OZ Arts Nashville Announces 2024 Brave New Works Lab Lineup

OZ Arts Nashville reveals the artists selected for its third annual Brave New Works Lab.

OZ Arts Nashville today announced the line-up for its third annual Brave New Works Lab, a development program for innovative new artistic creations that transforms the organization’s expansive warehouse into a laboratory for local artists. Performances will span across disciplines, as creative minds specializing in dance, theater, music, multimedia, and interdisciplinary collaborations will have a chance to debut their newest artistic ventures.

This year’s projects include a high-velocity work for seven dancers by choreographer Asia Pyron and PYDANCE; a collaborative blend of music, multimedia, poetry, and movement by Sarah Saturday, Dan Hoy, and Garage Collective; an evocative dance and visual performance by Arelys Hernandez and Sandy Perez; and a rap, Hip-hop, poetry and music collaboration by Nashville writer Cameron Mitchell and national award-winning writer Idris Goodwin (Def Poetry Jam).

The Brave New Works Lab is designed to give local artists an opportunity to boldly premiere new creations and works-in-progress in a welcoming and safe space designed to bring together creators and art lovers for three evenings of artistic expression. OZ supports these brave artists by providing them with the resources needed to bring their creative ideas to life. The Lab aligns directly with OZ’s focus on producing and presenting the work of local artists who reflect the city’s diverse society, utilize new artistic forms and technology in creative ways, and provide opportunities for meaningful engagement with audiences.

OZ Arts will present Brave New Works May 16-18 in its expansive creative warehouse. Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now at the following link. Artist applications for the next edition of Brave New Works Lab will open in the fall of 2024.

This performance is made possible with generous support from donors and grants, including funding from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and the Tennessee Arts Commission, and media sponsorship by the Nashville Scene.
