Since 2009, the Upstart Festival has ushered in fresh talent with an intriguing festival of performances and roundtable discussions.
Designed to give creators of dance, theater and performance works, who have no more than three years of experience showing their work in New York City, an opportunity to show work and to facilitate networking opportunities that pave the way for fruitful artistic careers.
Originally the brain-child of Shannon Hummel (former BAX Artist In Residence), the festival is currently curated by dance/video artist and former BAX Artist In Residence Jillian Peña and Founding & Executive Director, Marya Warshaw.
NEW TO 2016:
Additional developmental support through artists showings and feedback will be available to participating artists to enhance roundtable discussions and support resources for artists and their work.
