Call for Performers: National Storytelling Network Conference Fringe, July 2012, Cincinnati, Ohio

Fringe Performance Opportunity

NSN Conference – June 28 through July 1, 2012

Cincinnati, Ohio


The Fringe @ the NSN is back for its 6th 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 2012 National Storytelling Network Conference will be selected
by lottery.

 

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: August 31, 2011

Ok, I'm up for this.  Chloe of the Midnight Storytellers - now describing myself as a 'spoken word performer' and breaking out of traditional storytelling with ELECTRIC TALES. Features startling new versions of traditional tales plus original legends of our time; from the dangerous glamour of the Unseelie Court to USAF encounters with UFOs. Mixing live story, comedy and exquisite scraps of performance poetry. Accompanied by keyboard and sound effects gizmo. Hoping to go multi media by 2012... One wickedly humorous performer; one melting chocolate voice - and a classic English accent.
This is definitely intriguing, especially since I was looking for more excuses to attend the conference anyway. I will keep this in mind.
Be sure you go to the conference webpage, download the "Call for Fringe Performance Entries", and read the fine print! You need to understand how the conference fringe works, and how to submit your official entry.
@Tim E. : Fine print is exceedingly important. Thank you for the link.
