ABOUT DREAM UP – TNC’s Summer Showcase

The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct." The festival is dedicated to new works.
The question of the artist's vision to free or attack the material will be asked in each application. The festival does not want traditional theater which is presented in a traditional way. Theater for the New City wants to use this festival as a way to push ideas to the forefront with the hope of revealing roads less traveled or undiscovered. Presentation of a straightforward play must be imaginative in some way.

Festival Description
Theater for the New City will present a 3 week long anthology of wide-ranging and original theatrical visions embracing drama, poetry, music, and dance in the summer of 2015 from performing artists representing theater and performance companies in our theater complex in downtown New York. The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct."
