2018 FESTIVAL AT JOE's PUb AT THE PUBLIC
DANCE NOW is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2018 DANCE NOW Festival. Acclaimed for its adventurous short-takes format, the DANCE NOW Festival presents a diverse array of works by some of today’s most exciting dance makers. The 23rd season of this lively fall festival will feature 40 emerging and established choreographers, including DANCE NOW veterans and festival newcomers. The Festival’s zany host is TruDee (aka Deborah Lohse). The 2018 festival will take place Wednesday to Saturday, September 5–8, at 7pm, at Joe’s Pub at The Public. A special encore performance will be presented on Thursday, September 27, at 7pm.
The annual DANCE NOW Festival offers a unique challenge for artists: to create a clear and complete artistic statement in five minutes or less for the specifics of the stage at Joe’s Pub. Each year, the festival producers select ten artists whose work best meets the festival challenge to participate in an encore performance. The overall challenge winner receives a $1,500 development stipend and a weeklong creative residency at DANCE NOW Silo on Kirkland Farm in Bucks County, PA.
DANCE NOW Festival tickets are $20 in advance/$25 at the door. Festival Discount Package: Buy two or more shows at $16 each. Encore tickets are $25 in advance/$30 at the door. Tickets can be purchased by phone at 212-967-7555, online at joespub.com, and in person at the Public Theater box office from 2pm to 6pm.
