Luminarium Dance will be hosting their second annual 24 Hour Choreofest! The festival will take place on Friday, August 16, 2013 through Saturday, August 17, 2013 at the Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA. Choreographers/Companies are strongly encouraged to apply for the chance to create work in a completely different environment and under unusual circumstances.
Dancers will spend a full 24 hours in the Dance Complex with a chance to create an original piece of work. All work must be created during this time period, no preconceived work is allowed! After the overnight creating process there will be a short production period in the morning followed by two performances on Saturday. Embrace the opportunity to push your creative limits and create something one of a kind! All proceeds of the Saturday matinee performance will be donated to a charity that focuses on providing arts-based experiences to underserved populations.
All applicants should apply by the May 17th deadline through the online application process. There is a $15 application fee and you will also need to include samples of your work. There will only be five companies chosen to participate in the festival and no solo work is being accepted at this time. Applications and a full description of expectations for the festival can be found at http://www.luminariumdance.org/choreofest-apply#!__choreofest-apply.
