DANCENOW JOE'S PUB FESTIVAL
A CATALYST FOR CREATIVITY
Embracing the intimate and unconventional setting of Joe’s Pub, as a powerful means of encouraging the creative process, the DANCENOW JOE’S PUB FESTIVAL has become a testing ground for new ideas and direction, providing artists with a unique opportunity to experiment with their craft and create work for New York City’s “best tiny stage.” During the past decade, numerous dance innovators have taken a leap beyond the traditional stage – producing several critically acclaimed works, including Doug Elkins’s Fräulein Maria (2006-2008), David Parker’s ShowDown (2008-2009) and Misters and Sisters (2011), Nicholas Leichter’s The Whiz (2010) and Twenty Twenty (2012), Kyle Abraham’s Heartbreaks and Homies (2011), Monica Bill Barnes Snow Globe Show (2012) and Camille A. Brown’s One Second Past the Future (2012).

Additionally, we have commissioned several FESTIVAL CHALLENGE WINNERS (the artist who best meets our challenge to create a concise, clear and complete artistic statement in five minutes or less) to create full evening and shared evening works, including Takehiro Ueyama (2013), Adam Barruch (2013), Claire Porter (2014), Gregory Dolbashian (2014) and Deborah Lohse (2014).

DETAILS: Submit up to three proposals for five-minute or less works (solo, duet, trio, group) works. The artist honorarium for each five-minute or less work is 00. The FESTIVAL challenge winner will receive a ,000 creative development fee, a free week-long Silo Guest Artist residency on Kirkland Farm in Pennsylvania. Four additional challenge winners will be selected each night by the audience to receive a free weeklong DANCENOW Silo residency in conjunction with a performance opportunity in our DANCENOW SteelStacks program.
To submit your proposal, please email Sydney@dancenownyc.org
