NW New Works Festival

SIXTEEN ORIGINAL WORKS ON TWO STAGES OVER TWO WEEKENDS

Now in its 33rd year, the NW New Works Festival presents experimental and in-progress work from Northwest artists.

The Festival provides artists with rehearsal time, an honorarium, documentation, and the opportunity to present their work on the stages of OtB. The NW New Works Festival has helped launch careers for many local performers. Artists such as Zoe Scofield, Trimpin, Paul Budraitis, Hand2Mouth, Waxie Moon, Lori Goldston, Kyle Loven, Degenerate Art Ensemble, and Sarah Rudinoff have all participated in the Festival.

The festival lineup is curated by a panel of peer artists and arts administrators.
