BYOV Only ("Bring Your Own Venue" option for Site Specific Work)
Boulder Fringe will accept applications for Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) productions for site-specific work only. A site-specific production is a show that makes use of a particular venue to further the artistic vision of the performance. It is for shows that require a specific location and that would lose artistic value if produced in a typical theatrical space.

Applicants must submit a one-page project proposal by February 23, 2019 which includes:

  •  Your proposed venue
  •  Short show description/synopsis
  •  Answer the question: Why this show in this particular space?
  •  If applicable, list any other artists/companies you plan on sharing the space with

 

Proposed venues should be within reasonable distance of the main Fringe site so that audiences can easily travel between shows. BYOV applications that are too far away will not be accepted. Please contact info@boulderfringe.com if you have questions about this.

We require that you schedule performances starting no earlier than 12 noon and ending by no later than 10pm on any given day, to keep shows in the same time window for Box Office coverage. The scheduling of ALL shows begins the evening of Thursday, AUGUST 15th and runs through Sunday, AUGUST 25th - 2019 (ALL shows must be done by 6pm).

BYOV applicants will be informed by February 19, 2019, if they have been accepted into the festival.

You may not submit more than one BYOV application to the Boulder Fringe.

Applications will be reviewed by the Boulder Fringe and accepted based on the degree of site-specificity.

If accepted, BYOV companies must provide a signed agreement with the proposed venue by May 1, 2019.

If accepted, BYOV companies agree to provide Fringe Festival staff reasonable access to the venue upon request, to ensure that the venue is safe for audiences, performers and volunteers and that it meets the standards of the Boulder Fringe.

It is strongly recommended that all potential BYOV applicants contact info@boulderfringe.com before submitting their application.

If you chose a BYOV, please provide a description of the venue you hope to use.
If you are accepted in a BYOV slot, you are responsible for securing your venue, your technician and any technical equipment your show might need.
