Philadelphia January 15-19, 2019

Fashion Machine, Theatre SKAM, Canada, Off-IPAY Showcase 2018

Off-IPAY was a huge success at Showcase 2018! Thank you to the artists and agents who presented performances.


Submissions are closed for Off-IPAY 2019.
Get your work seen in 2019 by hundreds of IPAY Showcase delegates!

Off-IPAY 2019 presents an opportunity for Artists, Producers, and Agents, to present an official Independent Showcase Performance. This initiative increases the number of productions available for Showcase delegates and increases opportunities for member artists to showcase their work.

Note: Off-IPAY independent productions might include full-length productions, pitch sessions, and/or a group of artistic companies organized around specific cultural region or genre.

Artists, Producers and Agents who wish to present an official Off-IPAY Independent Showcase must:

  • Be a current IPAY Member through Showcase 2019.
  • Register for the full IPAY 2019 Showcase as an EXHIBITOR (or have Agency representation and register as a DELEGATE). Note: Registration will be open in September. See 2019 Registration Rates here.
  • Be completely responsible for all production and expenses related to independent showcases: including and not limited to venue hire, production and technical aspects, promotion, appropriate insurance, etc.
  • Agree to provide access for all registered IPAY Delegates to the performance (within venue capacity restrictions).
  • Pay a fee of $250 which includes a 50-word listing in the official IPAY program and on the Showcase website. The listing must include: a production photo, performance title, artistic company, age range, capacity, venue, show time(s), whether tickets and/or reservations are required, contact phone and email. Note: all independent producers are responsible for managing reservations if they are required.
  • Schedule the Independent Showcase Performances only during the specific time periods sanctioned by IPAY. Failure to comply with official scheduling could result in removal of show from IPAY listings. 
  • Schedule Off-IPAY Independent Showcase Performance in a Philadelphia venue.
  • Submit an online Off-IPAY application before the deadline of November 1st, 2018, 5pm EST.
