Collision: When Visions Combine

August 28; The Momentary

What do you get when you bring together 10 different artists, each a master of their own practice, and let their visions combine in a night of never-before-seen performances?

COLLISION—and it is spectacular.

An exploration of process, exchange, and play, this collaborative performance experience invites 10 local artists to create and perform together for one night only. Presented in collaboration between the Momentary and CACHE, artists have been paired together based on their individual practices and interests, as well as how they might compliment or challenge one another. The outcome? Together, the artists’ practices merge into a 15-minute set, to be performed three times over the course of the night and across the Momentary.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness true artistic collaboration.
