EF23 - Application.jpg

The Exponential Festival will return for its 8th season in 2023. We are accepting applications from performing artists and theatre-makers whose work pushes boundaries, crosses corners, can be considered experimental, innovative, or just plain weird. We are looking for applicants that want to premiere new works, vitally change or reimagine original shows by remounting them, or otherwise radically reinterpret forms, processes, or practices. 


For Exponential 2023, we are prioritizing shows with small creative teams (1 - 5 people) in order to better adapt to the evolving live performance + pandemic environment.


All performances will take place in January 2023, in Brooklyn venues and online on our YouTube channel. This application closes July 1.

We will consider: ​


  • Live shows in a physical shared space.

  • Live shows that happen on the internet.

  • Pre-recorded digital experiences made by those who normally identify as live performance artists. ​

  • The only rule, as always, is that you be an NYC-based artist. 

Here are the goodies you get by becoming an Exponential artist:​


  • An honorarium.

  • Press representation.

  • MFTA access.

  • Free technicians for split-bills.

  • Volunteer accident and general liability insurance if applicable.

  • Free photography and videography.

  • A box-office split (at live performance venues).

  • 100% box-office income (for online shows).

  • Bragging rights.

Send us your ideas for SHOWS! Luv to the Nth.
