-Thursday, Jan. 17th, 7:30pm: Open Stage!
SubRosa's take on Open Mic. Once a month. Every month. Sign ups at 7:30pm. Show at 8! Each act will get 5-10 minutes depending on the evening.
This is a space for performance of all kinds. A space to be witnessed in your work. Performance art. Drag. Dance. Poetry. Music. Essays. Rants. Interactive games. Magic. This is an Open Stage.
With a critique of capitalism and acknowledgement of intersectional systems of oppression, we honor and wish to uplift less heard voices including those of queer, trans, femme, people of color and indigenous folks. We strive to create a brave space where we work with what and who is in the room.
We hope for this space to serve the radical performing artists in Santa Cruz and are open to collaboration!
Donations accepted and appreciated.
