    J e l l o: 20(18)

    The J e l l o Performance strives for full artist visibility and inclusivity. Art-making takes a lot of time, space and money. We provide a safe environment and welcoming performance space for artists to experiment, create, risk and try! As a J e l l o artist, you have access to a performance space, production/lighting resources and a very supportive audience. This is a great opportunity whether you are an emerging choreographer or an established artist. Previous J e l l o artists have shown works from the past, works in progress as well as excerpts from current work. There have even been collaborations involving other art forms (ie. Movement and Music)! We also provide, FREE videographic and photographic footage!
