There are a variety of activities through which to experience the work of these emerging and established artists – short and long works, multiple showings, as well as special events:

 

Opening Reception:  April 8, Monday following performance at The Flea Theater, an artist/audience gathering to celebrate the Festival.

 

Breakfast Mix: April 11, Thursday 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM at The Flea Theater. Join us for breakfast and “Out of Town Artists’ Forum and Performance Away: Beyond The Site of Production” – A panel discussion facilitated by Robert Tyree, Mix artist and writer from Portland, Oregon, with guest artist Jaamil Kosoko, Producing Associate - Humanities and Engagement at New York Live and a panel of Mix national and international artists. The panel will discuss:  How does performance circulate? What moves work beyond its site of production—and to what end? Can artists and organizations outside major markets thrive in minor market conditions—perhaps through regional performance circuits—to counter the sometimes meager incentives of one city, one weekend runs? What good does it do to “leave home”? Following the Panel, we will enjoy a performance of an excerpt from Mayday’s Goodbye. Breakfast Mix is hosted by the Cultural Government of Quebec in New York.

 

Closing Party: Sunday, April 14 following the 3 PM performance at The Flea Theater. Join us at the NDA loft, just a 10- minute walk from The Flea Theater, where we’ll share Tapas Españolas and Sangria, with a splash of flamenco performed by La Meira, and our annual silent auction (bring your checkbook, please).
