CatScratch Theatre and The Irondale Center are pleased to present the second annual FLICfest, January 19–28, 2012, at The Irondale Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The 2012 festival will feature full-length works by 12 choreographers as well as a variety of post-show cabaret performances and new public programs.
Founded in 2010 by Jeramy Zimmerman, Artistic Director of CatScratch Theatre, FLICfest celebrated its inaugural season in January 2011. A platform for the presentation of feature-length work, FLICfest presents choreographers with diverse approaches to artmaking and theatrical aesthetics. The festival also focuses on community building, providing a forum for choreographers to share ideas, cross-promote, and develop new audiences. The 2012 season will offer two new public programs: a series of technique and composition classes, and panel discussions focusing on self-producing performance and creating feature-length work.
Choreographers/companies participating in the 2012 festival include: Brittany Bailey, Robin Neveu Brown, Tanya Calamoneri/Company SoGoNo, Carlos A. Cruz- Velázquez, Erica Essner, Niles Ford, Jordan Fuchs, Adrian Jevicki/Run Shayo, Mana Kawamura, Elke Luyten/Kira Alker, The Merrymakers, and Keith Thompson. More information about the artists can be found on the Choreographers page.
Each evening of the festival will feature works by two choreographers in Irondale’s main space, followed by an informal late-night cabaret in the venue’s balcony lounge. The full performance and program schedule will be available in December. The Irondale Center is located at 85 South Oxford Street, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
