About the Festival
Over the last 25 years, the festival has become the Northwest's premiere laboratory for the creation of cutting edge, risk-taking performance. During the course of 2 weekends on 2 stages audiences can experience a spectrum of brand-new performances and works-in-progress by Pacific Northwest-based artists and ensembles. These artists are defining the region's future in dance, music and theater. Don't miss your chance to see tomorrow's innovators today.

The festival lineup was curated by a panel of peer artists and arts administrators from the region.
