Upstart Festival

Upstart Festival Application

The Upstart Festival ushers in fresh talent with an intriguing festival of performances and roundtable discussions. We seek dance, theater and performance works by artists who have no more than three years of experience showing their work in New York City. Artists MUST BE New York City based. Work will be produced as part of a three-day showcase in the BAX theater, Friday , Saturday & Sunday February 6-9 2015, and curated by dance/video artist and former BAX Artist In Residence Jillian Peña and Founding and Executive Director, Marya Warshaw.
