On July 21st and 22nd, we will be bringing back the Yugen in Action new works festival we began last year in our 37th season. Yugen in Action is a thematically linked series of performances. It gives local artists a space to present their works to audiences and to inspire one another. Last year six groups representing over 20 artists presented work on the themes of alienation and othering. This year, the themes of Yugen in Action are the Transformative, the Esoteric, and the Chemical.
4-6 selected artists or groups will each receive two hours of tech and two 20-minute max performance time-slots. Some questions to consider for submission: How do we translate our art into action? What is our place as artists in the American conversation about change and transformation? What will we look like, sound like, become — after we’ve transformed?
