Yes, this is our new website! Aug 23, 2010

Though our stage is dark, we've been busy these summer months with all sorts of renovations and deep cleanings. Among them, a foxy new look and, more importantly, highly improved functionality for our website! We're still working out the kinks and new features (like a really great CALENDAR) will be added in the coming days. For now, though, a big shout out to Chris and Brian at Heavy Robot for working with me and making this happen in record time and with a maximum of humor!

Performance with Video Workshop by OtB Alumna Wynne Greenwood Jul 7, 2010

Sundays,   August 1, 8 & 15 | 10am – 1pm
$150  (Sliding scale available, please ask)
ages 18 and up
Hosted by:  LAWRIMORE PROJECT

In this workshop, you will learn the basic theory and practice of performance with video. Participants will explore – through lecture, screenings, discussion, in-class improvisation and group work – how contemporary artists use pre-recorded video in live performance. You will consider what video is, what performance is, and how video can be used to open up new possibilities for the development of a performance.

Participants will be working with found and pre-taped images as well as video images taped within the workshops. You will create live interaction with pre-recorded video images (both video projection and video monitors).

Register by Tuesday, July 27th

Congrats to Day 6's winner... May 6, 2010

...Renata!

Here's what she would ask an OtB artist:

My question is similar to Jeanna’s. What drives them to create and keep performing in spite of the fact that, in many cases, they can’t make their living out of their art?
