Entry Point

Entry Point is a new platform for artists to develop their work in the early stages of creation, and then share that work with the public in a festival forum. Entry Point activities include staged readings, works-in-progress, open rehearsals, guest panel discussions and facilitated feedback between artists and audience after every showing.

The Entry Point series gives customized support to artists or groups who wish to develop theatre, dance, performance art, music or genre-defying performances. CPT connects projects to mentors who help offer feedback and guidance. Feedback at Entry Point is low-risk and focuses on nurturing projects.

Entry Point 2018 Runs January 18 – 21, 2018.
