CPM Season 3 Pitch Event
Have a new and exciting production you’ve been burning to see become a reality? You are cordially invited to join Cooperative Performance Milwaukee and bring your creativity to the stage for our 2016/2017 season pitch night. Your creativity and ingenuity are what will take our organization to new heights in our highly anticipated third season. Come join us on Friday January 22nd at 6:00pm at the Riverwest Public House and present your vision for a work of art as we look to take our Cooperative to new artistic heights!
Please complete the attached paperwork and email back before January 15th. Powerpoints or any supplemental pitch necessities should be sent to me no later than January 18th.
What Do We Want To Produce?
Top-quality, professional productions of new performance art. Scripts reimagined and remixed. Barriers bent and broken between “theatre,” “dance,” and “music.” New technologies incorporated into rehearsal and performance. Projects that veer from the standard model and teach us something about performance and its practices. A multitude of things that we haven’t imagined, but someone else has. The possibilities are literally endless.
Presentations can be no longer than 6 minutes. Time will be kept, and each presenter will receive a 3 minute, 1 minute, and 30 second warning. Regardless of length of presentation, there will be a q&a session following each presentation that will be cut off after 4 minutes. Thus, total length of each pitch is 10 minutes max. Presentation order will be determined by lottery among those desiring to make a pitch.
A computer will be provided with a projector & speakers connected to it. All media must be in basic format (like ppt). Presentations should include proposed budget, performance space, number of people on the production team (including cast size) and description of the project.
Thank you all for your continued participation and support. We can’t wait to see what you propose!
