The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at the Graduate Center, CUNY has unveiled the artist lineup and program schedule for the highly anticipated PRELUDE.12, the ninth annual PRELUDE festival dedicated to artists at the forefront of contemporary New York City theatre, dance, interdisciplinary and mediatized performance. In its largest lineup ever, PRELUDE.12 will present more than 40 short performances, readings, and screenings -as well as panel discussions with artists, scholars and performers.
The curators of PRELUDE.12 have collaborated with the Segal Center to offer audiences a completely free survey of the current New York moment and the work being prepared for the 2012/13 season and beyond. PRELUDE.12 is a place to discover what voices are shaping the future of theatre and performance in NYC, to observe, engage, commune, and critique.
To enhance and continue the festival's discourse, PRELUDE.12 has teamed up with Culturebot (www.culturebot.org) and Contemporary Performance (www.contemporaryperformance.org) who will serve as our Critical Partners. These online publications will embed writers within the festival to foster critical dialogue before, during, and after the festival's span.
All performances are free and open to the public.
