The New Maker Ensemble is looking for pieces in the shape of any kind of score or script, which can powerfully address the theme “system”. It must be up to 6 performers, and last up to 20 minutes. It will receive 9 rehearsals between April and June, and will be programmed along other works and performed in 3 concerts between the 12th and the 15th of July 2018 in major theatres in Funchal, Madeira Island, Portugal, as part of a larger project called SYSTEM 2 STAGES. We encourage you to visit the project’s main page at and read about the project and the theme before you apply.


1) Professional audiovisual documentation, whose products you will be free to use as you wish.
2) As part of the larger scope of the project, scores and scripts, along with other textual contributions, will be edited and published in a collection, an exemplar of which will be sent to all of those whose works will have been performed.
