Nextfest Nite Clubs 2014
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.
Each Nite Club has a theme that is open to interpretation. We are looking for high-energy interdisciplinary collaborations, non-traditional experimental performance and performer created work encouraged. All performers must be at least 18 years old.
The themes for 2014 are:
Friday, June 6: The 6th 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?
Friday, June 13: The Fright Nite Club
A little blood? Some gore, maybe? A goodnight ghost story to keep your imagination up long after the lights have cut out? Feel that old witch Fear walk her bony fingers the length of your spine, force your hairs to stand on end. Tell us what scares you most. Please note: please mention in your submission if you plan to use fake blood. We are big fans of fake blood, but prefer you use the Catch the Keys secret recipe only.
Saturday, June 14: The 7th Annual infamous Smut Cabaret
Risqué, sexy, lewd, vulgar… fetishes, desires, sexuality. Bring out your naughty side, taunt and tease, make your audience squirm.

- An explanation of your piece;
