STUFFED @ Judson // Call for Choreographic Proposals


STUFFED - Dinner and Dance with Bailout Theater // Judson Church

Hello Choreographers, Movement Authors, Filmmakers, and Everyone Else Outside the of Box:

STUFFED: Dinner and Dance is accepting choreographic proposals for the evening of Wednesday June 6, 2012 at Judson Church in New York City. Curators Carlye Eckert and John Sorensen-Jolink are looking for work (live or on film) that is innovative, well designed, bold, and captivating to be a part of what has quickly become a delicious performance event. Work can be finished or in-process but should be able to exist on its own.

STUFFED is a low tech, high visibility dance component of Bailout Theater, a performance platform created by Judson Church that responds to the financial crisis by providing an evening of free food and performance to the public. The evening begins with a home-cooked meal, good vibes, and even better people. Once the audience has indulged their bellies they can indulge in everything else with a selection of tasty entertainment. No cost, no catch, no proselytizing, no processed food.

What STUFFED offers selected choreographers:

A diverse audience: Access to a built-in audience that includes many people who have never seen dance before or do not see dance regularly. STUFFED has a strong audience base comprised of repeat Bailout Theater-goers, Judson Church community members, and many people who just walk in off the streets for a meal and live performance. STUFFED is not your usual NYC dance event. Your work will be seen by people with fresh and diverse viewpoints.

A cohesive, curated evening: STUFFED is a fully-produced evening that is not a festival-format. It is highly curated so that the evening makes sense and flows. We limit each event to five choreographers and aspire to create a succinct and cohesive evening.

Free Rehearsal: We are delighted to offer up to three hours of rehearsal time in Judson’s beautiful facilities in addition to a tech before the show.

How to submit a proposal:

--Email the following information to

-Name of choreographer(s)
-Title of work
-Number of performers in the work
-Tell us how you heard about STUFFED. Have you attended any Bailout Theater events in the past?

--Email a link to video footage of the work. This can be performance footage, or footage from a rehearsal yesterday. It should include as much of the work as possible. Please contact us if you do not have access to video and we will figure something out.

Submission Deadline: Tuesday May 8, 2012
