Nextfest Nite Clubs Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions
Nextfest NiteClubs 2015
Curated by Beth Dart of Catch the Keys Productions

The Nextfest NiteClubs are a series of late night multidisciplinary performance parties showcasing emerging artists in all disciplines – theatre, dance, film, performance art, visual art, installation…everything goes!

Performances can range from 30 seconds to full evening installations and roving performances. For the purpose of this festival, “emerging” refers to artists under the age of 30 who are not professionally represented.

High-energy interdisciplinary collaborations, non-traditional experimental performance and performer created work encouraged. All performers must be at least 18 years old.

Each NiteClub has a theme that is open to interpretation.

The themes for 2015 are:

Saturday, June 6th: The 7th Annual Rise Up!
For the politically inclined artist, Rise Up is your revolution – it’s the what-if, the could-be, the should-be, the will-be. Your revolution – it is politics and semantics, artistics and music. What fires you up, pisses you off, makes you passionate about the state of the world?

Friday, June 12: Perceive/Deceive 
Projection. Perception. Misconception. Deception. What you sense is not what is. There are always three sides to the story, after all. Find your truth.

Saturday, June 13: The 8th Annual Smut Cabaret
Risqué, sexy, lewd, vulgar… fetishes, desires, sexuality. Bring out your naughty side, taunt and tease, make your audience squirm.
