Now in its 11th year, ANT Fest, Ars Nova's annual celebration of all-new talent, is a prime destination for an eclectic mix of new shows from some of the most intrepid, adventurous artists in New York City. Through its open submission process, ANT Fest offers a wide range of early career artists a point of entry onto the Ars Nova stage and into the greater New York City arts community.
This year, the festival once again includes the ANT Fest Lounge Series — intimate, pop-up encounters with ANT Fest alums debuting fresh ideas and new sounds — in the oh-so-lux ANT Fest Lounge. The alums include Angela Sclafani, Ikechukwu Ufomadu, Whitney White, and WinLitt. Plus, Ars Nova's ongoing variety-show-meets-party Showgasm. gets festified with two special late-night performances hosted by Mitra Jouhari and Ayo Edebiri.
