The Vermont International Performance Salon (VIPs) is a virtual presentation and viewing platform co-hosted by community-based not-for profit arts organizations between the Vermont- Quebec border to give performers and audiences the chance to get back into the theater in some way on these dark nights of Covid.
The V.I.P.s partner venues offer a cross-pollination of work between borders over four weekends that expands the accessibility of performers, audience, and ideas while their venues are forced to close their doors.
Each weekend VIPs will showcase a selected curation of performers for your viewing pleasure April 24- May 16. Tune in anytime between 10am on Saturday through 7pm on Sunday to view filmed performance pieces by artists from the United States, Canada, and beyond who have graciously made their work available for viewing on one of these weekends. Viewing is free, but we encourage donations to our presenting venues and/or individual artists as you are able. We are delighted to lift the curtain on Covid and offer audiences, performers, and venues the opportunity to ease back into our next normal. Use the Upcoming Events to the left to access our weekly offerings!
Join us for our Sunday Soirees! This week hosted by Theatre Lac-Brome!
On each Sunday of our festival at 7pm, we will be holding a Zoom gathering of artists, audience, and venues to meet the artists, discuss the work showcased, and celebrate the performing arts in all its forms. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
