Due May 22
Email all Submissions to: submissions@exquisiteCorpseCompany.com

The world of the Vienna Secession will be brought to life in an immersive artscape of visual and performance experiences. The plays will tell the stories behind the paintings, inside the minds and lives of the artists and the worlds they portray.

Look at the paintings, see which ones interest you.

Clicking on a painting will take you to a page with further information on the artist and the painting.

Choose a painting and write your play.

Your play should be no more than 15 minutes.

Your play should incorporate some of the biography of the artist and explore what it means for the piece to come alive. Who are the women that haunt these works? What story does the work tell? What other characters would appear?

Playwrights are not limited to one painting. Write for as many or as few paintings as moves you.
