terraNOVA COLLECTIVE and Producing Artistic Director, Jennifer Conley Darling, have announced that the 2012 soloNOVA Arts Festival, the award-winning and longest-running solo performance festival in New York City, will play a three-week limited engagement at Off-Broadway's New Ohio Theatre (154 Christopher Street, inside the landmark Archive Building). Performances begin Tuesday, May 29 and continue through Sunday, June 17.
Darling said to the performers who gathered at a meet and greet on Sunday at the New Ohio Theatre, "No show is like another with a cross section of all different genres, from performance art, to painting, to physical theater."
Darling picks "only projects with a strong story arc that are not necessarily autobiographical. soloNOVA has been a platform to over 320 solo artists who are the most powerful storytellers."
Tickets are $20 for individual shows; $30 for two-shows; $100 festival pass (50% discount)
Tickets will be available online at www.terranovacollective.org. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at Box Office ½ hour in advance of the performances.
