No Microphone

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

We are holding an evening of performance experiments, called “No Microphone.” It is a space to try things out before we exactly know what they are.

The impetus for the event is to provide more access to the luxuries of time, space and human attention. Something more public than a workshop but softer and more raw than the big frame of a commodified performance event. A studio practice for the material of presence, No Microphone is a space to attempt something that might not work: push out a little farther into the uncertain.
Please come be part of the audience.
