A FREE night of madness that feels like an art party.
A low-to-no tech celebration that happens once a year.
///UH…WHAT IS IT??///
This evening of performance is a chance for creators to show all the splattery half-ideas that they might feel foolish about exposing to the light of day.
///WHAT? YES! WHAT NOW?///
Want to throw yourself wildly into the middle of a show like this and as the audience, experience it in its “oh my god…they really took a swing at that…awesome” glory?
You are already good enough, so wanna show something?
email email@example.com or post on the facebook wall

Mascher’s low/no-tech studio series has paired up this year with <fidget> and The Center for Performance Research and their Performance Studio Open House series. Each month two Philly artists and two New York artists will share their works in progress on a Tuesday at CPR and on a Friday at thefidget space.
INFLUX is an opportunity for choreographers to share the latest iterations of their current projects as well as the questions, ideas, and challenges within their processes. Each artist will show 15 minutes or less of work followed by a conversation moderated by a dance practitioner from the community.
Performance Studio Open House is FREE at CPR and INFLUX is $10 donation at the door
