Performance Submissions

Submissions for our 2018 festival are now open!  All are welcome to submit and apply for a slot.  Each performance will get a 60 minute timeslot, curated by our Board of Directors.  

All performers, from any walk of life and all ideas are encouraged to apply.  Performers and submissions with an emphasis on diversity and highlighting voices from normally under-represented communities will take preference. 

We also look for those who will push their own artistic voices theatrically.  We are elevating the norm of storytelling and performance - you're no longer in a basement or back of a bar, you have a full stage and theatrical crew, take advantage!  

We will work to fit in as many submissions as possible, however a submission does not guarantee a performance slot.  We will follow up with a formal acceptance in the coming weeks.  

Deadline to submit is April 23rd, 2018

There is NO application fee this year.  This is in line with the Tank NYC's founding principles of making the arts more accessible and inclusive to everyone.  There will be no participation fee either.  

Performers will be compensated for their performances.  Performances will receive 25% of their ticket sales, and we will provide a more detailed artist contract upon acceptance.
