The New Performance Series is a co-production effort for companies and individual artists who are mounting a full production. The residency productions (usually world premieres) form the centerpiece of the Incubator Arts Project’s programming, and each season offers a varied collection of live art. The program is curated by Travis Just, Samara Naeymi, Daniel Nelson, Brendan Regimbal and Shannon Sindelar.
Please note that the call for applications happens on the Incubator website each fall. Applications are currently available via the home page and close September 1. Programming is currently established through June 2013. The New Performance series does not offer development space but does include support from the Incubator staff for various aspects of production.

7AM: Di Mattina - based on Francis of Assisi’s allegories and hallucinations – is a performance & visual installation with original arias in early Italian idioms juxtaposed with an electro-acoustic soundscape, coupled with live video evoking isolated figures in urban setting and contrasted with projected art inspired by natural landscapes..
vampire cowboys //
The Vampire Cowboys return to the Incubator with an all new work from playwright Crystal Skillman. With pissed-off Pikachus, steam punk armies,
stood-up Sailor Moons and roller-blading monsters
on the prowl, it's easy to get lost in the Inferno-esque
anime convention where the fans, the otakus,
and the geeks prowl. But to score a rare signature
from their comic book idol, teenage outcasts
Dayna and Honey will take on obsessive magic players,
Jedis and elfs, cosplayers and convention guards -
through all nine flights of Ohio's Dante's Fire-Con -
to get a chance to shake hands with their pop-culture hero
