DanceNOW Joe's Pub Festival
DANCENOW is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2014 DANCENOW Joe’s Pub Festival. This eclectic showcase will feature performances by forty choreographers and their companies over four evenings from September 3 to 6, with an encore performance on September 13. The 2014 lineup of artists and companies features fan favorites, including festival veterans and returning artists, alongside today’s rising stars and festival newcomers.
A testing ground for the development of new work, the DANCENOW Joe’s Pub Festival centers around a unique challenge for artists: to create a clear and complete artistic statement of five minutes or less for the specifics of the stage at Joe’s Pub. Each night, audiences select the work of one artist as their ‘challenge winner’ to receive a weeklong creative residency at DANCENOW Silo on Kirkland Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. DANCENOW’s producers and advisors will select one additional artist whose work overall best meets the DANCENOW Challenge to receive a $1,500 development stipend and a weeklong creative residency at DANCENOW Silo on Kirkland Farm. The top ten audience favorites, including the five challenge winners, will be featured in the Encore program on September 13.
