Undiscovered Countries' Infinite Festival is an ongoing series of new and developing live art, performing every other month. The festival was founded to create a space for artists to show in-progress work without paying for production, and for audiences to see that work without paying for tickets. 

Goodbye Blue Monday, Brooklyn Fireproof, Quinn’s NYC, and 

The Infinite Festival has now presented 50 consecutive monthly or bimonthly showings at various New York venues, including

our current home at Bizarre Bushwick. Over one hundred emerging artists have worked with Undiscovered Countries to produce their in-development works, which have gone on to productions at Dixon Place, Tom Noonan’s Paradise Factory, and the PIT. 

We are currently accepting submissions for the March 2018 show, and to future shows on a rolling basis. 

To submit a piece, send a proposal to undiscoveredcountriesfestival@gmail.com or fill out the form
