In/Out 2010: Digital Performance Festival

I just got a note from the organizers of In/Out, an annual digital performance festival in New York that features digitally driven performances and workshops over two days at The Tank Theater in Manhattan. This year the festival is on September 17 and 18. If you’re unfamiliar with this inspiring event, checkout some of the video documentation. Read on for the details and submission guidelines.

The Tank is accepting proposals for:
In/Out 2010: Digital Performance Festival

In/Out is an annual festival that features leading performers, developers, artists, and tinkerers of the digital design community in hopes bridging the gap between the forum based world and the stage. The festival seeks to bring digitally driven performances into the limelight with two full days of workshops and performances. We invite programmers, visualists, hardware hackers, electronics gurus, musicians, and novices to take part in the events of In/Out. With workshops to encourage others to join in the fray and inspiring performances, this is not only the time for those interested in the constantly changing field to get involved, but for current members of the community to step up their game as well. The boundary pushing festival is produced by the Tank, a humble non-profit performing arts presenter located in Manhattan. In addition to In/Out, the Tank also produces the legendary Bent and Blip festivals as well as nightly performances from New York City’s finest emerging artists.
