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.
