in Koresh’s The Heart
The Koresh Artist Showcase is an initiative that was created to give emerging talent in the community a platform to present their work. Each showcase presents work by a diverse group of local performers and there is no cost for participants. This gives artists in the community more opportunities for performance and the chance to connect with a wider audience in an intimate setting.
Please email Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application. Please note that a work sample is required. The piece submitted should be completed, performance-ready, and no longer than 8 minutes.
Submissions for the next showcase are DUE OCTOBER 14th.
Showcases at Koresh offer the Philadelphia community a chance to discover new artists as well as new styles of dance. Some of our past participants have included Sammy Reyes, Alchemy Dance Company, Crystal Frazier, Project Moshen, Opus 1 Dance, Shannon Murphy, Ballet Fleming, Teresa VanDenend Sorge, Xhale Dance Company, Lin Batsheva Kahn and many more!
Our next showcases for Fall 2016 will take place November 5th at 5pm and 7pm and November 6th at 5pm.
