Join us in supporting new work in its earliest stages! 

Open Studio offers artists a regular platform to present a range of works-in-progress: from a few minutes of new material to a performance installation to an excerpt of a durational performance. All projects are self-contained and technically constrained, providing a low-pressure showcase that encourages experimentation. Audiences have the opportunity to engage informally with artists and give feedback after each showcase. 

This season, OtB Ambassador and 17/18 Season artist Dani Tirrell will be curating one Open Studio with artists whose projects will be developed over the year and will culminate in a showing in spring 2018.

Project proposals are considered three times over the season (see application deadlines below); performance dates and lineups will be posted online throughout the year.
