WestFest All Over 2019
ALL OVER WESTBETH
(April 27 - April 28 from 12-4:30PM)
Calling creative choreographers interested in investigating possibilities of modifying dance through the use of alternative spaces. Each artist will be assigned a unique space in and around the Westbeth building in which they will have the opportunity to rehearse and build a dance. We ask that artists create a 4-5 minute piece that can be performed multiple times for groups of audiences touring the sites.
On the day of the show, (April 27 and April 28) groups of audience members will be guided from site to site to see the dances all over the building. Past sites have included Westbeth’s inner and outer courtyards, long hallways, spiral staircases, the gallery space, boiler room, the rooftop, and the Martha Graham Studio Theater.
SELECTED ARTISTS WILL RECEIVE:
An opportunity to present site-specific work in an innovative space full of history.
Two (2) site-specific performances on Saturday, April 27 to Sunday, April 28, 2019.
Publicity and digital marketing materials for the event.
We require choreographers to be at all of the following meetings, rehearsals, as well as performance dates listed below. Only NY local submissions, please.
