IPAY – International Performing Arts for Youth – Showcase 2013
Plutôt la Vie are privileged to have been chosen for the IPAY 2013 showcase in Philadephia. Programmed for Monday 7th at 11.30 at the Prince Music Theatre, Philadelphia, the company are busy preparing for the showing of By the Seat of Your Pants, and manning the showcase booth, to take advantage of the extensive opportunities and connections the conference affords. As a major funder, Plutôt is incredibly grateful to Creative Scotland for making this possible.
The annual Showcase (which includes performances, exhibits, networking opportunities, and more recently a pre-conference seminar) has attracted major companies, artists, and programmers who serve young audiences. Throughout the four-day event, these professionals share resources and view performances of national and international performing artists who have been selected through a rigorous jury process conducted by an international selection committee. The exhibit area provides display information and video material on touring productions. As an educational service to the field, the conference offers a series of panel discussions on current issues and trends. Approximately 300 people register for the conference each year, representing geographic, cultural, and aesthetic diversity.
The Showcase is designed to encourage dialogue about the creation and presentation of that work among artists and presenters whose lives are devoted to the impact of this work.
