Vaudeville Nights

Philosophy & History

The producers of VU actively cultivate emerging talent by mentoring new artists, providing a safe yet challenging venue in which to develop their work, as well as ongoing feedback.  The producers also actively encourage professional artists to explore artistic media outside their realm of expertise, creating opportunities for experimental, interdisciplinary work for Vaudeville Underground.

For the audience, Vaudeville Underground provides a safe and fun environment to experience live performance. If you don't like what you see, wait ten-minutes. Poets, modern dancers, filmmakers, and performance artists perform right along side circus artists, jugglers, and clowns. But wait... there's always more!

Ideas Take Many Forms
Both Artistic Directors of Voice of the City have many artistic interests; they believe many other artist have, as well. But in school the artist is taught to keep to one field of study. To study more than one discipline, is to be, well, undisciplined. Voice of the City believes the artist has many facets. Idea comes first, form second. A creative idea an artist has may best be served as a photograph, a dance, or a play. If that idea is outside the artists "expertise", instead of fitting that idea to the form they know, the "Phat" artist, within a community of professional artists, can collaborate.  

Vaudeville Underground is an environment that offers a warm, non-competitive environment that fosters collaboration, promotes the work of the artists, and encourages dialogue between artist and audience. 

Vaudeville Underground invites the artist and audience to enjoy all of the arts, all under one roof.
