BAX | Brooklyn Arts Exchange is excited to announce the
2016 Upstart Festival Participants

Friday, February 19 at 8:00pm 
and Saturday, February 20 at 8:00pm. 

The Upstart Festival ushers in fresh talent with an intriguing festival of performances. It gives creators of dance, theater and performance works, with no more than three years of experience showing their work in New York City, an opportunity to show work and facilitate networking opportunities that pave the way for fruitful artistic careers. Participating artists have access to developmental support and resources for their work through showings, feedback sessions, and roundtable discussions.

Originally the brain-child of Shannon Hummel (former BAX Artist In Residence), the festival is currently curated by dance/video artist and former BAX Artist In Residence Jillian Peña and Founding & Executive Director, Marya Warshaw.
