LAST CHANCE! – DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 15TH
Fringe Performance Opportunity
NSN Conference – July 29 - August 1, 2010
Los Angeles, California
The Fringe @ the NSN is back for its 5th Season!
Explore the limits of storytelling at the National Storytelling Conference.
Want to present 55 minutes of your most compelling, riskiest, experimental or work in progress storytelling? How about a mini-fringe event with you and a friend in a pair of shorter performances? Just think of the possibilities: 55 minutes of folktales, autobiography, performance art, stand-up, puppetry, dance or your favorite long form story!
What is the Fringe? The NSN Conference Fringe follows the Fringe Festival model giving artists freedom to create and audiences "the ability to decide for themselves the truly great productions from the good, the bad and the gloriously disastrous." In keeping with the Fringe principle of an un-juried selection process, Fringe performers for the 2010 National Storytelling Network Conference will be selected by lottery at the 2009 National Storytelling Festival.
Growing networks of performance venues all over the world have adopted this model and many storytellers are taking advantage of these venues to reach new audiences. The Conference Fringe encourages more storytellers to participate in American and Canadian Fringe Festivals by providing the opportunity for you to experience many aspects of a typical Fringe Festival including the selection process and performance framework.
Deadline: September 15, 2009
