Contemporary Performance Almanac 2015

DEADLINE NOVEMBER 13, 2014 11:59pm

Contemporary Performance is publishing the 2nd annual Contemporary Performance Almanac 2015, an overview of contemporary performance created or presented during the 2013/2014 season available for touring now. For each artists that joins the project, 1 book will be sent to an international presenter.

The book project is crowd-funded and open-source and once we have 100 artists, we will publish the book. Last year we had over 350 participating artists and companies!

Contemporary Performance Almanac 2015 will be published in January 2015. Once published, it will mailed to international presenters who are looking to invite touring work.

So often presenters do not have access to the work of artists that are outside the touring circuit. Contemporary Performance sees a need to give access to both artists and presenters to find each other and start new working relationships. The book will be a perfect bound 10″ x 7″ paperback book with each artist receiving a Black and White image and a full page listing. The book project is crowd-funded and open-source, each artist/company pays US$50 to help publish the book and send them to presenters and festivals.
