The News is dedicated to providing a consistent venue for the exploration, collaboration and the development of new queer work*. On the first Tuesday of each month, The News casts a spotlight on new performance pieces, experiments, debut works and works in progress by pre-selected solo artists, groups or troupes. An informal session for critical feedback follows the performances.
In the last 2+ years, The News has hosted 27 performance evenings, over 220 artists, a 25 person panel on queer performance curation, and an improv dance performance with 40+ participants.
Artists interested in performing should fill out this Artist Survey or send questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The News takes place on the first Tuesday of each month from 7:30-9pm at SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St. in San Francisco. Tickets are $5, NOTAFLF, and advance tickets are recommended.
*How do we define queer?
We recognize that "queer" can mean vastly different things to different people. To us, "queer" is a term of radical self-definition - and can relate to personal gender or sexual identity or expression, history, presentation, artistic approach and/or content, and so much more.
