Call for submissions


Friends and Artists- we invite you to participate!

*Satsang Lounge new works performance series invites diverse talented Los Angeles based artists to exhibit, explore and workshop their newest works in the company of other artists and an audience.

SATSANG LOUNGE - had a fantastic Los Angeles debut at Theatre Theater on September 23 followed by an even more successful No. 2 on October 21! And we are putting the word out for SATSANG LOUNGE No. 3- Holiday Show, because we still have a few spots open and time is a ticking...

To begin, I want to formally introduce my S.L. business partner Liz Kent. Some of you may already know her but, for those who don’t, she is fantastic and has been an immense help in producing the shows.

The performances and film work in S.L. have been consistently good. Our artists are putting great ideas, creativity, energy and focus into their pieces and as a result the evenings are full of variety, talent and entertainment.

Audience members are leaving happy- some people who came to show No. 1 returned to see No. 2 and others have said to me- that the evenings have “that raw exciting New York Theater edge to them.”

As producers, we learn so much from one S.L. to the next and we want you to know that we are fully committed to making sure the quality and content of our evenings continues to improve with each show. This is a result of our careful selection process: all perspective performers and participants must submit, screen or audition their materials before being included in a S.L. evening line up.

**ATTENTION: actors, performers, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, writers- storytellers of all kinds! YOU, who have been developing a new piece- here is your opportunity try it out! No age limit! Let’s go!

Performance info:

The No. 3 Holiday Show will be a bit different from our regular shows. We are going to have more acts and less time for each. There is one intermission.

There will be between 9 to11 ‘acts’ on this evening. If your piece can have a holiday theme or reference or connection of some kind great- and if not- that’s fine too!

Each act has a 10-12 minute maximum -depending on genre.

There is a short tech (only 20-25 minutes per performer) the weekend before the show.

*Each performer is asked to do their absolute best to bring at least 4 people to the show.

SATSANG LOUNGE is an artist collective and performers are welcome to watch one another perform during the show.

All performers & participants are required to stay for the entire show- to get to know, enjoy and support fellow artists/ performers.

And you are always welcome to return and perform in the future shows-with priority booking.
WHEN & WHERE: Tuesday DEC 16, 7:30pm @ Theatre Theater (5041 Pico Blvd. off La Brea). It is a big great traditional theater venue that comrades Jeff Murray & Nicolette Chaffrey have owned and run for years.

*We have a great concessions situation—just like at a ball game or the circus- drinks and snack boxes are available for purchase before, during and after the show. Really, there is no need for your friends & family to eat dinner before the show!

Promotions & Business: We do our best to get listed in local papers- LA Times, LA weekly & LA City Beat. A press release will be sent out 2 weeks in advance, and each performer/participants gets a stack of postcards to invite and help promote- (your names will be on them-of course). And by all means we ask you to post/list & share the S.L. event on your Facebook & MySpace pages, websites, blogs, etc.!!!

If you are interested in participating in Satsang Lounge No. 3- Holiday Show- please contact us ASAP at:

*Hello- past performers and SATSANG LOUNGE Artists Collective Members-- please pass this performance opportunity on to those you know would appreciate!

Myspace address ---

*Satsang (is a Sanskrit word. sat = true, sanga = company): it describes an Indian philosophy (1) the company of the "highest truth," and (2) company of persons who listen to, talk about, and assimilate the truth. This typically involves listening to or reading scriptures, reflecting on, discussing and assimilating their meaning, meditating on the source of these words, and bringing their meaning into one’s daily life.

~I have taken this term and extended it to a company of artists- where discussing, sharing, witnessing, creating, and being in the company of other artists will inspire more creativity, feed our artistic spirits, and contribute to the realization of our life’s work.

With love. Misi Lopez Lecube & Liz Kent
