The Upstart Festival ushers in fresh talent with an intriguing festival of performances and roundtable discussions. Artists have no more than three years of experience showing their work in New York City. Work will be produced as part of a two-day showcase in the BAX theater, Friday & Saturday February 7- 8 2014, and curated by dance/video artist and former BAX Artist In Residence Jillian Peña and Founding and Executive Director, Marya Warshaw.
