Are you looking to expand your audiences? To experiment with new ways to tell stories and create community around your art?

We are cooking up a lot of future projects here at VirtualArtsTV but need to know more about the great non-union theater companies and non-union productions that are going on in NYC.

If you are part of a company or production we should know about, tell us who you are via the contact form on the right.

What kind of shows are we looking for?

Everything from traditional theater to dance to multi-media performances to things we can’t even think of… and  for all ages.  What matters most is that the work is good (totally subjective -but there it is) and that the artists are open to working with new ways to reach and interact with audiences all over the world.

Why aren’t we working with AEA?

Often we do.  We love AEA.  Many of us are current or former members of AEA. We work with AEA actors all the time and look forward to working with AEA in the future too. But,  we are also in the process of building a new industry – one that it is part theater, part online video, part social media and all LIVE. While the artists we work with almost always get paid, sometimes more than an applicable AEA contract would require (in addition we also usually use an independent film style contract so that everyone involved in a show shares in its longterm ownership), there are other stipulations of working with AEA that make it too hard for a start-up to grow and to experiment in ways that our new digital era demands. We want to keep all of our options open as we create new models of live performing arts that speak to a digital audience, that continue to attract audiences from all over the world, and that begin to create new revenue streams for actors, writers, dancers, designers, producers… for everyone.
