ATTIC (Work-in-Progress Showing) May 1, 2020

Due to the recent COVID-19 health crisis we are suspending ticket sales for ATTIC (Work-in-Progress Showing). We hope to be able to provide you with more information about programmatic rescheduling very soon. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this challenging time. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns please contact Director of External Relations, Samie Detzer, at

Pat Graney will present movement and video in development for ATTIC, and lead a conversation about her thoughts on the development of this project and her goals for its final production (now slated for late 2020). ATTIC will be the third and final part of Graney’s acclaimed House of Mind trilogy. 

ATTIC investigates rape culture. Sexual assault of young women, and their often-downward spiral into destruction and suicide, threads throughout the work. 

Seattle-based choreographer Pat Graney has received Choreography Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as from Artist Trust, the Washington State Arts Commission, the NEA International Program, National Corporate Fund for Dance and the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. In 2008, Graney was awarded both the Alpert Award and a US Artists Award in Dance. She has received an ‘Arts Innovator’ Award from Artist Trust. In 2013 Ms. Graney was one of 20 Americans to receive a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. In 2017, Ms. Graney was selected as one of 8 individuals to receive the ‘Crosscut Courage Award’ from KCTS Public Television for her 25 years of working with women in prison.
