BEAT = Brooklyn Emerging Artists in Theater
BEAT (Brooklyn Emerging Artists in Theater) is a performing arts initiative for the diverse communities of Brooklyn. The primary aim of the BEAT Festival is to support, develop and create a platform for emerging performing artists in Brooklyn. Community building is also a central aim as BEAT seeks to present performance events that express our profound talents and diversity, celebrate our finest spaces, and unify our broad, expansive community. BEAT is dedicated to fostering and creating new audiences for Brooklyn’s dynamic population of performing artists.
At BEAT, we believe in the performing arts as a celebration of community and place. Brooklyn is our home, and it is the home to many of the finest performance innovators in the world. We believe the experience of the performing arts—voice, movement and theater—beautifies our community. And so, BEAT aims to bring Brooklyn’s performing arts legacy home by creating experiences for our artists and our residents throughout the borough.
THE BEAT FESTIVAL
The BEAT Festival is a yearly fall festival showcasing the greatest works of Brooklyn’s finest performing artists. It is a borough-wide festival, with shows in traditional theaters and unusual spaces. Through the events of the festival, new collaborations and performance experiences will be created.
