Local Artists + Adventurous Works: Announcing 2019-20 NextLOOK


In partnership with The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium

NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. These artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers of cost and space, and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.

All performances are held at Joe’s Movement Emporium. Tickets start at $5
