We're interested in solo and group acts that engage audiences and do not require any technical support. If the words avant garde mean anything these days, we're looking for it. Flamboyant performers with an edge to their characters, and/or something a little bit naughty may be the perfect fit. Our Fall Gala will be held in Anita's Way, the pass-through between 4 Times Square and 1 Bryant Park. This is a public space, open 24 hours and we encourage potential participants to go take a look. This will be the grand opening event for the space itself, which may bring additional attention and press. The audience will be a mix of real estate professionals and cultural supporters. chashama serves the New York community by adopting temporarily vacant properties and converting them arts hubs and performance spaces where curious audiences as well as interested passers-by can experience new forms of art. Selected performers will need to attend an event orientation prior to September 21, and be in character for the duration of the event (6-9p). Performer's stipends will be offered, as well as a meal at the end of the night. To apply, email your resume, a brief description of what you would like to do at the event, and links to images or video of previous performances.
Deadline to apply: August 15. Contact: diane.chashama(
