Open Call for Choreographers
PUSH Dance Company seeks original, finished pieces of 5-8 minutes in length by emerging and mid-career choreographers to present at its 4th annual PUSHfest dance festival. This year's Festival will take place at ODC Theater (3153 17th Street, San Francisco, CA 94110), a premiere arts venue in San Francisco on September 22- 24, 2017.
PUSHfest is a mixed-genre dance festival that features works spanning a variety of performance genres and is open to choreographers working locally, nationally and internationally. From your submissions, our curatorial team selects fourteen compelling works to showcase on the big stage in one of two Festival programs.
PUSHfest's growing popularity yielded sold-out and near sold-out audiences for all four performances of the Festival in 2016. In addition to the opportunity to connect with large new audiences, the Festival provides a platform for choreographers to develop lasting relationships with Bay Area artists and art sector professionals. PUSHfest choreographers also benefit from increased visibility by way of PUSH Dance Company's widespread promotional campaign. For more information visit: www.pushdance.org/PUSHfest.
