clown-head-urinalOBEY Convention VII is looking for adventurous concepts that intimately combine music and art in a bizarre live performance. Send us your ideas! We will choose at least one proposal to present as a free event at the festival between May 22nd and May 25th.

The winning performance will happen at the Bus Stop Theatre. Keep that space in mind when drafting your proposal. Besides a PA system and technician, OBEY Convention cannot provide other equipment to facilitate the performance. So keep it simple. The event will be a one hour or less stand alone show that will be free to the public. No other events will be happening at this time, so expect a decent crowd.

Other considerations

-content should be appropriate for all ages (and legal)
-there can be no risk of damage to the venue or audience
-costs should be kept to a minimum as they will not be directly compensated for by the festival
-performers are responsible for set up and tear down of production

The winning project will receive a $250 honorarium and up to three passes to the festival.

Include the following and send proposals to:

-a brief description of the project
-a list of participants
-technical requirements
-links to other work or past projects
-do not send any attachments

The deadline is March 7th. The winning proposal will be selected March 27th. Thanks so much!
