South Asian International Performing Arts Festival (SAIPAF) is the annual celebration of the diverse perspectives, ideas, and imaginations of artists from the South Asian subcontinent and/or who belong to the South Asian diaspora.
The first annual South Asian International Performing Arts Festival was held from August 3 - August 9, 2015 at Urban Stages in Manhattan.
SAIPAF is currently accepting applications for 2017. Productions as well as individual artists are welcome to submit.
Applications are below.
All performing arts mediums, including but not limited to theatre, music, dance, performance art, slam poetry, and stand up comedy are welcome.
We encourage experimental works that are high-concept and low-tech. Projects must include either one artist of South Asian origin and/or a thematic/plot element that explores issues concerning South Asia and/or the South Asian diaspora. Artists, upon acceptance to festival, will receive a portion of net profit.
The festival will take place in Manhattan. Out-of-town artists must make their own travel and lodging reservations.
