What Is a Linkage?

What is a Linkage?

Links Hall’s mission is to encourage artistic innovation and public engagement by maintaining a facility and providing flexible programming for the research, development and presentation of new work in the performing arts.

Links Hall dedicates 30 weeks to co-presentations, called Linkage Partnerships, of new works by self-producing performing artists that align with Links Hall’s mission.

When:

One-nighter Linkages are Wednesday nights at 7:30pm of a single program that techs and performs on the same day

Weekend-er Linkages are Friday-Sunday nights at 7pm of three performances of the same program with tech beginning on Thursdays.

Who:

Collective, ensemble, group or solo work, and shared bill (several group or solo artists’ works on the same program) that align with Links Hall’s mission are ALL eligible.

What:

All new work in performing and interdisciplinary art forms are welcome (in alphabetical order): dance, experimental theater, interdisciplinary, movement, multi-disciplinary, object theater, performance art, physical theater, puppetry, social practice, and That Which Can’t Be Defined But Is Live Art — EXCEPT music or film/video projection on its own or as the primary art form.

How:

Linkage Partners receive space, technician and marketing support and the majority (75%-90%) of all ticket sales. This includes: studio time for tech and performances, a Links Hall Lighting Designer / Production Stage Manager (LD/PSM) to design the lighting and run your light and sound cues during tech rehearsals and performances, a House Manager at your performances, online and day of box office, Links website banner, calendar/season releases, and inclusion in Links e-blasts and social media. Please note: Links Hall’s promotion support augments but does not, and cannot, replace each artist’s own audience development efforts.

Where:

Studio A (the white box) of Constellation | Links Hall at 3111 North Western Avenue.
