Alliance for Jewish Theatre’s 2021 Theatremacher Application Information

Are you an 18 – 36 year old Theatremaker?

Alliance for Jewish Theatre’s 2021 Virtual Conference is Sunday, October 24 through Tuesday, October 26, 2020. AJT seeks applicants for its Theatremacher program for artists between 18-36 years old.

Theatremacher Application Form

In 2014, Alliance for Jewish Theatre introduced the Theatremachers program, a fellowship for young theatre makers ages 18 – 36 years old. Since that inaugural year, AJT has continued to connect to the theatremakers of the next generation. Each year, AJT accepts applicants to participate in the conference and gain membership into AJT.

If you are a theatre artist between 18-36 years old and creating, making, acting, or working on Jewish theatre, we’d love for you to apply. Applicants chosen for the 2021 Theatremacher program will be given an all-access-pass to the 2021 Virtual Conference and a one-year AJT membership for only $18. Theatremachers can apply and be accepted for up to 2 years. Previous Theatremachers interested in continuing into the 2021-2022 cohort, should submit an application form again this year.

The 2020 Theatremacher cohort gained access over the year to additional free programming including: Machers & Makers (watch parties and Q&A sessions with some of the leading artists that emerged from the pandemic including Russian Troll Farm and Theatre in Quarantine); Menschs & Mentors (Q&As with leading Jewish theatre makers including Melia Bensussen AD of Hartford Stage and Adam Immerwahr AD of Theater J); Community Conversations (discussions about Jewish identity with the cohort); the Theatremacher Macher Lab (a playwright development opportunity exclusive to AJT Theatremachers); and a Clown Workshop (led by Danielle Levsky).

We strongly encourage accepted Theatremachers to attend at least 50% of AJT’s Theatremacher Events throughout the year, in order to make the most of the Theatremacher experience. The programs listed above are a sampling of what will be offered. In addition to the 2021 Virtual Conference and yearly programming, we will also offer a showcase opportunity around the time of the 2022 Conference. The 2022 Conference will hopefully be a hybrid of both in-person and online events.

The Theatremacher cohort is led by Illana Stein, AJT’s Theatremacher Program Director, Jeremy Aluma, AJT’s Executive Director, and a cohort of AJT’s board that serve on the Theatremacher Planning Committee.

Applications open up on Sunday, September 12 and close on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 11:59pm Pacific Time. We highly encourage BIPOC, Jews of Color, LGBTQ, Neuro-Diverse, and international artists to apply. Artists accepted into the 2021 Theatremacher program will be notified on or before Tuesday, October 5, 2021.

Once accepted, Theatremachers should complete the 2021 Virtual Conference Registration form and pay $18:
