#SoloActsUnited Video Campaign Continues

Back by popular demand, United Solo invites you to join our second #SoloActsUnited Video Campaign. In response to the public health crisis, we had solo performers from around the world submit videos expressing their thoughts and their talents under the umbrella of three different topics. We welcome all solo performers to send us a video, up to 30 seconds long, to share your perspective on why art is so crucial in the time we are living in.
 
Let’s take on six new themes for our second #SoloActsUnited Video Campaign:
 
1. Actor training in times of quarantine
2. Your tips for keeping social distance in theatres
3. Challenges in creating a solo piece
4. The best solo production you have ever seen
5. Present a 30-second solo musical orchestrated with your kitchen supplies
6. Create a theatre costume with pieces available at home
 
Please submit your videos via a downloadable link (either through WeTransfer or Vimeo) to info@unitedsolo.org by Monday June 1, 2020. These videos will be shared on social media via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so we encourage you to send a downloadable link that will be compatible for these purposes. We thank you for continuing to lend your artistic voices to bring us together during this time.

 

 
As in our Festival’s Mission Statement since its inception: You think solo. You feel solo. You act united!

#SoloActsUnited

United Solo invites you to join our #SoloActsUnited Video Campaign in response to the current public health crisis. We welcome our friends in the United Solo community to share their artistic insights and talents in this time of uncertainty. We encourage you to send us a video, up to 30 seconds long, to share your perspective on your show, on your art, and on the world at this time.

 
For starters, let’s take on any of our 3 first themes:
 
1) Explain to our viewer what the new normal will be.
 
2) With your sense of humor, tell us a joke that will lift our spirits.
 
3) Tap into your creativity and share with us a story that you might share around a campfire.
 
Please submit your videos via a downloadable link (either through WeTransfer or Vimeo) to info@unitedsolo.org by Thursday, April 30, 2020. These videos will be shared on social media via Instagram/Facebook stories, so we encourage you to send a downloadable link that will be compatible for these purposes. We thank you for continuing to lend your artistic voices to bring us together during this time.

United Solo is continuing to monitor the situation related to COVID-19. It is our strong belief that we will return in the Fall season to reclaim the stage and share our stories with one another. We look forward to returning to a state of stability where we can express ourselves creatively through the art of solo performance.
