What is Open Performance?

A program of non-curated shared showings of experimentation and work-in-process, for artists at all stages of their development. The events are centered around a discussion, moderated by a Movement Research Artist-in-Residence or guest artist, where we will experiment with different feedback methods to support and inform the artists’ process.

Open Performance moderator: Deborah Black, Jenna Beardsley, Maria Jose Contreras

Arrive early. Spaces are limited. Artists may perform unmasked if they provide same-day proof of a negative COVID test.
