Mandatory. NW New Works gives you a snapshot of all the performance/theater/dance you're going to be talking about a year from now. Some stuff is in-progress. Some stuff is close to done. Some stuff is the best. Some stuff is ???. But part of the joy is figuring out which performance has the most potential to become the next mind-melting, genre-altering thing that will emerge from this region and conquer the rest of the country. An early version of the 2016 Stranger Genius-nominated production That'swhatshesaid started here, as have several other award-winning shows by artists such as zoe | juniper, Pat Graney, and Amy O'Neal. This year there's lots of new faces, and lots of vets trying out new things. Britt Karhoff's got a solo dance piece about #shoutyourabortion and the wage gap. Queer/woman/POC-centered dance group, Au Collective, plans to collapse the personal and the mythological in Bayanihan: A Collection of Physical Tales. Mallery Avidon and Jeff Aaron are unveiling a new opera thing that should be hilarious and wild. Gary Hill is going to fill the studio space with flashes of 3,000 watt light, which is enough to turn audience members into afterimages. The Three Yells will present their interpretation of Giselle through butoh and "athletic contemporary dance." I see no other choice but to block off both weekends. RS
