United Solo’s 11th Annual New York Festival and Inaugural London Festival Postponed to 2021

In light of the ongoing global pandemic, United Solo, in collaboration with Theatre Row and The Actors Centre, has made the decision to postpone both the New York and London festivals to Fall 2021.
 
Dr. Omar Sangare, founder and artistic director of United Solo, offered the following statement: “United Solo has been here for solo performers for over a decade, bringing their unique craft to the epicenter of New York’s theatre district. This year was supposed to be special, with solo stars shining on our New York stage as well as London’s West End. 2020, however, turned out to be special in a different way. For everyone’s safety, we need to postpone the shows. All of the important stories will return to the stage victoriously next year, and we will be ready to continue our mission of promoting amazing solo work again.”
 
Be well, stay safe, and stay united!

#SoloActsUnited Campaign Continues

United Solo has received many inspiring videos from artists helping us go through this time of uncertainty. Our ongoing #SoloActsUnited has allowed international artists from various backgrounds and all walks of life to share how their art, views, and productivity have adapted as they continue to embrace constant change in their lives. Our Festival is built on a platform of diverse voices, therefore as a part of our video campaign, we asked our community to share their thoughts and advocacy for the #BlackLivesMatter Movement. The art and voices of artists matter now more than ever, and help us understand each other better, uniting various viewpoints into a conversation. Standing up for what is right is of the utmost importance, and we continue to look to our artistic family for that support. The community created around United Solo is truly unique in amplifying the voices otherwise unheard, or not heard loud enough.
 
Send us a video, up to 30 seconds long, and share your message you find important for others to hear. These videos will be posted on social media in addition to our ongoing #SoloActsUnited Video Campaign. You can email us at info@unitedsolo.org with your link to WeTransfer or downloadable Vimeo, and your social media handles.
 
Together, we can make important change happen for our world. Together, we are stronger. Stand as one. Stay united.
