PERFORMERS WANTED: 2017 Winter Follies

You might show a spanking new work-in-progress, or something old and beloved from your vast performance repertory. Maybe even something improvisational? We love work that is wildly experimental as well as work that comes out of a well-honed tradition. Could be a solo or group work. Whatever you choose to present, however, think minimal (read “zero”) additional set-up and/or strike time. Your 5 minutes includes walking on, performing, and then clearing off. Everything else is fair game…

At the end of each show, the audience votes for the artist or group that they would like to see a whole evening production of next year. The “People’s Choice” grand prize winner at the end of the weekend will receive 50 hours of free rehearsal space and a full weekend production at the “new” Gowanus. (Additionally, many Winter Follies artists are also invited to perform at other paid Spoke gigs in the Spring, including the annual Local Produce Festival in June.)

Eligibility: Participants must be at least 21 years old and be”professional” performers.
