Triskelion Arts believes in the power of funny, especially when it comes to dance. We are seeking movement-based work under 15 minutes that tickles a varied adult audience's collective funny bone for the eighth annual Comedy in Dance Festival. Guest curated by Abby Bender, the festival will run March 23 - 26, 2017 at 8pm. Each evening’s program will consist of several works by various artists, and each selected piece will be presented one to three times throughout the festival, at the discretion of the curator. In addition to stand-alone pieces, excerpts of work up to 15 minutes, as well as very short works, are encouraged to apply. All applications will be reviewed, and pieces will be chosen on the basis of quality of work and appropriateness for the event.
All festival participants will be alloted a 15- to 45-minute tech time after 5pm on Monday, March 20th, Wednesday, March 22nd, or on the date of the first performance.
To submit a piece for the Comedy in Dance Festival, please fill out the form on the following pages completely, no later than January 25, 2017. A reminder that your work sample is very important. You may be contacted for further information. Participation in the festival will be announced by the end of January. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
The Comedy in Dance Festival is NOT a paid opportunity but there is no cost to apply or participate. Festival participants will receive free admission to all Comedy in Dance Festival performances in which they are not performing, and a non-transferable ticket to a future TA Presents show of their choice in 2017.
