It's always a pleasure to receive overlapping performance event invitations - A true indication that yes, Performance is Alive! This is one of those performance rich weekends so we compiled our top picks.
This Friday, Glasshouse presents an evening of performances highlighting the unique quality of their art/life/live gallery space. Contemporary Performance pulls from their giant network of 68,000 artists for an immersive, 3-day festival (don't worry, there won't be 68,000 performances but the RENEGADE PERFORMANCE GROUP with André M. Zachery on Friday, January 15th is a must see!) Lastly, Ofri Cnaani poses an interactive performance inspired by Equity Gallery's history of collaboration and advocacy.
So, brave the cold, put on your heat tech and go experience performance! See you there - Quinn Dukes
