support for women artists has been provided by Fondation CHANEL.
