Mark DeGarmo Dance seeks applicants for the 2020-2021 season of its Virtual Salon Performance Series, a showcase of original artistic works-in-progress with a facilitated audience response session. Performing artists are invited to apply via the above GoogleForm by Saturday, August 1st, 11:55PM. All Virtual Performances will be held on Zoom.

Founded in 2010, MDD's Salon Performance Series provides an opportunity to view and engage with original performing arts and dance works-in-progress of guest artists. The 2019-2020 season featured 51 artists/performers in 9 salons, the final 3 of which were held virtually on Zoom. 

The series highlights artists and performing art and dance forms underrepresented in traditional and commercial performing arts venues nationally and internationally. Artists from these underrepresented groups, genres, and spaces are especially encouraged to apply.

Dr. Mark DeGarmo curates the series and facilitates audience response sessions during each installment by adapting Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process. DeGarmo guides discourse among the artists and audience members and encourages the public to actively participate in the development of original works-in-progress.

Originally housed in Mark DeGarmo Dance Studio Theater 310 at The Clemente Center, where MDD has been an anchor resident member nonprofit organization since 2001, MDD’s Salon Performance Series works to support the Clemente’s mission, and its determination “to operate in a multicultural and inclusive manner, housing and promoting artists and performance events that fully reflect the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side and the city as a whole.”

Ticketing will be available at www.sps.givesmart.com at a later date.

About Mark DeGarmo

A graduate with a B.F.A. of the Juilliard School Dance Division and Union Institute & University’s Ph.D. program, DeGarmo has created, performed, and produced over 100 dance-theater works and led his company on 30 international tours to 13 countries. His work has been recognized with performing arts awards and honors from the Martha Hill Dance Fund, the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, the U.S. Department of State, and The White House. His transcultural transdisciplinary commitment includes writing “Transdisciplinary Performative Improvisation” for the University of Colima Mexico’s textbook Teaching Choreographic Composition from a Transdisciplinary Focus (2020 Spanish publication pending). He is also an artist-scholar of Creative Agency Australia. Las Fridas, Mark DeGarmo’s original duet inspired by Mexican painter and revolutionary Frida Kahlo, was called “Genius,” “Wonderfully in your face,” and “Frightening… in a way great art always should be,” by New York audiences in November 2019. Melanie Brown of Stagebuddy.com deemed DeGarmo “a gladiator in various arenas."

We are grateful that this program is supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY - LUMINOSITY - THE IMPACT OF LIGHT

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Light and its quality is the basic element of photography. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another.  Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh. A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches. 

For this call we are looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference. Glare, flare, shadow, fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen passing through a dusty atmosphere.  There are examples everywhere. Show us your shots where light is a key element.  All 2D photo mediums are welcome.

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY - STREET PHOTOGRAPHY 2020

Share

Country:

City:

Vivian Maier, an unknown, left behind a treasure of images she took while walking outside on time off. Cartier-Bresson, Frank, Meyerowitz, Arbus, Evans, the list of accomplished street photographers goes on. Their work captured a special essence of life, not posed, not set up but there in the streets, yards, avenues, porches... we pass every day. Images as compelling surround us as we walk or ride in the streets of our lives. The challenge for this contest is to shoot those street images that set them apart from snapshots.  Again - opportunities abound. Take your camera or phone outside with you and capture the odd juxtaposition of a passerby and a window decoration, a special look, a special split second moment of communication, a scene that conveys a message or feeling.  The examples are too numerous and varied to list.  All 2D photography is welcome.

Prize summary: 
$4000
Prizes Details: 

Grand Prize, $1100

First Prize - $400 x3

Second Prize - $325 x3

Third Prize - $250 x 3
