Performance Lab: In the Round Oct 16, 2019


Performance Lab is a continuation of OtB's longstanding commitment to showcasing works-in-progress by artists from across the Pacific Northwest. Artistic risk is a cornerstone of OtB's mission & values: supporting new works by artists from our community is one of the most important ways we manifest this commitment. Each Lab includes a Q&A with the artists, who discuss their pieces and processes with the audience and each other.

Co-curated by Performance Lab Producer Charles Smith and artist KT Kusmaul.
