THROW is a performance-development series, I created, curated and moderated, and which lasted for about a decade at The Chocolate Factory Theater, after beginning its life at the old Galapagos Arts Space.
THROW may return again someday…
THROW’s format is simple:
1. Artist shows an excerpt of a performance-in-process.
2. Artist asks the audience three questions about the excerpt.
3. Audience answers each question as simply and directly as possible.
Coaching artists through the development of their questions for an audience always teaches me something – and always reinforces the feeling that making art is like drawing a map of the desert in a sandstorm. Even though it’s impossible to draw the map, our attempts bring us closer to understanding the desert, and that’s better than nothing. Plus, the more we compare maps, the better our collective understanding.
