What is Tiny Stage?

Coming up on September 30th, 2023 at 8pm

Tiny Stage is a unique opportunity for local performing artists to try out new material in a respectful environment in front of a live audience. Artists present short, 10-15 minute pieces and after the show, everyone receives a one-on-one critique from a panel of local artists.

Think of it like an open mic night, but more structured. You get to perform for an audience so you can see what feels right on stage. And because the lineup is pre-selected, you know you’ll be able to go up.

Why You Should Do It

We welcome people who are brand new to their art form as well as experienced artists who want to get feedback on work in progress.If selected, the Tiny Stage experience provides artists with:

  • A guaranteed slot to test out your work in front of a live, supportive crowd 
  • A kind, constructive critique from a panel of other artists to help you push your performance to the next level
  • A great opportunity to refine your work and meet other artists

Performance Guidelines

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.

I really appreciated the opportunity to perform with EAC’s Tiny Stage experience! The application, feedback, and consent process was very easy prior to the performance. Messaging was clear and timely from the venue. On the day of the performance, we had more than enough time to go through everything, make necessary adjustments then have a break to center ourselves and get food before the show. The audience was warm, the panel was supportive, and I valued the feedback I got. I would definitely perform with them again!
