The Roxbury Arts Group is looking for performers for Busk & Bard: Roxbury’s Street Performer Festival, which is scheduled to take place in downtown Roxbury on Saturday, August 31, 2013.

Last year, this Labor Day weekend event attracted over 2,500 visitors to downtown Roxbury, and this year event organizers aim to double that number! This year’s event will bring back Bacchanal Productions, a team of performers who specialize in fire and circus arts, and world-touring and award-winning dance ensemble Galumpha will also be on the bill, performing on the stage at the Roxbury Arts Center as well as in the street.

Roxbury Arts Group is looking for performers who would like to join the festivities and showcase their talents for an audience of thousands. Performances can be just about anything that people find entertaining. Acts can vary in professionalism and specialty, including acrobatics, balloon twisting, card tricks, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, escapology, dance, singing, flea circus, juggling, magic, mime, living statue, musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street art such as sketching and painting, street theatre, and of course bring your busking hat to pass!

Busk & Bard is a curated event. Those interested in performing are asked to visit buskandbard.org to download a 2013 Busk & Bard Performer Application. Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2013, and performers will be notified by July 1, 2013 about their participation in this community event. For more information, please contact Maggie Cullen, Program Director at the Roxbury Arts Group, at mcullen@roxburyartsgroup.org or by calling 607.326.7908.
