The FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL centers transgender, gender-nonconforming and queer artists of color, and lifts up our performing artists as truthtellers who light and lead the way to our collective liberation, healing and JOY.
The FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL is the only event of its kind in North America, and features the Bay Area’s and the nation’s leading trans, gender-nonconforming and queer dance, theater, music and multi-disciplinary performance artists.
We present artists performing new work in an enormous variety of forms: bachata, ballroom, bomba, opera, hula, modern dance, hip hop, solo performance, mixed abilities dance, theater, voguing, opera, Blues, R&B, gospel, Americana, folk, rock opera, choirs, electronic music, acapella, humor, spoken word and poetry, Afro-Colombian dance, aerial dance / trapeze and more.
The FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL is celebrated for its exquisite artistry, innovation and performances that are deeply moving, relevant, innovative, articulate and fresh.
Please submit the work you want considered for the Festival.
NOTE: We do not present full-length works: all submissions must be less than 15 minutes in length.
