After a successful inaugural season, BEAT Festival organizers will announce its second annual lineup of innovative emerging Brooklyn artists in theater, dance and voice on Thursday, July 25th, 11 a.m. at La Defense Bakery & Bistro with a performance from street dance legend Storyboard P. The festival will be held from September 12-21, with a focus on site-specific, journey-based performances in non-traditional venues spanning four Brooklyn communities. Performances – including artist mashups, flex dancing, an Odyssey Works piece for one person and much more – will pop up throughout Downtown Brooklyn, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Park Slope and Prospect Heights, injecting culture into unusual spaces.
