The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is now accepting proposals for original performance works by artists and collectives from or currently living in the Greater Cincinnati area for the 2014 Summer Performance Series. This series is designed to celebrate the diversity of the local artist community, encourage the development of live art in the region, and provide opportunities for artists to showcase new projects and/or works nearing the end of their development.
Working in parallel with the CAC’s Black Box Performance Series, we ask artists to take bold risks while surprising themselves and the audience. All performance works will be considered, though a preference towards the multidisciplinary, and those that challenge the artist’s norms, will be of significant interest. Projects will be selected through a proposal process, with an emphasis on new works in development and/or emerging artists. Each artist will work with the CAC performance team to prepare and execute their performance. The CAC will provide the space, load-in and day-of support, marketing, sound equipment, and projector, if needed.
The Summer Performance Series will occur from 7 - 9PM each Monday during the month of August 2014 within the CAC Black Box, located in the Lower Level. Each evening, two artists from the series will be given the room to realize their productions. A stipend of $350 will be provided for each project for creative and developmental support.
• All proposals must be submitted via email, and received by 5PM, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 2014.
