Choreographer Info Sessions

It's been five months since FLICfest 2011 came to a successful close, but in that time, we've been hard at work planning FLICfest 2012!

We're pleased to kick-off FLICfest 2012 with the announcement of choreographer info sessions for those interested in submitting work for consideration in FLICfest 2012. 

All choreographers interested in submitting their work for FLICfest 2012 are required to attend one of the three available sessions. Info sessions will cover submission requirements, selection criteria, festival policies and a walkthrough of the performance space, along with time for questions. Submissions from choreographers who have not attended an info session will not be considered.

Info sessions will be held on the following dates:

Monday, June 27, 2011 at 6:30pm
Monday, July 18, 2011 at 6:30pm
Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 12:00pm

All sessions will be held at the Irondale Center, 85 S. Oxford St., Brooklyn (directions).

Please e-mail submissions@flicfest.org with any questions you may have. If you're interested in submitting work for FLICfest 2012, we hope to see you there!

Thank you!

The first ever FLICfest has concluded! It was a huge success and we couldn’t have done it without you. Whether you danced, donated, volunteered, came to watch or just sent us encouraging email, we thank you! Through 12 mainstage performances and 22 Cabaret acts, we had a great time and hopethat you did too. We’re already planning FLICfest 2012, so be sure that you’re on our email list so we can keep you in the loop. We could not have asked for a better inaugural year and can’t wait to bring you many more!

Thank you again!

Jeramy Zimmerman
Founder and Artistic Director

New York Times Review of Layard Thompson at FLICfest

Claudia La Rocco of the New York Times has published a review of “Spellin’ Flashhhh Lightsssss," the work performed by Layard Thompson this past Friday during the second weekend of FLICfest. 

Ms. La Rocco says, "What must it be like to rocket between politically conscious queer cabaret and a commune in the rural South? You see these shifts in Mr. Thompson’s physicality, which marries arch deconstructions with a particular ferociousness; you can pet him, but he isn’t housebroken."

FLICfest featured in the Wall Street Journal

FLICfest founder and choreographer Jeramy Zimmerman has been featured in the Wall Street Journal's Donor of the Day column. The column discusses Jeramy's motivation behind creating FLICfest - not only to help grow and enrich the dance community in New York, but also to present a framework within which independent choreographers can fund and present their own work.
