Description

RESERVATIONS ARE CLOSED AT 5:30 EACH PERFORMANCE NIGHT.

THERE ARE STILL SEATS LEFT!

WALK-UPS ARE VERY WELCOME!

The Right Here Showcase is a new bi-annual juried mini-festival showcasing Minnesota-based mid-career contemporary performing artists. Four incomparable performer-creators present original work on an alternating schedule over two weekends. Audiences have an opportunity to sample their favorite artists' new work hot off the boards, and take a chance on something they might never have seen before, all for a suggested donation to support the artists’ work.

In its second year The Right Here Showcase is proud to highlight the exceptional creative skills and singular artistic visions of four of Minnesota’s most enduring and exciting creator-performers: Penelope Freeh (dance artist), Melissa Birch (live artist & director), Megan Mayer (dance artist), and Craig Harris (composer & multimedia artist). Each artist receives a $1,000 commission, along with substantial technical and marketing support, to create a new work, revisit and expand a past work, or complete a current work specifically for the Showcase.

“In our community there are many opportunities for emerging talents and support for established artists, but no platform that specifically addresses local artists in the middle of their careers. And yet these are the very artists that have committed themselves to Minnesota, who strengthen our community by inspiring & mentoring younger artists, and who bring the full force of their skill and experience to everything they do.

There is no shortage of exceptional artists right here in the Twin Cities for us to recognize and to celebrate.” – Artistic Producer Paul Herwig

""The “Right Here Showcase” offers a welcome venue for Twin Cities artists who deserve to be seen...A terrific sampler of the arts community’s most innovative perspectives." - Minneapolis Star Tribune
