Fertile Ground 2015 is a 11-day arts festival that will be held January 22 through February 1 in Portland, Oregon. This city-wide festival is focused on new work in the Arts. It will feature world premiere projects, staged readings, developing works and a myriad of other arts events from the Portland creative community. The 2014 Festival included more than 75 Portland-generated new works. From fully staged world premieres in theatre, to ensemble and collaborative driven work, dance, comedy, visual art and film…this festival spans the spectrum of creative endeavor and seeds the next generation of creation through artist conversations, workshops, lunchtime readings and more.
Fertile Ground is ecstatic to offer festival-goers this group of Portland-generated, world premiere projects! These shows are fully formed and ready for the stage, for audience members to have a world premiere theatrical experience. In many cases, this means with technical support and design (light, sound, set, props) and in a theatre. In some cases, fully formed means that the producer/creator has developed a new show just as they want it for a public performance. Some of these shows have performance dates that extend beyond the festival weekends — check listings for complete run dates and try to catch them all.
