2019 Under the Radar Festival Symposium Coming Attractions, a work sharing session
The Public Theater, New York
The 2019 Under the Radar Festival Symposium at The Public Theater in New York presented Coming Attractions—a work sharing session—livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Saturday 5 January 2019 at at 10:30 a.m. EST (New York, UTC -5) / 9:30 a.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 7:30 a.m. PST (Los Angeles, UTC -8) / 15:30 (London, UTC +0) / 16:30 (Berlin, UTC +1).
Coming Attractions is a chance for Under the Radar Festival to share exciting work that is in development with our audiences and Symposium presenters. Hosted by Andrew Kircher, this event has moved from being a pitch session (transactional) to a more open studio approach, where the artist introduces themselves, their past work and that of their collaborators, and shares a bit about the new project (with performance, images, videos, design sketches) while locating the work in its development life. Each artist will have a few minutes to present.

Over the last 15 years, The Public’s Under the Radar Festival has presented over 229 companies from 42 countries. It has grown into a landmark of the New York City theater season and is a vital part of The Public's mission, providing a high-visibility platform to support artists from diverse backgrounds who are redefining the act of making theater. Widely recognized as a premier launching pad for new and cutting-edge performance from the U.S. and abroad, Under the Radar Festival has presented works by such respected artists as Elevator Repair Service, Nature Theater of Oklahoma, Gob Squad, Belarus Free Theatre, Guillermo Calderón, and Young Jean Lee.
