12 Minutes Max
Keep your finger on the pulse of regional performance with 12 Minutes Max, OtB’s performance lab that encourages artists and audiences to explore contemporary ideas in dance, theater and music. Curated by leaders of the arts community, this longstanding program gives artists the chance to test out new works-in-progress all under 12 minutes.
For the 12/13 season we’re taking 12 Minutes Max back to where it all got started, Washington Hall. See three editions in OtB’s original home as the artists get to create new works in this legendary space that housed early performances by everyone from Ella Fitzgerald and Jimi Hendrix to Mark Morris and The Wooster Group.
