THE WHAT: A BIG EMPTY SPACE (or not empty, if you feel like loaning us your house for two nights one weekend), preferably with rooms of some kind, but warehouse like space is just fine too. The more quirky and full of different levels and the like, the better, but we really just need the space. AN ABANDONED HOUSE. A WAREHOUSE FOR FREE. AN OLD OFFICE BUILDING. A FORECLOSED HOME. --any of these will work.
THE WHY: Unconventional theatre festival supporting new works about basic human rights, particularly protesting stop and frisk and advocating housing rights in Harlem, New York. Featuring work from playwrights all over the USA, including some playwrights from the Public, Naomi Wallace, and more.
THE WHY PART II: We're theatre artists. We're not exactly rolling in riches (of the material kind, that is.) We need an affordable/free space; we'd absolutely be happy to negotiate!
THE WHY PART III: How cool would it be to be the person/organization/other entity who helped art take place? You'll go down in history. We're not kidding. The festival is bicontinental. It's happening simultaneously in London, too. Ask us about it.
THE WHO: Two nice twenty somethin' playwritin' theatre makin' human rights advocatin' gals. The heads of the festival. Kate and Sarah are our names.
THE WHEN: ASAP. The festival itself take place in the middle of March.
THE WHERE:Harlem. But if you've got a space--even if it's on the moon--get in touch with us. We're open, and this is only the first festival of many. We'll need other spaces.
THE CONTACT INFO: contact Sarah and Kate at: firstname.lastname@example.org
