Apres Avant Garde Festival – Open Call and Information

Day de Dada, the Staten Island Performance Art Collective has announced an open call for their Apres Avant Garde Festival on the Staten Island Ferry, occurring October 1, 2017.

The event will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 5th annual Avant Garde Festival that happened for 24 hours on the September 30, 1967 Staten Island Ferry.

The Apres Avant Garde Festival will have elements of the original festival- dance, music, video and interactive performance.

Have a strange costume idea, short dance, music or word piece? Join our event! Artists and performers are encouraged to submit performance concepts for inclusion in the event. Work that is non-obtrusive, interactive, accessible, inclusive and participatory is encouraged. Your audience will be people of all ages and backgrounds.
