Performance Club

The Performance Club is an imagined library in which everyone quietly engages in one’s own research for 45 minutes following a pre-scheduled 15-minute work-in-process by a single artist. The entire evening runs for exactly one hour.

 

"It has been a busy and productive 2024 for the Deborah Hay Dance Company with much of our work and development occurring in Austin. Following February Evenings with Deborah Hay 2024, Hay decided to set in motion a Performance Club that will start October 2024 and running through March 2025."

- Deborah Hay Dance Company

PERFORMANCE DETAILS

Each individual performer will have the opportunity to share a work-in-process, limited to 15 minutes, for 5 consecutive nights. During the remaining 45 minutes, everyone present is invited to generously attend to their own interests without imposing those interests on anyone else, possibly inspired by the 15-minute study. All performances will begin at 7 pm and end at 8 pm (unless otherwise decided by the performing artists).

Every night’s event is precisely 1 hour.

 

PERFORMING ARTIST RESPONSIBILITY

Each artist is responsible for securing the location for the five consecutive evenings. Members who attend are invited to help cover the cost of studio rental and pay donations directly to the artist at the door. The artist may keep the remaining donations as their performance fee.

 

 

MEMBERSHIP PARTICIPATION
