Expanding the possibilities
of performance

Festival Programming Announcement: June 26th

Programming Streams

Our year-round activities and summer Festival offer four distinct streams of programming designed to provide unique supports to creative projects and processes while offering audiences a dynamic choice in how they engage with the work:


SummerWorks Presentations
Fully-developed new works, offering a snapshot of contemporary performance.

SummerWorks Lab
A place for exploration, experimentation, and process, where new work is incubated or shared at crucial stages of development.

SummerWorks Public Works
Free performances, bringing artists and audiences together to experience and deepen our relationship to public space in new ways.

SummerWorks Exchange
A dynamic space for emergent creative thinking to come into focus and conversation, for the development of artistic practice and for skill-building, and for communities to gather together with intention around relevant and urgent topics.
