And here's her announcement:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am embarking on an exciting collaboration with Dixon Place--an artist theater located in the heart of the Lower East Side, NY--and need your help!
I will be curating a show on October 16 (7:30pm), with a focus on presenting works from female, Latina performers (dance, music, poetry, performance art, etc). I am reaching out to you for your recommendations and suggestions as to who would have an interest in and would be a good candidate for this event. My goal is to find 4 to 6 diverse female, Latina artists from all over New York and beyond to take part in DP's first ever event of this kind!
Dixon Place is a non-for-profit organization that was established in 1986 and has remained true to it's mission since its inception - to support and nurture the development of new work and work in progress from diverse artists and to build new audiences for their work. I encourage you to visit www.dixonplace.org to read its mission statement in its entirety and to familiarize yourself with the theater and its diverse and interesting programming.
Those artist chosen to perform at this event will get the opportunity to present a 10-15 minute work, receive a small artist stipend, an hour of free non-tech rehearsal, plus an hour-long tech rehearsal on the day of the show.
PLEASE help me spread the word around so that talented female Latina artists can present and share their work and expand their audience!
