The Nextfest Nite Clubs are a series of late night multidisciplinary performance parties showcasing emerging artists in all disciplines including theatre, dance, film, performance art, music, visual art and more. For the purpose of this festival, “emerging” refers to artists under the age of 30 who are not professionally represented.
Performances may range in length from 30 seconds to full evening installation performances. High energy interdisciplinary collaborations, non-traditional performance and performer created work encouraged. Please note: all performers must be at least 18 years old.
Each Nite Club presents a theme to tie the performances together. The themes are open to interpretation.
The themes this year are:
Friday, June 8: The 4th 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’s politics and semantics, artistics and music.
Saturday, June 9: The 5th Annual Smut Cabaret
Risqué, sexy, and lewd, The Smut Cabaret explores your wildest fetishes and desires, and dares you to explore and play with your sexuality. Bring out your naughty side, taunt and tease, make your audience squirm.
Saturday, June 16: Fairytales and Nightmares
Dig deep into your imagination and subconscious. Dust off the cobwebs from your bad dreams, childhood memories and forgotten fantasies.
