2020-2021 Season

Season Overview

Entirely online, we welcomed new Artistic Director Sanjeet Takhar to the team as we navigated lockdowns with new forms of programming.

Our venue was only accessible (and only for artists and crew) for 4 months of our season, yet we innovated with programming such as the Exquisite Corpse-themed “Exquisite Departures”, an interactive web-only presentation of Jason Doell’s “Turnonandbenotalone”, a circumpolar concert presentation organized with Native Women In The Arts, and Takhar’s first programming, the inaugural “What Is” Festival.

This season is dedicated to opening up, both literally and metaphorically. Breaking norms, creating opportunities, and celebrating successes.
