About the We Series:
We each have an affect on the rooms we enter. With our presence we bring our personal experience and hidden motivations. We encounter others who bring the same. And in this ecology we can develop a common purpose that amplifies, refracts, upsets, or transcends the notions we brought in with us. Just by being together we are making meaning, with and for each other.

We Series is a festival presenting live art that blurs the boundary between performance and reality. Every Tuesday in November, the We Series offers rituals, participatory performance, and immersion in artist-led experiences.

Because your presence at the We Series affects us all, we ask some things of you:
Arrive knowing your presence is part of the event. You may be called to participate.
Depending on the evening, you may need to bring or prepare something. Read instructions carefully.
