The Nextfest Nite Clubs are a series of multidisciplinary performance parties showcasing emerging artists in all disciplines – theatre, dance, film, performance art, visual art, installation and anything else! Performances range from 30 seconds to full evening installations and roving performances. For the purpose of this festival, “emerging” refers to artists under the age of 30 who are not professionally represented.
High-energy interdisciplinary collaborations, non-traditional experimental performance and performer created work encouraged. All performers must be at least 18 years old.
Each Nite Club has a theme that is open to interpretation.
The themes for 2013 are:
Friday, June 7:
The 5th Annual Rise Up! – For the politically inclined artist, Rise Up is your revolution – it’s the what-if, the could-be, the should-be, the will-be. Your revolution – it is politics and semantics, artistics and music. What fires you up, pisses you off, makes you passionate about the state of the world?
Saturday, June 8:
The 6th Annual Smut Cabaret – Risqué, sexy, lewd, vulgar… fetishes, desires, sexuality. Bring out your naughty side, taunt and tease, make your audience squirm.
Friday, June 14:
Awe(some)(ful) – The good and the bad. The heroes and the villains. The light and the shadows. The highs and the lows. The love and the hate. The awesome and the awful.
