Off-IPAY Independent Showcase
OFF-IPAY Independent Showcases
Philadelphia January 23-27, 2018

Another Little Dance, HETPALEIS, Belgium, Showcase Artist 2015


New for Showcase 2018, IPAY is initiating a pilot project whereby Artists, Producers, and Agents, have the opportunity to present an official Independent Showcase Performance. This initiative is an attempt to increase the number of productions available for Showcase delegates and increase opportunities for member artists to showcase their work.

Note: Off-IPAY independent productions might include full-length productions, pitch sessions, and/or a group of artistic companies organized around specific cultural region or genre.

Artists, Producers and Agents who wish to present an official Off-IPAY Independent Showcase must:

  • Be a current IPAY Member.
  • Register for the full IPAY 2018 Showcase as an EXHIBITOR (or have Agency representation and register as a DELEGATE). Note: Registration will be open in September. See 2018 Registration Rates here.
  • Be completely responsible for all production and expenses related to independent showcases: including and not limited to venue hire, production and technical aspects, promotion, appropriate insurance, etc.
  • Agree to provide access for all registered IPAY Delegates to the performance (within venue capacity restrictions).
  • Pay a fee of $100 which includes a 50-word listing in the official IPAY program and on the Showcase website. The listing must include: a production photo, performance title, artistic company, age range, capacity, venue, show time(s), whether tickets and/or reservations are required, contact phone and email. Note: all independent producers are responsible for managing reservations if they are required.
  • Schedule the Independent Showcase Performances only during the specific time periods sanctioned by IPAY.
  • Schedule Off-IPAY Independent Showcase Performance in a Philadelphia venue.
  • Submit an online Off-IPAY application before the deadline of October 27th, 2017, 5pm EST.
