Almanac Dance Circus Theatre Announces the Return of Cannonball and the Recipients of the BIPOC New Work Presentation Track

Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, the award-winning, internationally recognized, Philadelphia-based performing arts ensemble dedicated to creating genre-defying art, has selected the first recipients of the BIPOC New Work Presentation Track. These works will be part of the second annual Cannonball, an independently run Fringe Hub of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Running September 1-30, including a week of performances before the start of Fringe, Cannonball features more than 300 performances of over 65 shows, spanning circus, dance, theater, film, and more. Cannonball returns to the Maas Building from September 8th-30th, and for the first time will present programming at the nearby Icebox Project Space at Crane Arts from September 1-18. Events will take place indoors and outdoors. More information can be found at the festival’s website www.cannonballfestival.org.
Festival producers are thrilled to announce the inaugural recipients of the BIPOC New Work Presentation Track for Cannonball Festival 2022! All of the selected artists will have their works fully produced by Cannonball as a part of this year’s Philly Fringe, and will receive a $2500 stipend along with additional marketing support. These powerful, risk-taking projects will be centerpieces of this year’s Cannonball Festival. They spark imperative dialogue, create spaces of resistance and healing, and highlight the virtuosity of some of Philly’s most exciting artists. Winners were selected by a panel of working Philadelphia-based BIPOC Artists, including Nathan Alford-Tate and Rhonda Moore, out of a pool of over 30 applications for the award. Several BIPOC New Work Track Finalists will also be presenting work at Cannonball Festival with additional stipend support for these works totaling $4000, bringing the total amount of stipend support awarded to $16,500....
