This sit-down dinner party provides an unusual context for art presentation, inviting performers to inhabit a setting that is much more familiar to most than performance art. It is laden with meaning and associations, varying deeply across cultures and locales. We invite everyone to enjoy a dinner provided by Executive Director Josh Swick.
This second iteration of the Collective Arts Incubator Performance Art Dinner Party is tasked with addressing PRIVACY from any angle that can inhabit the dinner party setting. We are looking for work within the personal practices of participating artists that confronts the manifestations of privacy in modern life.
All attendees are invited to perform. Performers are invited to emerge over the length of the dinner at their own pace or more abruptly in solo spotlight performances. Performances will take place around the dining table outdoors in the courtyard or indoors in the kitchen.
Contact us for more information or to participate as a feature performer!
Dinner attendees who do not perform will be asked to contribute money for the performers, as there is no compensation.
Dinner served before performances
Performances begin after 8:00 pm
