The Performance Project, a non-profit arts organization based in Springfield MA, is seeking a Booking Agent and/or Tour Coordinator to help plan a local and regional tour of First Generation Ensemble’s Mother Tongue, a 90 minute multilingual physical theater piece. We have funding for a position averaging 20 hours a month.
We’ve received a grant from the NEA specifically to tour Mother Tongue, and although we have extensive experience performing in our area (Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Massachusetts counties), we need to hire someone with experience who can help to broaden the reach of our tour to other areas in MA and other nearby states.
We hope to find someone who can jump in ASAP and begin to connect with venues, reach out to new presenting partners, and develop our tour schedule for 2023-2024. As a starting point, we already have a list of potential venues, some with already existing relationships and connections.

First Generation creates multilingual physical theater performances inspired by their own life experiences, and the experiences of their families and communities. Their work touches upon themes such as diaspora, language, culture, xenophobia, transphobia, hypermasculinity, racism, the power of youth voice, liberation, and revolution.
