Southern Exposure Subsidy for DanzAbierta
At this time, we are organizing the speciﬁc tour dates for DanzAbierta’s 2017-18 U.S. tour. To date, we have two windows of touring activity available: November 2017 and March 2018. I have been in touch with many of you individually, but if you are interested in presenting the company in either one of these tour windows, please contact me as soon as possible so that we can create a calendar of activities for the tour. Additionally, if you have other dates you would like to suggest, please contact me directly to explore possibilities further.
Some important details:
The Southern Exposure subsidy is ﬁrst-come, ﬁrst-served, so if this support is critical for your presentation of the company, please be aware that this subsidy is limited. At this time, Southern Exposure has allocated a total of $29,100 in total subsidy for DanzAbierta, and we want to make sure this subsidy, once allocated, will be substantial enough to oﬀset costs for presenters in a meaningful way. In order to allocate this subsidy properly, presenters must advise me of their interest promptly. Final letters of agreement are due April 1 to be eligible to receive the subsidy.
Additionally, The National Performance Network/Visual Artists Network (NPN/VAN) is coordinating this tour and providing administrative support though its Performing Americas Program in the form of visa preparation. Please note that NPN/VAN will also pay for all visa petition and application costs for the tour, so these costs will not be passed on to tour presenters.
