Membership FAQ

 

How do I get a ticket to a show?

 

Super Secret Arts doesn’t have tickets the way most live arts producers do. We’re built on a membership model. It’s essentially Netflix for live performance.

 

To come to a Super Secret Arts show, you either purchase a membership and then reserve a seat (for free), or come as a one-off guest of an existing member. Membership gives you unlimited, free access to all the shows happening on a monthly basis, space permitting. It’s like a $25 ticket that gets you in all month long. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in April, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Does my membership auto-renew?

 

Yes, on a monthly basis, for the same rate of $25.

But there’s only one show in February!

 

If you’re a new member that signs up in February, your initial $25 gets you unlimited access until April 1st, when your billing cycle will renew. If you’re an existing member, your membership also won’t renew until April 1st.

 

How do I cancel my membership?

 

You can either login to your account on supersecretarts.com, click on ‘your account’ and click cancel. Or, if you’d prefer, you can email us at supersecretarts@gmail.com to request cancellation and we can take care of it for you. Regardless, you’ll still have free access to our shows for the remainder of your current pay period!

 

Do I have to sign up in advance? Or can I just show up and buy a membership at the box office?

 

It helps us streamline the process if you do sign up and reserve seats in advance, but you can absolutely sign up (and purchase seats for any guests) when you arrive at the venue. QR codes linking to the sign-up page are prominently displayed in the lobby and entrance foyer. Simply scan the code, sign up, and show your confirmation email to the staff member at the door.

 

Can I buy a ticket for a guest at the door?

 

Yes, you can buy access for guests for $15/person at the door, whether you bought your membership ahead of time, or at the venue. We accept Venmo, cash, and credit cards.

I just want to come to one show. Can I just buy a single ticket?

 

If you only want to come to a single, specific show, you have two options: 1) Sign up for the membership, and then cancel immediately (though you would still have free access all month long!), or 2) you could go with someone that is a member as a guest of theirs for $15, with no further obligation on your part. 

 

Ok I’m a member- what does this $25 monthly subscription give me?

 

Your membership gives you unlimited, free access to all of the shows happening in our Gowanus venue, space-permitting. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in Q1 of 2022, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Where do the shows happen?

 

Currently, all shows happen at our Gowanus venue on the second floor of 400 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215. We’re a short walk from 4th and 9th FGR, and the B103 stops right outside our door. We’re around the corner from the Gowanus Whole Foods, if that helps.

 

The BYOB thing – what’s the deal?

 

We’re in the process of acquiring a beer and wine license – in the meantime, you can purchase non-alcoholic beverages and snacks at our concession stand, and, if you’re 21+, bring your own beer, cider, and wine. Please no hard liquor.

 

What are your COVID policies?

 

We want everyone to be safe and stay healthy as we all traverse what is hopefully the tail end of the pandemic. We require proof of vaccination and a matching photo ID for entrance to any of our shows and events. We encourage mask wearing while not actively eating or drinking.

FESTIVAL

Cosmic Cherry Arts Festival (Full Line Up Below)

Curated and co-produced by Make/Shift and This Is Akin, Cosmic Cherry Arts Festival is an annual, all-inclusive celebration of femininity, empowerment and gender nonconformity, featuring the work of dozens of femme and genderqueer artists. These works include writing (film, theater, narrative, poetry), performance art, visual art, video, movement, music, and comedy.

Formerly known as SHE Creates, we have recently rebranded in order to provide a more gender inclusive platform for our artists and makers. Cosmic Cherry derives from the festival's blend of the magical creative energy our artists bring with a powerful punch of bad*ssery. This festival is meant to make our artists and audiences feel sexy, empowered, and full of that cosmic creative goodness. 

This festival started in 2018 as a one-night all-inclusive celebration of femme and genderqueer artists. And it has evolved year after year to showcase the amazing work of dozens of artists. For more info on our past festivals, click here

This year, we are super excited to invite you for a week-long festival that will be featuring several performing acts, a visual arts gallery, concessions bar and a vendor market.

We hope you’ll join us for drink, food, art, and celebration!

If it helps: Leo sun- mostly loud, Aries rising- but also angry?, Gemini moon- buuut mostly confused

Screen Shot 2022-01-29 at 1.47.18 PM - Sophia Metcalf.png

A Granite Garden started out of necessity. It was a way for two people in a long distance relationship to break the monotony of basic communication. Over two years, Seamus would write guitar parts and Cameron would create the melodies. They collaborate on lyrics and sometimes enlisted the help of their friend Emma Payne. Since moving to New York Cameron and Seamus have started to share their music under the name A Granite Garden. This is the beginning of a whole new chapter in their relationship, one that is not about surviving apart, but thriving together. IG: @agranitegarden
