Invisible Artists Carnival 🎟️

The Invisible Artists Carnival is an immersive, travelling performance and film experience that fuses science-fantasy, circus, and disability culture. With robust accessibility built into process and performance, the show presents a threadbare Caravan as the deceptive cover for a world of mobile cinema, aerial wizardry and shared ritual.


Invisible Artists Carnival Calls for Submission


When the Carnival rolls into a neighbourhood as darkness falls, mysterious magic will be unleashed in a live spectacle (suitable for all ages) as the group attempts to make contact with The Artist, a legendary many faced figure who vanished several years ago. EYELEVEL Gallery is bringing this incredible project and its core team of creators (The Other Hearts Collective and Erin Ball) from Toronto to Halifax to work with local artists also from Mad, Deaf, Chronically Ill and Disability communities. The Other Hearts team will collaborate and train with local artists to perform alongside them in an interactive experience that is rooted in accessibility. In addition, a new short video work will be created based on the city that the carnival travels to, giving context to “The Artists” in relation to the Carnival.

FEE:  $20/hr, 5hrs/day, 4 days a week for 6 weeks per artist


  • Application Deadline: June 19th, 2023
  • 2nd stage interviews: Between June 20th 2023 and July 20th,2023

Throughout the weekend, there will also be opportunities to socialize with fellow thespians and enjoy the hospitality and entertainment of our vibrant little town.

We have a beautiful venue arranged, Convocation Hall at Mount Allison University, on the weekend of Nov 3 – 5, 2023. The cost will be very reasonable at $100 per performance entered in the Festival plus $10/person, cast and crew.
