We strongly encourage artists from traditionally underrepresented or marginalized communities to apply. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, place and movement.

What we are looking for:
- Site-specific choreography
- Original choreography, in any genre, created for the stage
- Dance films of site-specific choreography
The Outlet features site-specific dances, dances for the stage, and dance films. Films will be shown on October 5, 2017 during the evening length Dance on Film portion of the Festival, in the beautiful Visitors' Center Screening Room of the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts. On October 7th, half of the festival's live performances takes place in the beautiful East Gallery of the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts. This year we are also seeking at least 2 proposals for work in conversation with Elyn Zimmerman's installation in the East Gallery. The other half is outdoors—in and around the 42-acre park that is Grounds For Sculpture.
We hope that you will consider applying and help us spread the word!
