Mark DeGarmo Dance seeks applicants for the 2021-22 season of its Virtual Salon Performance Series, a showcase of original artistic works-in-progress with a facilitated audience response session. Performing artists are invited to apply via the above GoogleForm by Tuesday, August 31st, 11:59PM ET. Performances may be hosted on Zoom, in the NYC studio theater, or as a hybrid experience.

Founded in 2010, MDD's Salon Performance Series provides an opportunity to view and engage with original performing arts and dance works-in-progress of guest artists. The 2020-21 season (including MDD’s Virtual International Arts Festivals in October 2020 and March 2021) featured the work of 263 artists/performers from 23 countries and 16 U.S. states in 12 virtual salons.

Dr. Mark DeGarmo curates the series and facilitates audience response sessions during each installment by adapting Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process. DeGarmo guides discourse among the artists and audience members and encourages the public to actively participate in the development of original works-in-progress.

Originally housed in Mark DeGarmo Dance Studio Theater 310 at The Clemente Center, where MDD has been an anchor resident member nonprofit organization since 2001, MDD’s Salon Performance Series works to support the Clemente’s mission, and its determination “to operate in a multicultural and inclusive manner, housing and promoting artists and performance events that fully reflect the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side and the city as a whole.”

Ticketing will be available in Fall 2021.
