Cameo Lethem: Isla (Dance | Seattle)
A dance experiment, using light beams and violins, investigates an individual’s perception of isolation amid a collective of shared, physical experiences.   

Katie Piatt: Male Fragility: A Night of Rant & Reason (Performance | Portland)
Patriarchy’s tradition of cutting off men from their feelings and solely rewarding aggression leaves us all with stories to tell, and sometimes, to rant.

PETE (Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble): Deception Unit (Theater | Portland)
Kitchen sink realism is slowly suffocated with a pillow of subtext, and the narrative goes into witness protection.

Kim Lusk: Quartet for the Dead Set (Dance | Seattle) 
Subtle humor, technical footwork, 90s pop beats and a bit of country giddy-up in a story about the ultimate power of the unlikely winner.

About the Festival

The NW New Works Festival showcases fully produced 20 minute new and experimental works from Northwest performers. Curated by a panel of peer artists and arts administrators from the region, the Festival provides rehearsal time, an honorarium, documentation, and the opportunity to present the work on the stages of OtB. NW New Works has been going strong since 1984.

In the past few years, audiences have witnessed incredibly strong work from artists such as Tim Smith-Stewart/Jeffrey AzevedoJessica Jobaris & General Magic, and Markeith Wiley — all of whose work could be seen in the 16/17 season!

In upcoming seasons, we will be looking to expand the scope of the Festival both socially and artistically.
