BACK ALLEY ANTICS 2017 — CALL FOR PERFORMERS

Free Flow Dance Theatre Company is going to be coordinating another guerilla type arts event this summer called Back Alley Antics 11 and we are looking for people who are interested in getting involved. The date will be Saturday July 8 th gathering our audience at 6:30pm with a walking tour starting at 7pm. The event will take place in the 33 rd Street Business District area this year!


Here is the basic idea:
Back Alley Antics- a site specific show of strange and wonderful dance and other performance based art forms that takes place in various locations in the back alley ways in Saskatoon. (map of the designated area will be provided to interested parties)
Audience members will be invited to gather at a designated spot at 6:30pm and will be given a map which they will follow “en masse” to the first performance location, they will travel to the next spot and find another performance and then continue to follow the map seeing various things along the way until they reach the end performance.
On our end, we are looking for dance, music, performance art, circus arts, theatre, spoken word and more to be featured at various locations. Groups should scout out their own location (email freeflowdance@hotmail.com for map details)

We would like you to be as creative as possible when choosing a location! Remember that this is an underground, unofficial type of event and you will need to sort out any power sources etc you will need for your performance. We do have a good relationship with local business and will help you out if you encounter any minor logistical or space usage problems. This is an unpaid "free" event however we will be taking donations at the end of the event which will go towards the operation of Free Flow Dance Theatre Company Inc.

Artist fees may be made available if we secure a corporate sponsor but are not confirmed at this time.
All acts should be approx. between 5 and 10 min long. Please NOT longer than 10 minutes!!!!
If you are interested in participating please contact me at freeflowdance@hotmail.com.
