Embracing the intimate and unconventional setting of Joe’s Pub, as a powerful means of encouraging the creative process, the DANCENOW JOE’S PUB FESTIVAL has become a testing ground for new ideas and direction, providing artists with a unique opportunity to experiment with their craft and create work for New York City’s “best tiny stage.”
Over the past decade DANCENOW has commissioned several FESTIVAL CHALLENGE WINNERS (the artist who best meets our challenge to create a concise, clear and complete artistic statement in five minutes or less) to create full evening and shared evening works, including Takehiro Ueyama (2013), Adam Barruch (2013), Claire Porter (2014), Gregory Dolbashian (2014), SARA du Jour and Deborah Lohse (2014).
Submit up to three proposals for five-minute or less works (solo, duet, trio, group) works.
Artist honorarium for each five-minute or less work is $300.
The FESTIVAL challenge winner will receive a $1,500 creative development fee, a free week-long Silo Guest Artist residency on Kirkland Farm in Pennsylvania. Four additional challenge winners will be selected each night by the audience to receive a free week long DANCENOW Silo residency in conjunction with a performance opportunity in our DANCENOW SteelStacks program.
We Look Forward To Your Artistic Adventuring!
