About the Naked Stages Program

A creative opportunity unlike any other in the Minnesota, Naked Stages is the culmination of a 7 month fellowship that provides three early career performance artists with the time, resources, and mentorship they need to bring their distinctive visions to life on stage. In addition to regular feedback sessions, the artists participate in workshops with local creators, as well as more intensive workshops with nationally-renowned artists. 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.

Naked Stages performances are the final step of a multi-layered program designed for artists to be their most bold and creative selves.

Selections will be announced by early May, 2020.
