Established in 2014, NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally based performing artists. This program is a Satellite Arts Partnership with Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mount Rainier, MD.
Selected through a yearly application process, NextLOOK artists are given a stipend and access to rehearsal and performance space at Joe’s Movement Emporium. These artists also collaborate with The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium staff to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.
All performances are held off-campus at Joe’s Movement Emporium and are pay-what-you-wish.
2016-2017 NextLOOK Series
This season’s NextLOOK artists will transport you to the far reaches of outer space, lead you through the nooks and crannies of their own backyards and let you discover the places and moments in between. Explore worlds both imagined and real — and be a part of creating it all. View all events in the 2016-2017 NextLOOK Series.
2017-2018 NextLOOK Series
The deadline to submit a proposal for the 2017-2018 NextLOOK Series has passed. 2017-2018 NextLOOK artists will be announced in May.
