About the show
Join us this January and February for CULTUREMART, our annual festival for the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP), where process becomes the focus. Beautifully produced, yet still in development, CULTUREMART provides a platform for current and former Resident Artists to blur the boundaries between dance, theatre, music, new media, puppetry, and visual art, melding these forms to support their adventurous visions. This year’s program features 13 workshop performances spanning topics and genres as varied as porn stars and poetry, opera and espionage, dance and cyborgs, and everything in-between.
If you’re on this page, you’re already a cultural insider; one whom we’d venture to guess appreciates being part of something new and fresh. So, we are thrilled to provide our Resident Artists and you, our audiences, CULTUREMART–a vital testing ground, an environment where you can sample live art in progress, provide feedback, and play a crucial role in the development of new work. With a limited number of performances, festival tickets sell fast, don't wait to book yours!
