A creative opportunity unlike any other in Minnesota, Naked Stages is a 7 to 9 month development program that provides time, money, and mentoring to four performance artists. In addition to regular feedback sessions, the artists participate in workshops with local creators like Hijack, Pramila Vasudevan as well as more intensive workshops with nationally-renowned artist Sharon Bridgforth. Once a month, they also participate in production meetings focused on the business side of art, from audience development to technical support, helping to develop their unique voice into a sustainable, artistic career. Janaki Ranpura and Andrea Jenkins share the program on Dec 1-4, each performing for 60 minutes or less. Esther Ouray and M. Cochise Anderson perform on Dec 8-11. For more details, click here.
