Right Here Commissions’ mission wth The Right Here Showcase is to support and promote the work of MN-based, mid-career, performing artists who create original contemporary performance, and introduce audiences to their work.
The impetus for this project came from Project Founder/Leader Paul Herwig. Over his 39-year career, Paul, a native Minnesotan, has lived and worked in Paris, Toronto, NYC, and Detroit, including 10 years of touring throughout 25 US states. For the past 20 years he has made Minneapolis his home, working as an actor and set designer.
In 2013 Paul received a Jerome Travel-Study grant to attend festivals in New York, Toronto, and Portland, to meet with their producing directors, and learn about festival organization from behind the scenes. Then in 2014 Paul was awarded an MSAB Artist Initiative grant for his Right Here Showcase project, which he produced later that year. That inaugural Showcase was in 2014; Paul founded Right Here Commissions in 2016; and this will be the 6th iteration of this vital community program.
