Portable Performance Festival
September 8-25, 2022
~ On-demand stream available for purchase through October 1st! ~
A festival of solo storytelling and minimalist performance! As we reemerge from the pandemic, we recommit to 18th & U's original spirit and vision, inviting a new batch of creators to share their fresh “portable” work with new and returning audiences.
Big news in September!
Sept. 1st: A peaceful transition of power!
We are grateful for David Gassner's years of tireless service as co-founder of 18th & Union, and its engine & driver since 2016. Now we welcome Peggy Gannon as our new Producing Director! She brings decades of experience as a local producer, director, actor, and administrator. Her deep ties and commitment to the local artistic community make her ideal for this position.
Sept. 10th: Five More Years!
We are able to share the huge news that we have negotiated a new five-year lease with our supportive building owners! 18th & Union's future at 18th & Union is secure. With a name like ours, where else could we go?
Sept. 20th: We welcome some new roommates!
We are thrilled that Brown Soul Productions will become a Resident Company at 18th & Union! BSP's mission is to provide a platform that nurtures and amplifies the voices of women of color through the development and production of new creative works.
Sept. 30th: Professionalizing our staff!
Starting in 2022, we will be transitioning our volunteer staff to paid staff. This is HUGE GREAT NEWS!
