2007 Call for Artists: Sparx Street Beats


Reposted from the Sparx web-site:

2007 Call for Artists

Sparx Street Beats is an energetic performance art series that takes place LIVE on the streets of downtown Cleveland, from June through September. Every week the sidewalks come alive as selected performers present charming, mesmerizing and colorful shows to passersby, making the experience of exploring the city more pleasant and exciting. Because all acts are encouraged to promote their upcoming performances, a gig through the Sparx Street Beats program becomes more than just an earned wage. It’s an opportunity for professional ensembles to market their artistic product to new audiences. In return, visitors, residents, and merchants of Cleveland are exposed to high-quality performing arts from our region in a very accessible, non-intimidating way.

Sparx in the City is looking for energetic performance artists for highly visible, paid roles in downtown Cleveland’s coolest outdoor entertainment series. Sparx Street Beats is seeking professional soloists and ensembles that integrate bold dance, music or visual elements into crowd-stopping acts for downtown patio diners and passersby. Artists must be available on various Thursday evenings and Friday lunchtimes to perform in two hour shifts.
