Research Project is a bimonthly works-in-progress performance series that offers a community forum for experimentation, emerging ideas, and artist-to-peer support. RP brings together movement-based artists in the midst of their creative development to show work, share process, give & receive response, and chew the fat. We cultivate a conversation that centers process over preferences and rigorous generosity over judgment.
At RP19, we’ll be taking in and responding to work by
Performances will last about an hour with discussion of about an hour to follow.
Refreshments provided. $12 suggested donation (all money to artists and space).
We regret that Outer Space is not wheelchair accessible. There are two flights of stairs going in to the space.
RP is hosted and coordinated by Nora Sharp and Aurora Tabar. RP has been at home at OuterSpace Studios in Wicker Park, Chicago since it was founded by Greer Dworman in 2013, initially supported by The Space Movement Project and now by The Watering Can Dance.
