I need to write some grant copy for my festival and I might as well work on it here.
Afterglow is Provincetown’s Live Performance Arts Festival. The 8th annual Afterglow takes stage September 10-16, 2018 at the Art House. Afterglow brings to Provincetown informed audiences from the region, country, and abroad to see its award-winning artists, who typically only appear in festival capitals like New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, London, Berlin, San Francisco, Manchester, Dublin, Edinburgh, and the like. Afterglow has earned Provincetown a star on the international festival map, opening dialogues with other festivals world-wide. Afterglow’s artists make headlines as social icons and activists; and range from the newly emerging to Grammy-, Tony-, Sundance-, Obie- and Academy- award- winners innovating performance as we know it. Afterglow presents solo plays, neo cabaret, progressive sketch, performance art, multimedia, dance, electronica, poetic/rap, rock opera, musical comedy and other forms, fostering Provincetown’s reputation as a important live-arts center, not just a commercial/resort entertainment town. Afterglow cultivates local talent—performers, designers, costumers, choreographers, composers, playwrights —in festival, and with ancillary productions. The festival created a “playwright’s initiative” and produced work at top venues/theaters under the “Afterglow of Provincetown” aegis. Afterglow reclaims Provincetown’s birthright as the birth place and incubator of the modern American stage, receiving support and promotion from Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater and Dixon Place in NYC and Oberon at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge where Afterglow produces the successful Glowberon series, now in its third expanded season. Works originated at Afterglow have moved Off-Broadway, to NYC, and to London, Los Angeles, Paris and other major cities around the globe. 256
