Capsule is a performing & performance art venue just south of downtown Kansas City in the eclectic Crossroads Arts District. Capsule serves as a platform to highlight emerging, contemporary, experimental, and hybrid performance practice.

Proposals for series programming to be considered for Capsule’s 2019 season should be submitted by 11:59 PM (Central Standard Time) on October 15th, 2018.

Proposals may be for ongoing series of contemporary arts programming including, but not limited to: original live performances (dance, theater, music, performance art, spoken word, etc.), sound installations, video screenings, literary readings/events, lectures, panels, conversations, workshops, or short festivals. For this deadline on October 15, proposals should focus on recurring series (example – poetry readings that occur every other Thursday night, etc.).


Please send a 1-2 page writeup of your proposal and be sure to include the following components:

  • A narrative synopsis
  • Relevant links to or embedded video, images, or sound clips as work samples
  • Project team list (with links to website, bios, or CVs)
  • Rough budget (please identify proposed need for budget from CSF as well as other additional funding sources)
  • Proposed dates or timeline (please indicate if timeline is critical or could be adjusted)
  • Please identify how long the series will run and what the cadence for programming would be (for example, a music showcase that happens once a month on the third Sunday every month for a year). If proposing a one-time event, please identify the scope of time needed for the installation and production of the project (for example, a month-long residency of a theatre company putting on a production 3 weeks in a row)

Submissions should come to in the form of a cover letter with PDF attachment of the full project proposal. The subject line should read CAPSULE OPEN CALL. For questions, please email
