Call for Artists – NextFest 2017 Trash Gala NiTE Club
The Orange Girls + The Donna’s are in search of collaborators to present or perform at The TRASH GALA nightclub hosted on June 2, 2017 at The Roxy on Gateway this coming Nextfest.
THEME: Black Tie Trash
DEADLINE: February 15, 2017
CONCEPT: The nightclub will be presented as a linear show happening throughout the night, as opposed to the tradition museum style event. The nightclub follows a dysfunctional family as they attempt to throw a grand dinner party for all to attend. As the night progresses, the family spirals, and it becomes clear that the night, the decorations, and everything else are just cheap knockoffs and trash: the hors d’oeuvres are broken toy pieces, there’s a squire announcing guests arrivals incorrectly and incoherently, etc.
Each collaboration would be advancing the family’s roving storyline throughout the night, each group allotted a space. The spaces can be specified by the group, or suggested by the curators. The artists would be responsible for creating an installation, gallery, short performance, all sensory space, or whatever they dream up. Send us whatever may come to your mind. We’re looking for weird, warped, and wonderful!
TO SUBMIT: Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: Nextfest Nite Club Submission, with an outline of your piece, a brief description of your/your company’s past work, the number of people involved, and any other pertinent information. Be open, be honest, include as much or as little as you’d like.
**WANT TO BE INVOLVED BUT DON’T HAVE A PITCH? Drop us a line! We’re looking for people to fill a few pre-determined roles, and some helping hands out there!**
