May Day Performance Challenge

As part of the launch for the 2011 Emerging America Festival, the Huntington Theatre Company is seeking performance groups to participate in the May Day Performance Challenge, a fun new event aimed at showcasing the creative skills of local Boston performers.

Given a short script and a quirky style, relating to the pieces presented as part of the Emerging America Festival, groups will be asked to develop a 5-10 minute piece to be performed on the Emerging America Stage at the May Fair in Cambridge on May 1st. The challenge? On the day of the performance, we hand you a list of items to find in Harvard Square and one hour to use your creativity to incorporate them into your performance. The results will be presented to an adoring crowd and a panel of judges. The winners take home a fabulous prize!

Both individual artists and companies are invited to apply. Groups must be comprised of 2-6 people.
