CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
Echo Productions is now accepting submissions for our newest project, Nostalgia: A Festival of Movement and Memory. This 1-day festival is a step towards our goal for 2020 – to explore the mental health epidemic sweeping our millennial generation through the safety of our community. We are calling on artists to submit 5-7 minute movement pieces exploring the theme of:
A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past.
To submit, please e-mail a short treatment of your piece and how it applies to the theme of Nostalgia to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional requirements include:
Maximum 1-4 performers
Movement-based with a strong narrative component
Successful applicants will receive 6 hours of rehearsal time (including 1 mentored rehearsal), along with a 1-hour tech/dress rehearsal in the performance space.
A final note: this is a community-based project, and our goal is to reinvest directly into our community. Echo Productions will not be turning a profit on this, and all participants should align with this goal. Any profits generated will be held in a brand-new Artists’ Trust, which will be accessible by application once per year to an artist whose has fallen and could use a helping hand to rediscover their worth. We would like to be as transparent about this initiative as possible, so click here for all the details.
