The Center at West Park ~ The Evolution Festival


Deadline: May 26, 2023 at 5PM

The EVOLUTION FESTIVAL will present four original works of theater, dance, music, and interdisciplinary performance by NYC-based artists from September 4 to October 1, 2023, at The Center at West Park in New York City.

We are seeking existing works in progress that are ready to share with audiences but have not yet had a world premiere. Works should be evening-length: at least 45 minutes and not more than two hours.

Artists from historically underrepresented communities, including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and People of Color, LGBTQ+ folx, and people with disabilities are enthusiastically invited to apply. Above all, we are looking for fresh, urgent, personal work that won’t leave you alone.

Each artist will receive:

Three performances in The Center at West Park’s Sanctuary Space

Free and subsidized rehearsal space in Summer and Fall 2023

A performance fee of $1,200

A split of the box office after fee recoupment

Technical support, including a stage manager/board operator and technical director during the residency week

Ticketing management by CWP staff

Front of house staffing, including box office management and ushers

Promotional support, including website listing, press release feature, dedicated e-blasts and social media posts, and consultation on other marketing strategy

Photography and videography for performances
