Tiny Stage Proposals

All performing arts are encouraged; stand-up comedy, spoken word, one-person show, performance art, singing, dance, you name it!

  • Performances should be 10-15 minutes in length
  • No nudity and no open flames, please
  • Because of the nature of our space, we do ask that you prepare work that is not too technically demanding. We can provide basic sound (bluetooth speaker) and basic lighting.

DEIA Statement
Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) is part of our core principles. Our organization recognizes the reality that cultural biases and systemic racism impact communities of color in the Sacramento area, and beyond, and it is part of our ongoing goals to dismantle those systems through racially-equitable practices. We look for creative ways to rethink systems and policies to better serve and support communities of color whenever possible and are in an ongoing process of examining and questioning the practices that have been traditionally deemed “professional,” which have been part of the oppression of marginalized communities, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). As we create our events, programs, and collective projects, we continuously strive to provide an inclusive, accessible environment with a low barrier to entry for anyone interested in experiencing the beauty and joy of the performing arts. We hope to continue and expand our focus on creating works that are open and welcoming to adults of every age, ethnicity, race, color, religious background, nationality, ability, gender identity, and sexual identity.

Community Agreements

  • That we will be open and welcoming to everyone who wants to participate, no matter what their identity or background.
  • That we will be respectful of the time we all volunteer to each other by showing gratitude, being on time, and working hard.
  • That our actions affect each other, so we will work to self regulate our emotions, give kind and helpful feedback as needed, and accept respectful feedback openly.
  • That each human body has different physical, emotional, and mental needs, and that it is good to meet those needs by stopping when the body needs to stop.
  • That creating things can be scary, but being open to new ideas is how all the best stuff happens.
  • At Empire Arts Collective, we strive to create an environment where everyone feels safe and respected.
