Atrocity Exhibition's rusty gears are in full motion as we gnash and gnaw our way closer to the event. As we all know, we have been funded through kickstarter and have also been offering Atrocious tees in our Etsy store to help fund the event. We will continue to offer exclusive items through out the next few months to help continue to build event funds....so keep your eyes peeled.
I have been in contact with the venue and made some serious head way this afternoon on Atrocity's date. We are currently gunning for 2 dates: Friday, April 29, 2011 and Friday, May 6, 2011. We will have one of these 2 dates nailed with in the next few days, as we are in competition with other promoters for the space. The fantastic, new booking management is working with us to push our offer through.
So, with that being said....Atrocity's final date announcement will be made as soon as I receive the phone call that our date is solid and that we can move forward, and I have been guaranteed that it will be within the next 3 days.
I am going to go ahead and put out the call for artists and entertainers. Although our entertainment line up has been fairly secured, we are sending our feelers out for any one that we may have not seen before that can bring something different to this fantastic line up of malcontents who grace our stage with their atrocious behavior. We are offering 15 vendor/artist tables at this year's event. Some of these spots have already been spoken for and the remaining spots will fill up FAST. Last event, our vendor spots filled within 2 days time, so if you are interested....act now.
READ THE FINE PRINT!!!
These are the guidelines for our artists/entertainers....read carefully....follow the directions ;)
**ATROCITY EXHIBITION IS AN ART OF FETISH EVENT....NOT A FETISH EVENT. WE INCORPORATE FETISH PERFORMANCES INTO A CABARET/SIDESHOW ATMOSPHERE AND THIS IS A THEMED EVENT. THIS YEAR'S THEME IS 1920's ASYLUM MEDICAL AND WILL BE THE VAUDEVILE ASYLUM CABARET...STRAIGHT JACKETS, SHOCK TREATMENT THERAPY, AND ICE BATHS WELCOME**
ARTISTS/VENDORS: We are looking for HAND CRAFTED wares of a darker nature from established crafters/artisans that will fit with the DARKER theme of Atrocity. We are looking for corset makers, leather workers, sculptors, artists who play with dead things....so on and so forth....
If you are interested at vending this year's event, please send a web link to your work with your submission so that it can be reviewed and a small bio telling us a bit about yourself and your work.
ENTERTAINERS: Although our line up is fairly secure, we are welcoming new submissions for this event. All entertainers are required to deliver performances that are within the guide lines of the event's theme so that all of the acts form a cohesive cabaret. We are looking for entertainers who are well-rehearsed and established with their skill.
If you are interested in performing at this year's event, please send a web link to your work, that includes video of previous performances (youtube links are welcome) along with a small bio telling us about yourself and your act.
ALL SUBMISSIONS: All submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE DO NOT SEND SUBMISSIONS VIA FACEBOOK MESSAGE OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE, WE WILL NOT RESPOND. It is easier for us to keep everyone organized if all messages are being passed through one source, and our email is the most solid form of communication.
Once your submission has been sent, we will review promptly and respond regardless of our decision. This may take a few days, as we have a lot of folks on board, so if you do not get a response immediately, please do not badger us...we will get to you, we swear. Further details on the event will be passed along in our response to those we would like to bring on board...we will also gladly answer any questions or concerns through email submission.
Thank you all again for the support, we look forward to seeing you....stay tuned.
Parting is such sweet sorrow,
