THROW is a performance-development series curated and moderated by Sarah Maxfield. Upcoming installments are scheduled for:

October 7th, featuring works-in-progress by:
Anya Liftig, Joe P. Monteleone, and Aynsley Vandenbroucke

October 21st, featuring works-in-progress by:
Lenora Champagne and David Thomson

December 16th, featuring works-in-progress by:
Malcolm Low, Tiny Little Band, Emily Wexler, Katie Rose McLaughlin, Dahlia Nayar, and Billy Mullaney and Emily Gastineau.

THROW’s format is simple:

1. Artist shows an excerpt of a performance-in-process.
2. Artist asks the audience three questions about the excerpt.
3. Audience answers each question as simply and directly as possible.

“Coaching artists through the development of their questions for an audience always teaches me something – and always reinforces the feeling that making art is like drawing a map of the desert in a sandstorm. Even though it’s impossible to draw the map, our attempts bring us closer to understanding the desert, and that’s better than nothing. Plus, the more we compare maps, the better our collective understanding.”

If you’re interested in developing work through THROW, contact Sarah. Describe the project you’d like to workshop, focusing on the questions you’d like to explore with an audience. If possible, include links to video of your work (in performance and/or in process).
