Split Knuckle Theatre brings its world-renowned show Endurance to the APAP/NYC conference this January!

Let's Bring Endurance to NYC! 

Split Knuckle Theatre’s rousing combination of Antarctic adventure and office gymnastics has traveled the world from Thailand to Greece, from London, England to Lenox, Massachusetts. Now it’s time to bring Endurance to the heart of American theatre, New York City. We’re coming to the Tank Theatre this January 10-13th to take part in the APAP/NYC conference.

What is APAP/NYC?

“The annual conference of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters is the world's largest networking forum and marketplace for performing arts professionals. More than 3,500 presenters, artists, managers, agents and emerging arts leaders from 28 countries convene in New York City for five days of professional development, business deals and exciting performances.” 

 A good showing at APAP/NYC will open doors to theaters around the country and the world. You can help us make it happen!

What your money will go towards:

1. APAP Conference Registration - $820.00 This pays to get Split Knuckle Theatre into the conference, giving us access to agents, managers and producers from around the world.

2. APAP Space - $1515.00 This pays for us to rent a booth where we can pitch the show. We’ve booked a great corner spot that receives a lot of traffic.  

3. Our Conference Set - $1500.00 Split Knuckle needs to make a splash at APAP. With so many different companies vying for producers, we have to capture their attention. We have a professional set designer creating a fantastic booth for us.

4. Shipping and storing the set- $1000.00 Our set has been traveling the globe—we’ve got to get it to NYC and keep it safe and sound.

5. Paying the Artists - $1500.00 Split Knuckle believes that to make great art you must gather together top-notch professional artists. The stage managers, designers, performers—all the artists involved in Endurance will be working hard over the next few months to bring this show to New York City.

These are just a few of the costs involved in producing this show for APAP/NYC. We have set ourselves a goal of $6,335.00 to help bring this show to NYC—and if we can surpass that goal, then all the better!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In the city that never sleeps, theatre is everywhere. The biggest challenge for Split Knuckle will be to get producers, agents and managers to choose to see Endurance.

But we have experience with this in our past. At the Edinburgh Fringe, there were thousands of shows competing for an audience. To get people in the door, you had to make a presence, get the word out and—above all—have a great show for the patrons to see. Well, we already have a show that has been praised worldwide. Now we need to get the word out!
